The global aerospace and defense company AAR has earned Boeing Gold Performance Excellence Awards at two of its operating units — Aircraft Component Repair (ACS) in Amsterdam and Defense Systems Logistics (DSL) in Havelock, N.C. — for the fifth straight year.
Boeing issues the awards annually to recognize suppliers that have achieved superior performance for each month of the 12-month reporting period, this year from Oct. 1, 2013, to Sept. 30, 2014.
Of Boeing’s more than 13,000 global suppliers, AAR is among only 119 to earn Gold status this year.
AAR ACS in Amsterdam provides in-house component repairs and manages a network of subcontractors that support airlines in the EMEA region. It’s accredited to work on military aircraft from the F-16 fighter jet and the Chinook CH-47s and Apache AH-64s rotorcraft to 717 and 737NG jets operated by commercial carriers. Customers include various commercial airlines as well as the Netherlands Ministry of Defense’s Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNLAF).
AAR DSL provides supply chain services to U.S. military and government customers and their allies. It was recognized for supply chain management in support of Boeing’s Harrier Integrated Supply Support (HISS) performance-based logistics contract that sustains the AV-8B Harrier aircraft operated by the U.S. Marine Corps in Italy and Spain from Cherry Point, N.C.
