Barfield, a subsidiary of Air France industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance (AFI KLM E&M) in the Americas, has launched a new authorised repair centre in Europe.

The agreement with Falgayras covers the repair and calibration of several GSTE products including air data/pitot static and turbine temperature.

The deal allows Barfield to be closer to its customer base in Europe as part of its worldwide strategy.

Hervé Page, Barfield's CEO, said: "This is our second agreement with Falgayras and it only strengthens the relationship and trust between our two companies."

The first agreement with Falgayras allowed Barfield to become the distributor of the French-based manufacturer in June 2018.

Falgayras supplies and manufactures on-board aircraft equipment such as flight control and navigational equipment, electronic and motor control equipment.

Christophe Falgayras, CEO of Falgayras, said: "We are very proud of our partnership with Barfield as it allows both companies to support each other and on this latest agreement, we make it easier for customers to service their equipment right here in Europe instead of sending them all the way back to the United States.”
