APOC Aviation has promoted Karim Grinate to the position of VP Component Sales as the organisation evolves its airline support programmes. Grinate has been with the Company for just over a year and has steered the solid performance of the component sales division as it has sustained triple digit annual growth across the business.
“As our airline customers seek to re-start their operations across the world we are pleased to announce the induction of a broad inventory of A320 family compatible components. We’re ready to provide a range of highly flexible support options, including exchange/lease/loan programmes. Throughout the COVID-19 crisis we have built on our reputation for innovation and developed some exclusive packages, including free unit opportunities which have been very successful as operators seek to minimise their costs” explains Grinate.
Formerly operated by Air Macau, APOC acquired two A319-132 airframes (MSN 1758 and 1790) earlier in the year for part-out. After assessment the majority of the harvested A319 parts are being returned to serviceable status by APOC’s audited group of sophisticated MROs and OEMs.
Stock from MSN 1790 has now been shipped back to the Rotterdam warehouse to form part of the Company’s rapidly expanding inventory of spares.
“In discussion with customers we are exploring various deployment strategies” divulges Grinate. “We’re open to new ideas, finding ways to make the impossible possible. It’s tough out there, but APOC is ready to push the boundaries so our customers can keep on flying.”
