05/06/2019 - Barfield Inc. Chooses Arabcal to Support Its GSTE Product Line in the Middle East in Three-Year Agreement

AFI KLM E&M American Subsidiary enters into exclusive agreement with Arabian Calibration & Devices Repairing LLC (Arabcal) facility to calibrate and repair Ground Support Test Equipment (GSTE) in the Middle East.


Paris, Amstelveen, Miami, 05th June 2019 - Barfield Inc., a subsidiary of Air France KLM Engineering & Maintenance (AFI KLM E&M) in the Americas recently signed an agreement to have Arabcal provide repair and calibration services for a wide range of GSTE products to accommodate its growing customer base in the Middle East.

"We are very excited about this partnership agreement as our customers have been expecting us to make it easier for them to have their equipment serviced. Before, they had to send their equipment all the way to the United States at least once a year for calibration or repair service, which was not cost effective. Now, we have a solution that works for us and for our partner Arabcal, a reputable repair facility in the region," says Lew Wingate, Barfield's Vice President of GSTE and Distribution.

Barfield is the world leader in Air Data, Turbine Temperature and Fuel Quantity testers. Those testers are sold around the world and require regular calibration.

"The signing of this agreement allows us to expand the line of products we support in our state-of-the-art facility in the UAE and other GCC neighboring countries. We comply with globally accepted standards and practices, and working with Barfield only solidify our reputation in the region", says David Robinson, General Manager of Arabcal.

Arabcal's facility in the Middle East will repair and calibrate Barfield ground support test equipment.
