The agreement covers Arkwin’s broad line of engine actuation and commercial aviation products for the commercial aviation aftermarket and is effective as of 1 October.
“We are excited to partner with AAR as our new aftermarket partner for our commercial aviation business,” said Kristian Norheim, Arkwin vice president of sales and marketing. “We are confident that Arkwin’s realignment of aftermarket support capabilities using AAR will allow Arkwin to more effectively support our global customer base.”
“We are thrilled to add Arkwin’s products to our portfolio and look forward to working with its team to provide market intelligence and grow its footprint,” said Eric Young, AAR senior vice president of OEM Solutions. “This agreement provides meaningful growth to AAR’s OEM Solutions business and the CFM56, CF34, and CF6 products complement our existing engine offering.”
