GAMECO (Guangzhou Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Co., Ltd.), a leading MRO in China, and Satair, an Airbus Services company, have signed a multi-year agreement for Integrated Material Services (IMS) program, a comprehensive expendables material solution.

IMS service offers an end-to-end supply chain solution that includes planning, forecasting, sourcing, purchasing and logistics, covering all expendables required in the typical aircraft maintenance lifecycle.

The new solution covers a large scope of parts leveraging on Satair’s global capabilities and local competencies to deliver increased flexibility and plannability through consignment stocks, guaranteed service levels and the support of onsite personnel.

GAMECO and Satair have built a strategic cooperative relationship for material services since 2015, when GAMECO became the first customer in China for Satair’s Airbus Managed Inventory (AMI) solution.

With the new agreement, the solution is developed in close collaboration with GAMECO as both a partner and a customer.

Marc Szepan, General Manager of GAMECO, says “We are delighted to be Satair’s first IMS customer in China. Working with Satair to integrate their material services will help us manage our stock and supply chain more efficiently to the benefit of our customers.

“We are excited to expand our relationship with Satair and lay the foundation for joint future growth as strategic long term business partners.”

Andy Lee, Managing Director of Satair China, said “We are very delighted to welcome GAMECO as the first IMS customer in China and strengthen the mutual trust in our strategic partnership.

“With an Integrated Material Services solution tailored to GAMECO’s needs, Satair is able to secure higher spare parts availability, optimise stock inventory and logistic supply management to enhance GAMECO’s daily operations.

“IMS is committed to reducing and stabilising GAMECO’s total cost of ownership.
