PDQ Airspares Welcomes Sepang Aircraft Engineering to the ConsumableCare Family

PDQ Airspares is enjoying continued growth throughout South East Asia, with Malaysian based company Sepang Aircraft Engineering becoming the latest company to embrace ConsumableCare programs. Hot on the heels of our last release concerning PDQ stock holdings with Bangkok based Northern Aerotech, this latest agreement continues to satisfy fresh demand for PDQ consignment programs within the APAC region.

Sepang Aircraft Engineering, based at Kuala Lumpur International Airport is an Airbus SAS subsidiary company and part of the Airbus Group. The company itself is an EASA approved independent aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul service provider for commercial aircraft, engines and components. Since 2006 they have been fully dedicated to providing support services for all Airbus aircraft within the region.

PDQ's ConsumableCare family has seen steady increase since its inception in 2007. By taking advantage of both a Surplus2Revenue Stock Conversion program, and a Managed Consignment program providing an initial stock plant of 750 consumable & expendable lines, increasing to approximately 2000 over the coming months, we are delighted that SAE have chosen to become part of the Next Generation ConsumableCare family.

To maximise efficiency and profitability for the customer, each ConsumableCare program is tailored to the organisation's unique operational needs. By offering single source supply with guaranteed stock availability, PDQ can assure significant time, financial and logistical benefits, as well as reducing many operational burdens along the way. Warehouse procedures are also streamlined and accounting is simplified with one invoice, from one source, once a month.

The Surplus2Revenue program will also provide SAE with a market-based, financial return on their surplus stock. Revenue generated from sales can be used as credit to support existing operations and replenishment of "live" stock from PDQ, or taken as a monthly payment. Surplus2Revenue will also assist in freeing up warehouse space, with the offer of PDQ assisted stock relocation to any one of our warehouse facilities in the UK and Thailand.

We would like to officially welcome Sepang Aircraft Engineering to the ConsumableCare family.

to provide material support for Cardiff Aviation.

Led by entrepreneur businessman, airline captain and Iron Maiden lead vocalist Bruce Dickinson together with former airline MD Mario Fulgoni, Cardiff Aviation provides a complete range of MRO, ACMI Leasing, AOC and Pilot Training services. It is also currently developing Aircraft Painting and Line Maintenance services.

As well as his music industry career Bruce has been a commercial pilot for 15 years, clocking up over 7,000 hours as a Boeing 757 Captain.

PDQ has recently been enlisted by Cardiff Aviation to assist with the provisioning of parts for its initial support stock holdings. By guaranteeing parts are always available off-the-shelf, the consignment implant and replenishment programme will enable PDQ to ease the logistical burden on Cardiff Aviation's procurement department, by providing a single guaranteed source for the agreed list of high use consumables, whilst ensuring availability at all times with minimal delivery times.

Knowing that the cost of each consumable item will remain the same year-on-year will also help Cardiff Aviation budget more accurately on future maintenance benefits to the benefit of its customers.
