VD Gulf, a leading independent maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) service provider in the Middle East, has signed a supply agreement with Satair, an Airbus services company and world leader in the commercial aerospace aftermarket.
The signing took place in Sharjah by Mikhail Khoroshaev, Director General, VD Gulf and Terry Stone, Head of Sales & Support EMEA, Satair.
Mikhail Khoroshaev said: “We are pleased to strengthen our existing partnership with Satair to improve our support towards customers. This agreement will help us to increase parts availability and improve our supply chain performance.“
The agreement, which covers Satair’s portfolio of products and services, will increase regional availability and will include set contracted pricing for various aircraft parts and hardware. Satair will utilize its regional footprint to support the customer on-site via its Dubai warehouse with right-on-time spares availability. VD Gulf will receive fixed pricing on a yearly base to support financial planning for upcoming material requirements.
Terry Stone added: “We are very excited to strengthen our relationship with VD Gulf and to extend our support and commitment in the Middle East region. Utilizing our Dubai warehouse, this supply agreement will enable an improved cost control and a maximized spares availability for our customer.”
The signing marks an intensified partnership between VD Gulf and Satair, a collaboration that started more than five years ago and that has been a very successful journey for both.
This successful collaboration between both companies once again shows that Satair as a true global aftermarket integrator is a strong partner with high commitment as well as flexibility to adapt to customers’ needs.
