AJW Group, a market leader in the global management of aircraft spares, has signed an agreement with Aero Contractors Limited to assist in the restructuring and upgrading of the airline’s Maintenance Repair and Overhaul (MRO) support services.
The agreement was signed on Thursday in Lagos by Mr Christopher Whiteside, President of AJW Group and Capt. Ado Sanusi, Managing Director of Aero Contractors.
According to the agreement, the AJW Group will be supporting Aero Contractors with the upgrade of its MRO services to C check capabilities for Boeing 737 Classic and XXX aircraft.
Whiteside said: “Our focus on quality is instilled in everything we do, and our decision to work with Aero Contractors is testament to that.
“AJW Group is highly regarded for its expertise and excellence across a broad range of MRO services, including repairs and inventory management and we look forward to working in partnership with Aero Contractors going forward.”
He said the group would also be focusing on the management of Aero Contractors’ assets to deliver an effective return on investment, disposal of Aero Contractors’ PW105 engines and to provide support with engine shop visit management.
According to him, AJW Capital, the group’s principal investing division responsible for the purchase, sale and lease of large aviation-related capital assets, will facilitate the acquisition of two new Bombardier Q400 aircraft for Aero Contractors.
On his part, Sanusi said the enhancement of its MRO capabilities would ensure that maintenance was carried out to a very high standard, thus providing added quality assurance to its customers.
Sanusi said in addition to its own fleet, Aero Contractors would be able to extend these services to third party operators both in-country and within region.
“We are very excited to work with AJW Group on this project and feel that it will have a marked effect on our operations going forward.
“Having been in the business for 58 years, I am confident we have found the right partner to work with,” he said.
