AVIAN Signs Exclusive Surplus Spare-Parts Inventory Agreement with Embraer
AVIAN Inventory Management, LLC (“AVIAN”), together with York Aerospace Solutions III (“YAS”) as the sole capital partner, signs an agreement with Embraer for exclusive purchasing, marketing and distribution rights of surplus Embraer commercial and business-jet airplane parts. Designed to promote accessibility and speed to market, AVIAN’s focused distribution center will deliver unparalleled product availability to all aircraft operators and maintenance and repair stations around the world, providing a one-stop, go-to access point.
Established from the ground up specifically to accommodate Embraer’s long-term spare-parts strategy, AVIAN will consolidate all of Embraer’s worldwide surplus spare-part inventory in its new facility in Orlando, FL. Operations and sales are expected to commence in Q1 2022.
In addition to Embraer, AVIAN has physically embedded sales channel partners (SCPs) into its operation to act as the customer-facing entities. DASI, UNICAL Aviation, and Regional Airline Support Group (RASG) have been named from a wide range of interested parties, as each brought extensive market reach, years of product experience and, most importantly, a demonstrated desire to support Embraer customers.
“With this long-term agreement with AVIAN, we will be able to increase our reach and accessibility in parts distribution, at the same time allowing us to increase performance and efficiency with a focus on customer needs,” says Johann Bordais, president and CEO of Embraer Services and Support.
End-users will have access to all AVIAN’s inventory through the regular Embraer sales channels, in addition to each of the three selected SCPs. Operators will continue to be able to check parts availability through Embraer’s channels for ordering spare parts.
Ian Gurekian, CEO of AVIAN Inventory Management, says, "This partnership is an example of Embraer’s ability to adjust its long-term strategy while keeping complete focus on its customers. AVIAN was able to work together with Embraer to design a solution that meets both their financial and operational goals while creating a platform that keeps Embraer close to and integrated with its customer base."
