Aeroflex, Wichita, Kan., is partnering with Ameco Beijing (Aircraft Maintenance and Engineering Corp.) to provide a local service center for Chinese customers, an attempt to capitalize on the rapidly growing avionics market in China. Located at the Beijing Capital International Airport, Ameco Beijing, a joint venture between Air China Ltd. and Lufthansa German Airlines, will calibrate and service Aeroflex avionics test equipment sold in China for civil end users. “This new partnership enables us to add greater value for our Chinese customers and enhance their confidence in our avionics test equipment. We want our customers to know that when they purchase or use a piece of Aeroflex avionics equipment, their needs will be taken care of quickly and efficiently,” said Jimmy Tan, vice president of sales for Asia Pacific, Aeroflex Test Solutions. Ameco Beijing has a calibration and test center including five laboratories with hundreds of pieces of test equipment. The center will provide the required knowledge to properly calibrate and service any of Aeroflex’s commercial avionics test equipment.
