11/05/2012 DASSAULT FALCON ADDS SPARES INVENTORY AND CUTS PRICES
Dassault Falcon is undertaking a broad initiative to expand inventories across the globe and reduce prices on more than 14,000 parts. These efforts expand the company’s ability to support a growing global fleet of more than 1,900 aircraft while increasing dispatch reliability. In addition, new parts packaging is reducing shipping costs for customers while cutting down on the use of resources.
“The increasing priority customers are placing on the quality and cost of spare parts service is a strong motivation for us to further improve and expand the worldwide spares support network,” said Guillaume Landrivon, Vice President of Worldwide Spares for Dassault Falcon. “Simultaneously, we are focusing on innovative ways to add value while setting the industry standard for excellent service levels.”
Parts inventory growth is focused in particular on rapidly growing emerging markets. Dassault Falcon has increased inventory at its Singapore, Shanghai, Sydney and Sao Paolo distribution centers by 30% and two new parts distribution centers in Moscow and in Beijing are planned.
Since the beginning of the year, Dassault Falcon has introduced price reductions on over 14,000 rotables and high demand exchange parts. The company will soon offer to ship accompanying hardware for high demand rotables free of charge, further boosting the value of Genuine Dassault Falcon Replacement Parts. Genuine Falcon Replacement Parts carry an industry-leading warranty of two years from installation, or 30 months from date of purchase.
Additional cost enhancements for high-usage parts were recently introduced. These include a free shipping coupon guaranteeing that Falcon will cover full shipping costs for cores returned within ten days. The company will also offer rental spares flyaway kits for operators travelling to out-of-the-way destinations. These kits contain parts and components that are most likely to have an impact on dispatch reliability.
