Joramco and VD Gulf sign MRO framework agreement

Posted 15 June 2021 · Add Comment

An East-West framework agreement signed at MRO Middle East between two leading independent organisations may be a taste of things to come in the region’s MRO community.

Amman-based Joramco and VD Gulf (UAE) of Sharjah signed the MRO cooperation agreement on the opening morning of the two-day live show, which opened today in Dubai.
Under the agreement, both independent MROs aim to expand their existing capabilities, capacity and optimise their synergies for a one-stop-shop upscaled customer experience, in addition to encouraging and promoting sustainable development for both organisations.
Joramco chief executive Jeff Wilkinson said: “We are excited to work hand in hand with VD Gulf to extend our support and commitment to our valued customers across the globe.”
Both organisations are “trusted MRO companies”, he added. By adapting to customers’ needs through this agreement, they point the way to “the future of the MRO industry in the region”.
Mikhail Khoroshaev, Executive President VDT and Accountable Manager VD Gulf, said: “As we enter a new era following the Covid-19 pandemic, it is prudent that MROs across the globe endeavour to work jointly, as witnessed in other industries. With their complementary resources, such cooperation will open new frontiers globally for the two MROs.”
Wilkinson said the new partnership is an ‘East-meets-West’ scenario, given the very different heritage of Joramco and VD Gulf. “It’s a win-win,” he said. VD Gulf’s eastern background has left them with “skills we don’t have, and we have skills they don’t have. We can complement each other.”
Both organisations are EASA-approved; Joramco is FAA-approved while VD Gulf holds approvals from several eastern European aviation authorities.
Wilkinson said the market “is big enough for both of us; we see opportunities in cooperation. I’m excited about this.”
