Aviall to distribute spares for GE CF34-3 engines
GE Aviation has signed an exclusive distributor agreement with Aviall Services covering spare parts for GE CF34-3 aircraft engines for the remaining life of the engine.
Under the agreement, Aviall will become responsible for forecasting, ordering, and delivering all genuine Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) replacement parts that are unique to CF34-3 engines and will assume responsibility for documentation management, worldwide inventory deployment, warehousing, and product distribution.
GE will continue to provide all CF34-3 life limited parts (LLPs) and will retain technical responsibility for these engines. Aviall will also utilise its advanced technologies to support CF34-3 spare part sales analysis, line item forecasting, production planning, and sales intelligence systems as well as end-customer requirement planning, advance provisioning, and supply-chain administrative needs.
"For the last three years, Aviall has demonstrated its excellence in customer service as the exclusive distributor of unique spare parts for GE's CF6-50 and CF6-80A engine lines," said Tom Gentile, vice-president and general manager of GE Aviation's Services organisation. "Based on the success of this relationship, we are confident our CF34-3 customers will receive the same high quality level of access and support for their OEM spare parts."
CF34-3 engines are prevalent in the regional market on Bombardier CRJ100/200 regional jets.
