Tailored Maintenance Solutions for Military Products

AFI KLM E&M serving the needs of Defense

Adaptiveness®, Personalized, flexible services
At AFI KLM E&M, we believe that all maintenance operations, from the lightest to the heaviest, can only be successful if they are based on a close partnership between service supplier and principal. The Adaptiveness® concept that we implement in our relations with clients underpins this fact. We listen to you and integrate your expectations, from the design of our solutions right through to implementation, so that we can offer you the most appropriate Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) program in terms of performance and costs.

This ability to tailor our services to the needs of our clients, along with our expertise and the quality of our MRO solutions, won AFI KLM E&M the MRO of the Year accolade at the Airline Economics Aviation 100 Awards, on 20 January 2014.
