Boeing, Sikorsky Launch Aircraft Services JV; David Adler Comments

LogisticsBoeing and Sikorsky Aircraft have formed a joint venture that will aim to help Saudi Arabia develop its aerospace industry with the goal of growing the country’s economy.

Boeing Sikorsky International Services will offer services such as logistics support, maintenance and alteration of aircraft and machine components in Saudi Arabia, the companies said Thursday.

The joint venture also will pursue foreign military sales contracts administered in the U.S. and train aircrews and maintenance workers.

“BSIS will compete and operate as a single-source provider of local and comprehensive sustainment for the Kingdom’s rotorcraft platforms,” said David Adler, a Sikorsky Aircraft aftermarket business president.

Boeing and Sikorsky provided equal investments to create BSIS, aiming to extend the presence of both companies in Saudi Arabia’s defense and aerospace sectors.

“We will manage this joint venture as we have our previous partnerships: by working closely with each other and communicating frequently with our customers,” said Peri Widener, Boeing’s rotorcraft support vice president and chairman of the board at BSIS.
