AJW’s Star Part In Africa | African Aerospace

9 Oct 2019

In a recent edition of African Aerospace AJW Group Chief Executive, Christopher Whiteside, talks to Chuck Grieve about adding value to the business of supplying parts and spares through relationships, efficiencies and planning.

Technology is important in the competitive business of aviation parts and spares, but not as important as relationships. That’s why representatives of African airlines are frequent visitors to our headquarters in West Sussex, UK.


We’re a leading independent specialist in the global supply and repair of spare parts, and we count many of the continents’ airlines among our clients – and work hard to keep it that way.


Supporting our global customers


Chief Executive, Christopher Whiteside, emphasis that AJW is “not in the spanner-and-hanger business”. The company supports its customers with tailored component supply chain solutions.

Christopher Whiteside explains:


“We equip guests with knowledge of what we do and how we support them, so when we ask questions on the operations side, they understand how it all fits together.”
