Bombardier today announced it is establishing a spare parts depot in Japan to provide Bombardier business and regional aircraft customers with comprehensive spare parts support. The new facility, scheduled to open in 2007, will be strategically located near Narita International Airport.
The depot will offer a full spectrum of critical spare parts for the region's increasing number of Bombardier aircraft customers. Bombardier, which already has an established parts distribution network in Asia-Pacific, will also continue to operate depots in Sydney, Singapore and Beijing.
"We continue to invest in our customer support operations globally to ensure our operators can benefit from ready access to needed parts," said Udo Rieder, Vice President, Parts Logistics and Services, Bombardier Aerospace. “Our objective is to stock the most critical parts and deliver them to customers as fast as possible,” he added.
Through its expanding parts distribution network, Bombardier continues to ensure that operators obtain competitively priced parts in the right place at the right time. The international network currently consists of four depots and two super warehouses, featuring a world-class inventory management system, in Chicago, United States, and Frankfurt, Germany. A new spare parts depot was opened in Dubai in 2006 and Bombardier will also be opening a parts depot in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in 2007. Both of these will be servicing Bombardier business and regional aircraft customers.
