Goodrich Selects Aaxico, Aviall as Aftermarket Distributors

Goodrich Corp. has awarded distributor agreements to Aaxico and Aviall covering the commercial, regional, business and general aviation markets for its sensors and integrated systems (SIS) business. The five-year awards, which became effective January 1, 2011, are expected to result in reduced lead times and enhanced service for SIS aftermarket customers.

Under the agreements, Aviall will be the distributor for Goodrich de-icing products; AAXICO will be the distributor for all other SIS products including air data products and systems, temperature sensors, potable water and specialty heater products, along with fuel quantity measurement and management systems. Rich Feely, commercial aftermarket business segment director, sensors and integrated systems said, "By streamlining our distributor network, we will improve both the speed and ease of doing business with Goodrich. Our customers will benefit through increased parts availability, improved delivery times, and a simplified interface with us and our lean distributor team."

Terry Vieira, president, Aaxico, said, "Aaxico has been a Goodrich distributor for more than 25 years. We are delighted to leverage our unique capabilities, including worldwide parts stocking, to a broader portfolio of SIS products."

"This new agreement shows the strong relationship that has developed over the years between Goodrich and Aviall," Dan Komnenovich, president and CEO of Aviall Inc., said. "We are confident that Aviall's team of experienced professionals and global network of sales and stocking locations will bring value to each customer who uses these essential Goodrich de-icing products in their daily operations."

Aaxico is an international leader in commercial aviation distribution, and has been a stocking distributor to commercial and regional airlines for more than 59 years.

Aviall Services Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company, is a leading solutions provider of aftermarket supply-chain management services for the aerospace, defense and marine industries. Goodrich Corp.,a Fortune 500 company, is a global supplier of systems and services to aerospace, defense and homeland security markets.
