Topcast Aviation Supplies Co., Ltd. (TOPCAST) and Honeywell Aerospace signed a five-year distributor agreement in March 2021, covering the exclusive distribution of mechanical components, including the starter generator, mechanical systems, and air and thermal line-replacement units (LRUs), on Boeing 737NG aircraft in Mainland China.
This cooperation is set to lead the way with the delivery of Honeywell’s aftermarket mechanical products. Mainland China is the second largest region for the 737NG aircraft model, accounting for over 20 percent of the global market size, Topcast noted.
The new agreement will expand its portfolio to meet Honeywell’s diverse customer base, and represents both companies’ first joint advancement into the commercial aviation aftermarket.
“We are very pleased to develop our strategic relationship with Honeywell Aerospace and build a more comprehensive aftermarket platform. We strive to provide stellar products and MRO services to our customers that can fortify the future of flying,” said Steven Pearson, chief executive of TOPCAST.
The Hong Kong-based aircraft parts distributor expects to scale its business to prepare for aviation’s post-pandemic recovery and is optimistic about the new collaboration. “Honeywell Aerospace products and services are found on virtually every commercial aircraft. Its hardware and software solutions create more fuel-efficient aircraft, more direct and on-time flights, and safer skies and airports,” Topcast added.
