LAS VEGAS – October 22, 2019 – StandardAero announced that it will open the company’s first European-based business aviation parts warehouse to support operators and strengthen the company’s parts support in the EMEA region. The warehouse operations will be located in Amsterdam with a goal for full functionality by January of 2020.
The new facility will stock current parts that support Honeywell TFE731, HTF7000, CFE738 engines and Honeywell APU parts. Additional future expansions will include parts to support Lear, Challenger, Global, Gulfstream, Hawker, Falcon and Citation airframes.
On behalf of StandardAero, the company will work in partnership with ASA-100 accredited MNX Global Logistics who will act as a forward stockist. Locating the inventory in Amsterdam allows for easy shipments across Europe and beyond.
