Barfield to distribute Falgayras components in the US

Barfield, the US bridgehead of AFI KLM E&M’s global MRO network, has announced the signing of a regional distribution agreement with Falgayras, a mechanical, electrical and electronics engineering OEM located at the heart of the aviation cluster around Toulouse in southern France. This is an exclusive multi-year agreement involving a selection of Falgayras products, and in particular windscreen wiper systems (wiper arms, blades and motors) fitted as original equipment to many Bombardier CSeries and Mitsubishi MRJ family aircraft, as well as Airbus Helicopter helicopters.

Christophe Falgayras, Chairman and CEO of Falgayras SAS, said: “Falgayras is proud of this new partnership with Barfield. It is designed to improve the effectiveness of our service by shortening our response times and sharing our North American and European customer portfolios. Our respective customers will therefore be the big winners under this agreement.”

Barfield’s Lew Wingate, Vice President GSTE and Distribution, added:  “We turned to Falgayras due to the high quality of its products, acknowledged by leading aircraft and helicopter manufacturers worldwide. Falgayras components will form a highly complementary fit for the extensive catalogue of solutions distributed by Barfield. This agreement will enable us to better serve our existing customers, and also to reach out to potential new ones, especially operators of CSeries family fleets.”
