  • UTC Aerospace Systems' global network will provide spare parts and subassembly repair services for 10-years
  • Deal will lower operating costs through a simplified supply chain and improved product performance
CHARLOTTE, N.C., April 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- UTC Aerospace Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX), today announced that it has been selected by GKN Aerospace's Fokker business, to provide an expanded on-site consignment stock support solution at their Schiphol-based facilities over the course of the next decade. The support agreement will help Fokker streamline supply chain operations, increase repair reliability and lower operational cost. 
Under the 10-year agreement, UTC Aerospace Systems' global network will manage the supply chain of UTC electric power systems (EPS) parts, in addition to providing 24/7 technical on-site support (OSS). Transitioning supply chain operations allows GKN Aerospace's Fokker business to focus on core business functions, such as the overhaul and repair of Integrated Drive Generators and power generating related availability services. 

"We are proud of our long-term relationship with GKN Aerospace's Fokker business and look forward to serving its maintenance needs for the next decade," said Ajay Mahajan, Vice President & General Manager, Asset Management & Strategy, UTC Aerospace Systems. "Our OSS program utilizes a deep and extensive knowledge of best practices of supply chain operations. The success of this program is a testament to the confidence our customers have in UTC Aerospace Systems' industry-leading products and services."

"This valuable partnership with UTC Aerospace Systems will certainly be a major step forward for our availability services, on several aircraft platforms, including regionals such as Bombardier and Fokker as well as Boeing and Airbus. This agreement will strengthen our specialized position on repair business, specifically on our IDG repair capability. It assures continued availability of parts and shorter turnaround times for IDG repairs. We are proud to see this close collaboration as an enablement to widen our position as MRO channel partner with UTC Aerospace Systems" - says Mr. Paul Vorstermans, Vice President GKN Aerospace's Fokker Services business.
