Boeing and Guangzhou Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Co. (GAMECO) have signed a five-year Integrated Materials Management (IMM) programme contract. The agreement marks the first time Boeing will provide a comprehensive materials-management solution in mainland China.
Boeing’s new five-year programme will provide demand planning, on-site personnel, and logistics services to support GAMECO’s operations to optimise materials purchase and inventory costs and also improve production service levels. This contract further expands the partnership between Boeing and GAMECO, who have worked together on passenger-to-freighter conversions for standard and wide-body aircraft, including the 737-800 Boeing Converted-Freighter (BCF) and 767-300BCF lines as well as 777/737 landing gear overhaul. GAMECO’s performance has helped Boeing improve and expand conversion services to customers worldwide. In addition, the cooperation has helped GAMECO strengthen its maintenance capabilities and achieve strategic priorities.
