Aviall, Michelin create global collaboration agreement

Aviall and Michelin have reported plans to create a collaboration agreement, aligning with Aviall´s global distribution footprint and Michelin´s aircraft tire business, the companies said.

The initiative is expected to result in improved logistics and supply chain models, which will improve service to FBOs, MROs and fleet operators around the globe.

Aviall operates as a wholly owned subsidiary of Boeing Company, supporting both commercial and defense business units within Boeing and providing aftermarket supply-chain management services for the aerospace and defense industries.

Michelin, a tire company, is headquartered in Clermont-Ferrand, France, and operating 68 production facilities in 17 countries that produced 184 million tires in 2015.
