BAE Systems and Saywell Int’l this month complete 10 years of continued spares support for the BAe 748 twin turboprop transport airliner. In September 2001, BAE Systems appointed Saywell to be their sole distributor of spares for the aircraft. Saywell’s own inventory of spares at its Worthing, Sussex headquarters, supported by their Miami office/warehouse, Vancouver and Singapore regional offices for the South American, North American and Asian markets respectively, was boosted at the time by the transfer of a significant spares stock previously held by BAE Systems.
Since that time, Saywell has ensured the efficient and timely supply of spares to BAe 748 customers worldwide in an operation that is closely monitored by BAE Systems to ensure high standards of service. During the ten-year period more than 30,000 BAe 748 spares transactions have been made by Saywell, worth in excess of $40 million.
