Eaton has appointed AAR as the exclusive distributor for aircraft fluid-distribution products, oil debris-monitoring technology, engine seals and other products for commercial airlines. The new, 10-year agreement goes into effect October 8.
“This new agreement with Eaton expands our relationship from military and defense into the commercial parts market and reinforces AAR’s ability to provide efficient and cost-effective solutions for Eaton’s aftermarket,” said John Holmes, Aviation Services Group vice president – Aviation Supply Chain for AAR. “We are thrilled to deploy AAR’s global supply-chain infrastructure and sales team to support Eaton’s expansive portfolio of products.”
The new agreement includes Eaton’s high-temperature and high-pressure duct joints, static and dynamic engine seals, pressure sensing and control products, and oil debris-monitoring products and systems.
“Eaton’s new agreement with AAR is designed to provide airline customers with around-the-clock access to products they need to support aircraft availability and reliability,” said Lasse Ostergaard, vice president, Aftermarket Division for Eaton’s Aerospace Group. “Our expanded relationship with AAR also increases Eaton’s capability to provide value to our airline customers by optimizing efficiencies in our customer’s Repairs and Spares supply-chain processes.”
