NEW YORK, Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Aviation Week's new MRO Links Service, announced today, allows airline and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) buyers to find the newest and most innovative products, services, technologies and suppliers to keep their aircraft flying safely and productively. The service also connects suppliers in the aviation aftermarket industry directly with buyers seeking their products and services. Integrated into Aviation Week's robust print, digital and event portfolio for the aviation MRO community, including Overhaul & Maintenance magazine in print and online, the MRO channel on AviationWeek.com, Turnaround Time Blog, and four annual MRO Conferences and Exhibitions around the globe, MRO Links is a unique reference and research tool, developed based on extensive customer engagement and feedback.
"The aviation MRO industry is competitive, fast-paced, global and growing rapidly," said Greg Hamilton, who leads Aviation Week's MRO business portfolio and is publisher of Aviation Week's Overhaul & Maintenance. "Aviation industry buyers are extremely challenged when it comes to finding the products, services and innovations they need when they need them. MRO Links is a solution that integrates our own product offerings to bring buyers and sellers together and deliver a solid return on investment."
"Overhaul & Maintenance readers want to know about new technologies and product/service innovations," said Lee Ann Tegtmeier, editor-in-chief, Overhaul & Maintenance. "With MRO Links, now they can be more connected to recent advancements in the MRO industry, with the full coverage and in-depth analysis they know they can expect from Aviation Week's experts."
Using MRO Links, customers can search for products, services, technologies and suppliers, select those of interest to view company profiles and advertisements, and elect to receive more information directly from those companies. Advertisers found in Overhaul & Maintenance, on AviationWeek.com, and at MRO events, such as next week's MRO Europe, can sign up to have their ads and names connected to MRO Links, so they will receive leads from the program and be able to showcase press releases, advertisements, videos and more next to the company descriptions provided by Aviation Week's database. The product includes an online portal as well as a special advertising section in Overhaul & Maintenance each month.
MRO Links is organized into 29 product and service categories, such as airframes, avionics, chemicals, cleaning, composites, electrical components, engines, expendables, hydraulics/pneumatics, interiors, IT hardware, landing gear/wheels/breaks, lighting, mechanical components, metal, MRO services, paints/coatings, software, test equipment, training, windows/transparencies, and more.
