AAR adds Woodward, Inc. (66503) distribution support under Supplier Capability Contract with DLA Aviation

Wood Dale, Illinois - AAR CORP. (NYSE: AIR), a leading provider of aviation services to commercial and government operators, MROs, and OEMs, has added distribution support of select Woodward, Inc. (Woodward) parts under its Supplier Capability Contract with DLA Aviation.

Under this multiple year agreement, AAR will supply DLA with spare parts from Woodward's fuel control product family to which AAR holds an exclusive distribution agreement with Woodward as the single source of supply to the government for items sole source to Woodward in support of various military aircraft platforms. AAR will provide comprehensive and integrated supply chain management support and perform associated supply chain management functions to maximize the availability of parts to DLA. The relationship reduces supply volatility through improved material availability.

In 2022, AAR was the first non-OEM to be awarded the 20-year base Supplier Capabilities Contract with the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), establishing a strategic relationship to provide total global supply chain support to the DOD and to U.S. allies.

"AAR is proud to grow our strategic partnership with the DLA under our Supplier Capabilities Contract," said Frank Landrio, AAR's SVP of Distribution. "Our new Woodward agreement will enhance the level of support we provide the U.S. government and help promote increased warfighter readiness."
