[Nigeria] Aero Contractors partners with UK's AJW on aircraft maintenance
AJW Group, a market leader in the global management of aircraft spares, has signed an agreement with Aero Contractors, the Nigerian-based airline, to assist in the restructuring and upgrading of their MRO support services.
AJW Group will be supporting Aero Contractors with the upgrade of its MRO services to C check capabilities for Boeing 737 Classic aircraft – 300,400 & 500. The enhancement of its MRO capabilities will ensure that maintenance is carried out to a very high standard, thus providing added quality assurance to their customers. In addition to their own fleet, Aero Contractors will be able to extend these services to third party operators both in-country and within region.
Furthermore, AJW Group will also be focusing on the management of Aero Contractors’ assets to deliver an effective return on investment, disposal of Aero Contractors’ PW150 engines and to provide support with engine shop visit management.
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.
Christopher Whiteside, President and CEO of AJW Group, 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.”
Capt. Ado Sanusi, CEO of Aero Contractors, said: “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."
