S7 Technics, a leading independent MRO in Russia and the CIS territories, has signed a consignment stock agreement with major aviation spares and solutions provider Satair. The deal was signed at the MRO Russia & CIS 2020 forum.
The multi-year deal covers the exclusive distribution of more than 350 part numbers from a range of suppliers and is the first of its kind directly linking Satair with customers in Russia and the CIS region. Furthermore, the agreement facilitates the possibility of growing the cooperation between S7 Technics and Satair even further over the coming years.
The new strategic partnership between the two companies will significantly expand the scope of S7 Technics’ maintenance capabilities, by increasing its overall productivity and allowing for a more efficient release of aircraft from maintenance checks.
S7 Technics operates three heavy maintenance bases located at Moscow (DME), Novosibirsk (OVB) and Mineralnye Vody (MRV) airports and also has several line maintenance stations across Russia. The company holds EASA-145, EASA-147 and EASA-21G&J approvals as well as Bermudan, Russian and certification for some other countries.
The company currently offers its services to Russia’s S7 Airlines, Aeroflot Group carriers and UTair, as well as to airlines from Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, with an annual provision of more than 100 heavy maintenance checks and more than 1,000 light maintenance procedures.
“The agreement embodies an important milestone in customising services towards the customers and strengthening our presence in the region,“ said Terry Stone, Satair’s managing director and head of sales and support in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Alexey Petin, the head of strategic procurement at S7 Technics, adds: “This agreement represents a key effort in advancing S7 Technics’ competitive positioning and the further servicing of our customers’ needs in the region. We are thrilled to grow our relationship with Satair.”
