This agreement will allow both parties to widen their customer base and develop closer ties for future collaboration. ASC will take a variety of Hamilton Sundstrand and Pratt & Whitney APU's on consignment at their main warehouse at London-Gatwick, to cover the A320, B747, B737, Bombardier Dash 8 and Embraer aircraft platforms. ASC will also look to extend ATC Aerospace's accessible market and distribute throughout ASC's extensive customer base.

US-based supply chain specialist ATC Aerospace provides customised supply chain management to OEMs, system integrators, and prime contractors from its headquarters in Pompano, Florida.  ATC offers a multitude of services including asset management, inventory optimisation, warehousing, asset leasing, and purchasing and vendor management.

Positioning our key assets within this market region will greatly enhance the accessibility to our customers. We see great value in utilising ASC's network and logistical strength that will provide a platform for growth for both partners."

ASC Director Nick Filce explains: "ASC is delighted to complete this APU consignment agreement with ATC Aerospace. Our years of experience and strong global presence  makes ASC a perfect consignment partner for major stockists and manufacturers who are looking for a route to market. Together with our existing APU stock, ASC are well positioned to expand our current customer base whilst maintaining the support of our growing portfolio of aircraft under contract. I am sure this will spark the beginning of a valuable relationship with ATC Aerospace and I look forward to future partnership opportunities."
