[Avionics Magazine 12-02-2016] AFI KLM Engineering and Maintenance (E&M) has inaugurated the company’s new Kuala Lumpur Materials and Logistics Service Center. The facility is designed to better serve the Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul center’s (MRO) client airlines throughout the region.

The company first deployed a warehouse in the country in 2011 as part of the Boeing Next-Generation 737 component service agreement between AFI KLM E&M and Malaysia Airlines. As of 2013 the center was gradually taking care of additional customers. The new logistic service center works in close coordination with the Singapore logistic center as well as the local component facilities in Shanghai and Mumbai. It beefs up the group’s logistics capabilities in the Asia-Pacific region and will become one of the decentralized logistic centers of AFI KLM E&M to service customers with all aircraft types for which AFI KLM E&M provides component services, including Boeing 737, 787 and Airbus A320, A330, A350 and A380.
