Honeywell, S&K Logistics Services Collaborate to Reduce Downtime and Costs for Foreign Military Sales Customers

  • Military operators will have access to expert servicing professionals for all Honeywell defence products and services

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, 17 November 2019 – Honeywell (NYSE: HON) and S&K Logistics Services have entered into a new service agreement that will reduce aircraft downtime and cut costs for Foreign Military Sales customers worldwide. S&K Logistics Services, an industry-leading provider of maintenance, repair and overhaul services, made the collaboration with Honeywell official at a signing ceremony on Day 1 of Dubai Airshow.

The agreement with S&K Logistics Services (SKLS) will support Foreign Military Sales (FMS) customers, with fast, reliable repairs and maintenance for all their Honeywell parts. Downtime is expensive and inconvenient for operators, but necessary to maintain aircraft. Honeywell has maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) centres all over the world with its extensive network of channel partners. Through this collaboration, operators will benefit from reduced turnaround time and faster access to local MRO services on a global scale.

“The work we do is mission critical,” said John Sims, president of S&K Logistics Services. “Joining forces with a global company like Honeywell gives us the infrastructure and reach needed to ensure we are able to provide local and efficient services to our customers. FMS users can get their required parts faster and have the reassurance of Honeywell-backed original equipment manufacturer support on all parts. This reduces aircraft downtime and costs, allowing operators to keep the focus on the mission.”

The three-year servicing agreement will cover all of Honeywell’s defence products and services, including engines, avionics and mechanical components. The agreement between S&K Logistics Services and Honeywell will offer direct support to military operators and allow FMS users easy access to expert servicing professionals at the same high standards of safety and reliability that Honeywell applies to its own products.

“With this agreement, our FMS users in the Middle East and the rest of the world will benefit from Honeywell’s global network of repair and overhaul sites,” said Mosab Alkubaisy, director for Defense and Space, Middle East and Africa, at Honeywell Aerospace. “Buying Honeywell’s parts gives customers a one-stop shop for all their military procurement needs. Crucially, all products and parts procured through the collaboration with S&K Logistics Services can be repaired and maintained worldwide, significantly reducing turnaround time and boosting efficiency for customers.”
