Boeing subsidiary Aviall, Inc. is to supply forecasting services, technology, training and aviation material for distribution in the Russian aviation market.
The distribution agreement was signed with Moscow's Aviation Service Company Aviation Equipment, a subsidiary of Concern of Aviation Equipment, a State Corporation Russian Technologies company.
Aviall said the agreement becomes effective in the fourth quarter of this year.
"We are very pleased and proud to announce this agreement with the services unit of Concern of Aviation Equipment to expand our services into Russia," said Dan Komnenovich, president and chief executive officer of Aviall.
"We believe this will enhance quality and efficiency for Russian aviation operators and we look forward to helping support customers in this important market."
The new agreement will give customers access to state-of-the-art information technology infrastructure, allowing them to link with Russian Technologies in a single IT system," Aviall said. The linkage will help airlines increase their aircraft utilization, reduce or avoid airplane-on-ground situations and reduce operational costs.
"Cooperation with one of the global aerospace leaders, in the creation of a distribution system and maintenance, repair and overhaul infrastructure will allow us to apply modern technologies and know-how in material management, production and component repair for various aircraft types," said Andrey Rybin, general director of CAE.
"We will leverage best management practices, including lean production methodology, which are successfully applied by Boeing."
Boeing and Russian Technologies helped facilitate the agreement. The companies have worked together on a variety of aviation-related projects since 2007 when Russian Technologies was formed to assist Russian manufacturers in developing and producing high-technology industrial products in domestic and international markets.
This agreement marks the latest step of Russian Technologies' long-term plan to offer world-class distribution, integrated maintenance, repair, overhaul services, materials management and local production of aviation parts and components.
Aviall Services, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Boeing Co. It describes itself as a leading solutions provider of aftermarket supply-chain management services for the aerospace and defense industries.
Aviall Services has headquarters in Dallas.
The companies said the agreement was signed earlier this month at the Moscow Air Show.
