AAF Spares, the joint venture business between Avtrade and AFI/KLM E&M, have relocated to a new building. Moving from a 15,000 ft² building to a new state-of-the-art 50,000 ft ² warehousing facility will provide access to an inventory valued at US$760 million and will further improve and expand support to the North and South American markets.
The new facility in Doral, only eight miles from Miami International, will allow a significant increase of inventory to be stocked locally. This will optimise the speed of delivery for AOG and urgent requirements, and lead to significant cost reductions for customers.
With two strong parent companies already well established in the spares trading and MRO markets, AAF Spares will continue to strengthen and grow, acquiring more aircraft for teardown and increasing stock to better suit the demands of the world’s airlines. The increase of locally held components across a wide range of aircraft types, including Boeing, Airbus and Embraer, will assist in all aspects of the customer supply chain and will complement services such as repair management, logistic solutions, customer surplus management and other new support initiatives currently in development.
