Kalitta Air is a Michigan-based company that flies cargo to destinations around the world. They have a fleet of 20 Boeing 747’s — employ about 350 STS Contractors — and are in the process of building an 80,000 square-foot airplane hangar in Oscoda Township, Michigan. The project will create new jobs and is a $9.7 million investment.
STS Component Solutions, a division of STS Aviation Group, has entered into an agreement for parts distribution with Air Maintenance Estonia, a leader in aircraft maintenance and repair located in Tallinn, Estonia.
Through this consignment agreement, STS Component Solutions will be responsible for facilitating Air Maintenance Estonia’s reliable list of components utilizing STS Component Solutions’ OEM Distribution Product Lines. A key part of this agreement covers superior availability of airframe spares and inventory in this region and across the globe. The consignment agreement is tailored to Air Maintenance Estonia’s specific requirements and remains flexible as maintenance demands change.
The immense complexity of engine and aircraft component services at STS Component Solutions comprises background processes for sourcing, teardown, disposition, cost, logistics, sales, support and detailed regulatory data management for global engine and airframe parts distribution services. To further streamline operations, STS wanted to move from using disparate systems for accounting and ERP and into a modern solution that would integrate business processes across their division to become more efficient and responsive to their customer needs.
