AAR Corporation has won a supply chain management contract valued at over $909 million from the US Air Force to execute the Landing Gear Performance-Based Logistics One programme. The period of performance extends through 2032.
AAR will provide total supply chain management including purchasing, remanufacturing, distribution and inventory control to support all Air Force depot and field-level, foreign military sales, other services, and contractor requisitions received for all C-130, KC-135 and E-3 landing gear parts. Repair work will be done at AAR’s landing gear services facility in Miami and inventory supply and management will be handled via AAR offices and warehouses in Wood Dale, IL, and Ogden, UT.
“This contract is another great example of how AAR can apply commercial MRO and supply chain best practices to help the government increase efficiencies and decrease costs,” said David P. Storch, Chairman, President & CEO at AAR Corp. “In this time of reduced budgets, government can rely on a trusted partner like AAR that has been providing aviation aftermarket services for more than 60 years.”
