One of Europe’s largest MRO (Maintenance and Repair Organisations) services providers FL Technics has signed a contract with B&H Worldwide to manage its aircraft parts storage in Germany. The two companies have had a long-term commercial relationship in both the UK and Singapore but this is the first time they have worked together in mainland Europe.
Effective immediately, B&H Worldwide will utilise its Frankfurt warehouse facility to store a range of aerospace consumables, engine spare parts, rotables and Dangerous Goods for FL Technics to ensure they can be efficiently distributed to customers across the European Union.
FL Technics is a global provider of aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhaul services, operating in North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific, ranging from base maintenance solutions and the largest independent line maintenance network to aviation assets trading and management services as well as specialized shops for production, engine repairs, and wheels and brakes maintenance operations.
All warehousing will be undertaken adhering to strict operating procedures, safety protocols and administrative controls and will be managed using FirstTrac, B&H’s unique, in-house developed aerospace software solution.
“Europe has always been a major market for B&H Worldwide and it’s a testament to the scope of our international capabilities that FL Technics has chosen to trust us with its aircraft parts storage across the EU,” says Jakub Ptacnik, B&H’s Business Development Manager for Eastern Europe.
In addition to providing parts warehousing services, FL Technics has an option to take up freight management, AOG and other specialist services which B&H Worldwide can provide. Mildaras Masilionis, Head of Logistics and Storage Department at FL Technics, emphasized the importance of a long-term trusted partnership between the organizations:
“In the aviation industry the sustainable and trusted partnerships are crucial for growth, thus I am glad we excelled in the cooperation with B&H Worldwide as both companies will leverage the synergies within our global operations of logistics and MRO businesses ”, he added.
