Barfield chooses Arabcal to support GSTE product line in the Middle East

Posted 5 June 2019 · Add Comment

Barfield, a subsidiary of Air France KLM Engineering & Maintenance (AFI KLM E&M) in the Americas recently signed an agreement to have Arabcal provide repair and calibration services for a wide range of GSTE products to accommodate its growing customer base in the Middle East.

 

"We are very excited about this partnership agreement as our customers have been expecting us to make it easier for them to have their equipment serviced. Before, they had to send their equipment all the way to the United States at least once a year for calibration or repair service, which was not cost effective. Now, we have a solution that works for us and for our partner Arabcal, a reputable repair facility in the region," said Lew Wingate, Barfield's vice president of GSTE and Distribution. 

Barfield is a provider in Air Data, Turbine Temperature and Fuel Quantity testers. The testers are sold around the world and require regular calibration.

"The signing of this agreement allows us to expand the line of products we support in our state-of-the-art facility in the UAE and other GCC neighboring countries. We comply with globally accepted standards and practices, and working with Barfield only solidify our reputation in the region", saidDavid Robinson, general manager of Arabcal.

Arabcal's facility in the Middle East will repair and calibrate Barfield ground support test equipment.
