MTU Maintenance and AAR have signed a contract that secures for MTU the supply of used material for PW2000 engines over the next five years. Within the framework of a consignment and inventory management agreement, AAR will store all PW2000 used parts at MTU’s facility in Hannover, Germany, which will significantly streamline the logistical processes and improve the turnaround time for PW2000 shop visits. The value of the contract amounts to a three-digit million U.S. dollar amount.

The partnership between MTU Maintenance and AAR dates back to 1996, when MTU first contracted AAR for the supply of used materials. MTU Maintenance has specialized in providing its customers cost-effective MRO alternatives to the replacement with new parts, and the integration of used material is one of the numerous options to reduce their shop visit costs. MTUPlus Mature Engines Solutions, for example, allows operators of aging engines to combine MRO alternatives, such as tailored workscoping and material salvation with complementary engine lease or exchange options. Designed on a modular basis, customers are able to combine the required services in a way that is most efficient for them.

“Customers with PW2000 engines have very individual needs, and we at MTU are eager to offer tailored solutions which allow them to operate their fleets longer without the burden of exorbitant MRO expenses,” says Andrea Luebke, Vice President Purchasing MRO at MTU Maintenance. “Thanks to AAR’s vast inventory, we are able to access the required used material much faster and can pass this benefit on to our customers.”

“We are excited to continue our long-time valued partnership with MTU Maintenance,” said Sal Marino, Senior Vice President, Parts Supply, at AAR. “Our large supply of airframe and engine parts with our global network allows us to customize supply chain solutions for MROs, airlines and the leasing community.”
