Boeing expands offering of serviceable parts through agreement with GA Telesis
Boeing has signed an agreement with GA Telesis to expand Boeing’s aftermarket parts portfolio to include serviceable commercial airplane parts. Boeing is now making new surplus, repairable and overhauled parts available to customers through a new Marketplace section of the Boeing PART (Part Analysis and Requirements Tracking) Page. The Boeing PART Page, available to customers, is one of the most frequented e-commerce sites in the aerospace industry. More than 43,000 users log over 40,000 interactions on the Boeing PART Page every day. “At Boeing, we want to be the one place our customers can come for almost any kind of airplane part they need – whether new or serviceable,” said Tim Copes, vice president of Material Services, the parts business within Boeing Commercial Aviation Services. “Boeing is actively working to expand its offering of serviceable parts to include parts for non-Boeing airplanes.” Serviceable parts are a fast-growing segment of the aviation parts market, outpacing new part sales. The serviceable parts market is valued at more than $3bn annually.
