Embraer has signed an agreement with Avian Inventory Management to handle the purchasing, marketing, and distribution rights for Embraer’s commercial and business aircraft spare parts inventory. The deal will begin by the end of the first quarter and will see Avian consolidate the airframer’s worldwide surplus spare part inventory in its new Orlando, Florida facility.
“With this long-term agreement with Avian, we will be able to increase our reach and accessibility in parts distribution, at the same time allowing us to increase performance and efficiency with focus on customer needs,” said Johann Bordais, president and CEO of Embraer Services and Support.
Customers will continue to have access to all of Avian’s inventory through their regular Embraer sales channels, as well as through its designated sales channel partners such as DASI, Unical, and Regional Airline Support Group.
“This partnership is an example of Embraer’s ability to adjust its long-term strategy while keeping a complete focus on its customers,” said Avian CEO Ian Gurekian. “Avian was able to work together with Embraer to design a solution that meets both their financial and operational goals while creating a platform that keeps Embraer close to and integrated with its customer base.”
