Paris, Amstelveen, Miami 13 April 2015 - AFI KLM E&M's Bonus Tech, a company specializing in engine tear-down solutions, parts identification and packaging, recently carried out the disassembly of its one thousandth engine.
A benchmark player

Bonus Tech passed a significant milestone when it completed the disassembly of its 1,000th engine, a CF6-80C2 owned by AAR Parts Trading Inc., a valued, long-term client.
"Chance sometimes does things well, as AAR was Bonus Tech's first CF6-50C2 client, and we are pleased to have been able to experience this symbolic milestone with them," commented Vincent Benoit, Bonus Tech CEO. "The trust bestowed on us by AAR and other major clients, including General Electric and Pratt & Whitney, testifies to the high performance levels of our services and the care and attention we lavish on the needs of our customers."
In joining forces in 2013, AFI KLM E&M and the Bonus Aerospace/Bonus Tech grouping created a major player in the engine tear-down, inspection and repair sector. By relying on the technical expertise and skills of AFI KLM E&M's engine shops in Paris and Amsterdam, Bonus Tech has been able to progressively expand its capabilities and service offer, which now include the CF6-80E family engine.
