Montréal, 4th October 2012 - AJW Technique, the new global component repair and overhaul service based in Montréal has chosen Component Control, the industry leading MRO software specialists, to provide integrated MRO management software solutions for the entire facility. As the Company embarks on a comprehensive re-start programme, the decision to deploy the robust and aviation specific system that the AJW Group already utilizes across its complete aircraft spares support flagship, A J Walter Aviation, was an easy one.
In September AJW purchased the component repair business of Aveos Fleet Performance and the Company is committed to supporting a sustainable and substantial MRO business from the outset. AJW has an established and growing global customer base of more than 800 airlines, with over 400 aircraft under contract - and this is set to increase rapidly. AJW Technique will develop to offer full supply chain component repair management. It will reduce turnaround times and contribute further to the organisation's pledge to deliver measureable cost savings for customers.
Greg Martin, General Manager of AJW Technique explains: "We wanted a fast and affordable deployment with the richest functionality out-of-the-box. Our teams are already familiar with Quantum and we have collaborated with Component Control for many years to develop precise functionality that improves our business and productivity. Setting up our own repair facility brings new challenges. Our customers already demand competitive service levels with cost guarantees and over the next few months, as we rebuild workshop capabilities and ramp up the services that will form the core of our programme, we will need the reliability of Quantum."
CEO of Component Control, Z Bar-On, adds "As AJW diversifies its business model we are eager to bring our technology and expertise to help. In the case of AJW Technique we are also providing fully integrated accounting, CRM and integrated supply chain management functionality."
The fast deployment of Quantum will provide greater ROI to AJW Technique and ensure that the new facility engineers-in and maintains excellence in quality management and customer service from the outset. It is envisaged that AJW Technique will commence component repair services in the first quarter of 2013.
AJW Technique will provide a broad range of component repair and overhaul services to the A J Walter Aviation customer base of more than 800 airlines. Utilising one of the best industry-specific engineering skill bases in the world, it will become a centralised hub for the AJW repair supply chain. This is focused on delivering world class reliability, guaranteed availability of components, and first class turn times to deliver improved efficiencies and minimise AOG costs; and the provision of superior warranties backed up by competitive pricing. http://www.ajw-aviation.com/our-business/ajw-technique.html
