AIME/MRO: Aeropair announces service partnership agreements at AIME/MRO Middle East

Posted 23 January 2013 · Add Comment

Aeropair has officially announced during the Aircraft Interiors Middle East & MRO Middle East shows in Dubai that it has entered into two partnerships with British companies to bring additional services to its Middle East facility.

Following the opening of its EASA Part21G & 145 manufacturing and repair facility in Dubai in October 2012, Aeropair will now be able to support oxygen bottle and fire extinguisher maintenance having signed an agreement to become the service partner for UK-based Avia Technique in the Middle East.

Avia Technique repairs and overhauls fire extinguishers, hydraulic filters, emergency locating transmitters, fuel equipment and aircraft oxygen equipement. The company also designs and manufactures the Avia Pulse range of therapeatic and emergency oxygen cyliders, which are in already service in the Middle East with Fly Dubai and soon to be in service with an undisclosed Middle East airline.

Ian Campbell, managing director, Avia Technique, said: “This service partnership agreement with Aeropair gives us the opportunity to offer local repair to the products that we offer, particularly hazardous goods like oxygen bottles and fire extinguishers, which are expensive to ship.

“There appears to be a lack of facilities in the region that do what we are setting out today," he said.

As part of the agreement, Aeropair will be carrying out this repair and overhaul of oxgen bottles and fire extinguishers, following training carried out by Avia Technique.

“We have also signed an agreement with Aerokem to stock and distribute their range of consumable products," announced Stephen Findlay, managing director of Aeropair, during AIME/MRO Middle East.

UK-based Aerokem specialises in sourcing and developing chemical solutions to the aerospace industry, including adhesives and tapes, sealants, lubricants & greases, cleaners & solvents and oils & hydraulic fuels. 

Mike Lines, managing director, Aerokem, said: “We have had an awful lot of interest from the region, and that is why we need to have the products based out here.

This agreement means that Aerokem's customers in the region will benefit from the time and money that will be saved by having supplies stocked in and distributed from Dubai, rather than the UK. “It’s just the way the aerospace industry works, when they want it they want it now," said Lines.

"It’s a good opportunity for us. We’ve had a very good reception to this announcement.

"We’re trying to make contact with as many of the local companies as we can, so that we can purchase in the Middle East as well, rather than import it in," he added.
