A J Walter Aviation Substantially Increases Investment in Miami Base, Expanding Onshore Inventory

Dallas, 3rd April, 2012: A J Walter Aviation, the leading independent aircraft spares support specialist, continues to ramp up its investment in the Americas with a substantial increase in service-ready Boeing and Airbus component inventory held onshore in North America at its facilities in Miami and Los Angeles. This inventory is supported by extensive replenishment from other global AJW inventory hubs and has initially been identified separately as A J Walter Aviation Inc on the Inventory Locator Service (ILS) system.

This decision reflects the Company’s ongoing commitment to build-up onshore inventory levels at its Miami base and other developing hubs across North America with over US$50m worth of parts now allocated to support AJW's growing PBH/Power-By-the-Hour, pooling, leasing, AOG and regular services in the region. The investment has been essential since AJW has seen its business double year-on-year for the past three years as more airlines and MROs choose the Company to provide flexible and innovative solutions tailored to their operational requirements.

Angela Garber, Regional VP Sales North America, comments “This substantial increase in stock held with us in Miami supports the growing number of contracts we are winning in the Americas. AJW’s continued investment in the region reinforces the Company’s commitment to expansion of integrated aviation support services across the Americas.”

AJW is based in London, Dubai, Singapore and Miami with further inventory hubs across Europe and North America. The Company now also offers extensive engine management, sale, lease and parts supply services as well as flexible integrated consumables services.
