Boeing Company subsidiary Aviall and Michelin have announced plans to create a global strategic collaboration agreement. According to Michelin, the new agreement will align its aircraft tyre business with Aviall’s global distribution footprint and result in improved logistics and supply chain models. The tyre maker anticipates improved service to FBOs (field-base operators), MROs (maintenance, repair and operations) and fleet operators around the globe.

Commenting on the agreement, Frank Moreau, president of Michelin Aircraft Tire, said: “We have always been a partner with Aviall, but this strategic initiative will allow us to improve our efficiencies in getting our tyres to the market and growing our business.”

Eric Strafel, president and chief executive officer of Aviall, added: “This strategic collaboration will aid our efforts of expanding our market reach through key alliances. We are very pleased to continue and grow our long-standing relationship with Michelin to better serve our customers.”

Aviall is the world’s largest provider of new aviation parts and related aftermarket services. The company markets and distributes products for more than 240 manufacturers and offers approximately 2 million catalogue items from 40 customer service centres in North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific. Aviall also provides maintenance for aviation batteries, wheels and brakes, as well as hose assembly, kitting and paint-mixing services.
