AJW Group is a world-leading independent specialist in the supply and repair of airframe and engine spare parts, with almost 4,000 commercial and business aircraft under contract across 117 countries worldwide.
In little over six years, AJW Technique has grown into one of the great success stories of the aviation component maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) sector.
From small beginnings of just seven employees in 2012, AJW Technique’s workforce of highly skilled employees has grown to nearly 200. Based in the aerospace hub of Montréal, AJW Technique’s 160,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility is able to repair 35,000 units a year across nearly 6,000 separate part number lines, covering multiple aircraft platforms including; Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, and Embraer fleets. The team is now regarded as one of the most efficient component MRO providers in the world and were recently finalists at the prestigious Gilles-Demer Awards held in Montréal.
In 2018, AJW Technique invested CAD$10.5 million in tools, inventory, facilities, and training to meet the growing demand for its services. It works directly with leading airline customers to improve component reliability, maximise time on-wing, and reduce direct maintenance costs. Key competencies include; Avionics, Hydraulics, Pneumatics, Fuel Components, Power Generation, Safety Slides, Electromechanical, Galley and Instruments.
A key feature in AJW Technique’s continued growth is their strategic relationships with global Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) business partners, which include; Honeywell, Thales, Rockwell Collins, Safran, Zodiac, and UTC Aerospace.
In fact, their capability has grown so much that some of these OEM’s now look to AJW Technique to take on component repairs they previously undertook themselves.
AJW Technique has long-standing partnerships with local airlines – Air Canada and Air Transat. In 2017 Air Canada extended its slide and inflatable maintenance contract with AJW Technique to include B777 and Air Transat increased the support of its expanded fleet of A330 aircraft.
On a global level, their footprint is enhanced through regional regulatory certification. These include EASA, TCCA, FAA, ANAC (Brazil), DGCA (Indonesia), HKCAD (Hong Kong), CAAS (Singapore), and CAAC (China) – the last of which is helping drive growth in the expanding Asian market.
