Fokker is partner in the consortium that develops, produces and supports the NH90 helicopter. In July 2012, Fokker Services was appointed by NHIndustries (NHI), the Eurocopter Group and Agusta Westland as the exclusive provider for all the NH90 helicopter standard parts for the entire support phase of the NH90 helicopter. The contract is valued at multiple millions Euro’s. Fokker Services was already part of the NHI supply chain with direct access to and a real time interface connection with the NHI Support system containing all logistic transactions (spares, warranty and component repairs) for the entire NH90 helicopter fleet.
Fokker owes this position thanks to their already strong position and excellent reputation as a stock keeping distributor and logistic services provider for several different aircraft, including Fokker, Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier and Lockheed Martin. On a yearly basis, the Fokker Services facilities in Hoofddorp processes 35.000 incoming and 55.000 outgoing logistic transactions.
“I am particularly pleased to have Fokker Services acting as a “center of excellence” within the NHI community taking care of all the many orders for standard hardware items. I am convinced that this addition will help NHI and its partners to further increase our logistic support performance and to further develop our logistic solutions” declared Xavier Poupardin, Delegated Managing Director of NHIndustries.
Peter Somers, President Fokker Services BV, added he is “very pleased that another platform is added to our logistic capabilities and I am confident that this achievement will further help us to apply our knowledge and experience for the Defense market”
