These warehouse and distribution centers have been launched in support of Parker Aerospace's global pooling initiative to increase support for customers operating aircraft anywhere on the planet. This effort is in direct response to surveying the needs and desires of airline customers over the past four years. These centers, in combination with Parker's new around-the-clock Customer Response Center (CRC), allow customers to access a Parker employee at any point of the day, from anywhere in the world, troubleshoot an issue, and receive the needed part often within hours.

"Delivering a premier customer experience is a priority to Parker. Having invested tens of millions in assets stationed globally, offering 24/7 accessibility to Parker team members, and stocking more than 2,000 in parts throughout our five locations, we are committed to offering the best experience to our customers," says Carl Kubat, CSO senior director of logistics services.

Customers will benefit from an extensive inventory of Parker Aerospace products for Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, COMAC, Embraer, and other platforms. These regional inventory pools make it possible for customers to receive parts faster, rather than waiting days or weeks, since parts shipped internationally often face delays clearing customs. Processing orders centrally from the CRC, shipments are dispatched from the pooling centers and are often delivered in less than four hours.

"These developments have been positively received by our existing customers and have directly and indirectly led to us securing additional commercial business for Parker Aerospace," says Austin Major, group vice president of customer support. "We are pleased to be globally positioned with quick and responsive service that resolves our customer's challenges. As a result, airlines and aircraft operators are able to improve the experience for their customers and their bottom lines."
