Honeywell and S&K Logistics Services – S&KLS have entered into a new service agreement that will reduce aircraft downtime and cut costs for Foreign Military Sales – FMS customers worldwide.

The work we do is mission critical. Joining forces with a global company like Honeywell gives us the infrastructure and reach needed to ensure we are able to provide local and efficient services to our customers – said at Spazio-News Magazine John Sims, president of S&K Logistics Services -. FMS users can get their required parts faster and have the reassurance of Honeywell-backed original equipment manufacturer support on all parts. This reduces aircraft downtime and costs, allowing operators to keep the focus on the mission.”

The agreement with S&KLS will support Foreign Military Sales customers, with fast, reliable repairs and maintenance for all their Honeywell parts. Downtime is expensive and inconvenient for operators, but necessary to maintain aircraft. Honeywell has maintenance, repair and overhaul – MRO centres all over the world with its extensive network of channel partners. Through this collaboration, operators will benefit from reduced turnaround time and faster access to local MRO services on a global scale.

 “With this agreement, our FMS users in the Middle East and the rest of the world will benefit from Honeywell’s global network of repair and overhaul sites – said Mosab Alkubaisy, director for Defense and Space, Middle East and Africa, at Honeywell Aerospace -. Buying Honeywell’s parts gives customers a one-stop shop for all their military procurement needs. Crucially, all products and parts procured through the collaboration with S&K Logistics Services can be repaired and maintained worldwide, significantly reducing turnaround time and boosting efficiency for customers.”

The five-year servicing agreement will cover all of Honeywell’s defence products & services, including engines, avionics and mechanical components. The agreement will offer direct support to military operators and allow FMS users easy access to expert servicing professionals at the same high standards of safety and reliability that Honeywell applies to its own products.
