PARIS, FRANCE – Air France Industries increased its shareholding in Aero Maintenance Group (AMG) up to 81.39 percent. This component support specialist is a market leader in the United States. He has been a long-standing partner with Air France Industries and KLM Engineering & Maintenance (AFI KLM E&M) maintenance operations.
By taking majority control of the US company, AFI KLM E&M is boosting its ability to operate from AMG's strategic platforms in Miami, FL; Atlanta, GA, and Dallas, TX.
