Maintenance: A global network to take advantage of growth opportunities
Present at five sites in France and the Netherlands (Paris-CDG, Paris-Orly, Paris-Le Bourget, Toulouse and Amsterdam-Schiphol), AFI KLM E&M has, over the past few years, set up a network of subsidiaries around the world, combining notably with various local industry partners, enabling it to capture growth opportunities on expanding markets.
In this way, the group has recently confirmed that it is studying a development project for the maintenance of aircraft equipment in China.
Subsidiaries on markets with high potential
AFI KLM E&M already has subsidiaries and investments in maintenance companies in India, USA, UAE and Morocco, markets with strong growth potential.
In 2011, the Group confirmed its presence in India by investing in the Indian company MAX MRO Services, dedicated to equipment support on the Indian market.
In the United States, AMG, a subsidiary of AFI, specializes in equipment and aerostructure support. Based in Miami, Atlanta and Dallas, AMG is ideally positioned to meet the needs of customers operating commercial or regional fleets in North America, Latin America or the Caribbean. Its combined production capacity at the Miami-based logistics centre offers local equipment support facilities as well as for repairs of composite components on a wide range of commercial and regional aircraft.
In the United Arab Emirates, closer to airlines in the Middle East, AMES, the result of a partnership between AFI KLM E&M and Aircelle (Safran group) has become a key player in the repair and overhaul of engine nacelles. Based in Dubai, it can offer its customers reactive and high-performance maintenance solutions.
In Morocco, Aerotechnic Industries (ATI) specializes in the maintenance of Airbus A320. A 50/50 joint venture between Air France and Royal Air Morocco (RAM), ATI can quickly adapt to customer needs, relying where necessary on the skills of its two parent companies nearby.
