These agreements give ACTS enhanced access to OEM-produced parts and services at industry-competitive pricing, and support efforts to produce industry-leading turnaround times." said Chahram Bolouri, president and CEO of ACTS. "This is one more way ACTS is improving its total offering to customers."

"This material agreement will enable ACTS to offer high-quality OEM parts and repairs to its CF34 MRO customers," said Brad Mottier, vice president and general manager of Services for GE Aviation. "We are very excited to work with ACTS and look forward to growing this relationship."
