Leading global aerospace supply chain provider, Pattonair, signed a global general terms of agreement (GTA) with Safran yesterday at the Paris Air Show in one of the first contracts of its kind placed by the Group with a distributor.
The umbrella agreement enables Pattonair to service multiple divisions and comes on the back of a series of new awards by several Safran companies, including Safran Nacelles, Safran Transmission Systems and Safran Ventilation Systems.
The GTA was signed by Olivier Horaist, Safran VP for Production and Purchasing, and Wayne Hollinshead, CEO of Pattonair.
Wayne Hollinshead said: “These awards are testament to the world class service Pattonair prides itself on delivering and reflect our strategic role supporting the development of Safran’s businesses. They are significant too in expanding Pattonair’s presence in the French and European aerospace sectors”.
Pattonair had built a successful relationship over a decade with Safran Helicopter Engines (SHE) and in 2016 earned SHE Gold Supplier status for its innovation, quality and service, paving the way for subsequent contracts with other Safran companies.
Pattonair serves a 2,000-plus blue chip customer base spanning engine, airframe and systems customers, including Rolls-Royce, GE, Pratt & Whitney, Airbus, MROs and the Aftermarket, from its global network of dedicated facilities.
