- MHIRJ and Regional One join forces to improve CRJ Series components availability
Montréal, September 28, 2021 – MHI RJ Aviation Group (MHIRJ) is pleased to announce that it has strengthened its aftermarket portfolio for the CRJ Series through an agreement with Regional One, an aircraft leasing company and worldwide provider of Used Serviceable Material (USM) supporting regional and commercial aircraft operators. Under the agreement, MHIRJ will provide Component Repair and Overall (CR&O), OEM component certification, and distribution of a large number of selected structural parts rendered more readily available through a strategic supply arrangement with Regional One.
“Powered by the extensive inventory of CRJ Series USM Regional One possesses, MHIRJ will expand and diversify the offering of key structural components to its CRJ Series customer base, and further penetrate the rotable material space, while widening the availability of components repaired under the OEM quality and certification standards. This agreement promotes MHIRJ's CR&O business and allows MHIRJ to establish itself as a dependable USM provider, " said Hiro Yamamoto, President and CEO of MHIRJ.
“I am very excited about this collaboration as it unlocks great value for our CRJ customer base,” said Ismail Mokabel, Senior Vice President, Head of Aftermarket. “Not only does it leverage our OEM capabilities and quality system, together with Regional One’s extensive USM inventory, but this also enables us to double the availability and coverage of critical structural parts to our customers while growing our service offering in USM and CR&O. We are confident that facilitating the availability of parts through this agreement will demonstrate a tangible step towards our security of supply strategy in a post-production environment. MHIRJ and Regional One now join forces and bring better quality, optionality, and availability of material to the airlines operating CRJ aircraft."
“Regional One is thrilled to join MHIRJ in providing the CRJ marketplace with a competitive and robust offering of aftermarket material. Regional One is uniquely positioned to source and supply CRJ components to MHIRJ’s MRO and distribution network given our extensive fleet of aircraft and component inventory. We look forward to joining MHIRJ in the serving CRJ market for years to come.” – said Kurt Brulisauer, Chief Commercial Officer of Regional One.
