Chemical Care program puts products onsite and available 24/7
COMMERCE, Calif., November 15, 2023 – FDH Aero (“FDH”), a global provider of supply chain solutions for the aerospace and defense industry, announced today a new customer consignment agreement between Aerospheres, an FDH company, and Joramco, an Amman, Jordan-based maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) provider and the engineering arm of Dubai Aerospace Enterprise.
A commemoration signing ceremony took place at Dubai Airshow on Tuesday, Nov. 14. Representatives from Aerospheres and Joramco participated in the ceremony.
Aerospheres has been a trusted partner of Joramco, supplying aviation-related chemicals for many years. This partnership extends with the new Chemical Care agreement. Under this agreement, Aerospheres will consign an agreed inventory to Joramco, allowing them to consume directly from stock. The program offers benefits such as lower inventory holding costs, improved cash flow, reduced freight and purchasing administration expenses, lower scrappage rates, and the peace of mind of having stock on hand at all times.
“Customers see the real benefits that our consignment programs can deliver, and we have been able to make purchasing chemicals much more efficient for them,” said Aerospheres Group President Paul Thompson. “We now have many large MROs and airlines participating in consignment programs, across the globe, and we’re thrilled to now include Joramco as a consignment customer.”
Commenting on this agreement, Chief Executive Officer of Joramco, Fraser Currie, said, “Here at Joramco, we are proud in our ability to lead the way and set new industry standards. We are excited to announce that we have recently signed a new consignment program that will elevate our supply chain model. This innovative step will not only help us reduce inventory hold costs, but it will also ensure the uninterrupted availability of materials to service our valued customers. As we strive to provide exceptional service, this initiative is crucial in maintaining our commitment to excellence.”
