Paris 17th June 2013: AJW Technique, the new component MRO in Montréal, reaches another ground-breaking milestone in the evolutionary growth of its world class facility. Just seven months after acquisition AJW Technique has achieved full TCCA/FAA and EASA certification enabling the facility to fulfil the repair and overhaul requirements for 80% of ATA chapters. To complement this achievement AJW Technique has also been awarded TCCA Design Authorised Organisation (DAO) status. This will allow the facility to develop its own part-specific repair schemes in order to maximise customer satisfaction, further underpinning its commitment to lower direct maintenance costs (DMC’s) and improve quality.
After a thorough TCCA audit all Avionic, Hydraulic, Pneumatic, Fuel and Instrument cells have been granted certified status. Unit repairs have already commenced for a variety of customers as AJW Technique continues to ramp up to peak flow on all product lines over the coming months. Engineering & Quality Manager, Allan Pennycuick stated: “We have worked very hard to ensure that the strictest standards of excellence have been adhered to throughout every stage of this facility start-up. Quality takes absolute priority here at AJW Technique and due to focused management and team commitment we have not missed a single deadline within the aggressive time frames set from day one. As we share our services with the global marketplace they can be confident that the AJW seal of approval really does mean best-in-class.”
AJW Technique’s safety equipment cell was the last to come online after meticulous organisation enabled it to conform to the Company’s 6S philosophy. With direct support from the OEM a bespoke 5,000 sq.ft area has been integrated into the Montreal facility and work is now underway on the first customer inflatables. AJW Technique has the ability to perform work on slides and rafts for a variety of aircraft types, including wide body, narrow body and regional aircraft. Because of the organisations prime location, state of-the-art infrastructure, access to pooled inventory, and its team of highly skilled engineers it is well placed to offer the most competitive service anywhere in the industry.
AJW technique is looking to strengthen its position as a global MRO with work already underway to gain regional certification for Russia, Brazil, Indonesia, Thailand and China which when awarded will suitably complement the brand’s worldwide governance.
