A J Walter Aviation buys the component repair business of Aveos

A J Walter Aviation has completed its purchase of the component repair business of Aveos Fleet Performance. The Montréal facility will house AJW Technique and become the organisation’s new global headquarters for the repair and overhaul of aircraft components.

AJW has enlisted strong support from the Government of Québec and the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAMAW) to formulate a new business initiative to support a sustainable and substantial MRO business. As AJW Technique grows to offer full supply chain component repair management, it will reduce turnaround times and contribute further to the organisation’s pledge to deliver cost savings for customers.

Once the transition is completed, AJW Technique will provide many new jobs over the long-term and build upon the local aviation heritage through partnership with the highly skilled Canadian workforce.

Christopher Whiteside, President, A J Walter Aviation, says: “Our dynamic edge will separate us from the competition at every strategic level. Our customers already demand competitive service levels with cost guarantees and we intend to raise the bar even further within the industry. Over the next few months we will rebuild workshop capabilities and ramp up the services that will form the core of our programme.

“Getting to this stage has been a challenging experience over many weeks and AJW would like to express our sincere thanks to everyone involved. We have ambitious plans for the future and are eager to share the pioneering spirit that has stood us in good stead for the past 80 years in aviation with the people of Québec.”
