Satair and GAMECO Extend Long-Term Airbus Managed Inventory Deal

Guangzhou Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Co. (GAMECO) has signed a contract with Satair extending its long-term agreement for the Airbus Managed Inventory service.

The agreement extends the contract for a multi-year period to secure long-term flexibility and reliability to GAMECO’s inventory management.

Five years ago, GAMECO became the first customer in China for Satair’s AMI solution which supports aviation customers in reducing their inventory holding costs for high-usage and non-repairable Airbus proprietary parts.

“Since 2016, the AMI service has contributed to a reduction of AOG order rate, increase of the material availability and planning accuracy at GAMECO,” said Andy Lee, Managing Director, Satair China.

AMI is a fee-based service offering that automatically replenishes customers’ frequently consumed inventories of low-value, non-repairable parts at their facilities. This is done through monitoring of consumption through messages which generate orders for replacement parts electronically and refill the stock according to agreed inventory levels. The bigger the turnover of parts, the lower the service fee, and the scope of part numbers managed can be in the hundreds or thousands.

With AMI, GAMECO supports more than 350 Airbus aircraft operating in China consisting primarily of the Airbus A320 family, A330 and A380 for which all the part numbers scoped in the AMI solution are exclusively procured and managed by Satair.

“We are very pleased that GAMECO continues to entrust Satair with managing its expendable procurement. “The past five years of service testify to the great benefits GAMECO has recognised in Satair’s AMI solution including a successful reduction of priority orders,” said Bart Reijnen, CEO, Satair.

“At GAMECO, we continue to see the positive effects Satair’s AMI solution has on our operations, and we look forward to building on our fruitful relationship in the years to come,” said Norbert Marx, CEO, GAMECO.
