October 13-15, 2015, the biggest names in the MRO industry will convene in London’s ExCeL convention center for Aviation Week’s MRO Europe. As one of the year’s foremost opportunities for networking and business development, this conference is a must for global MRO businesses and their affiliates, and as such, Kapco Global will be there.
But this conference, featuring scores of exhibitors representing the leaders in aviation MRO services and technology, is more than just a meet and greet. It is also an opportunity to gain critical insight from some of the brightest minds in our industry as they tackle the issues that impact our businesses today and in the future.
The conference agenda is packed with speakers sharing their expertise on some of MRO’s greatest challenges—challenges we have explored throughout this past year here on the KG blog.
Global Supply Chain Management
UPS is sponsoring a collaborative workshop entitled, “Preparing for Tomorrow’s Supply Chain,” and will include speakers from Rockwell Collins, Lufthansa Technik Logistik Services GmbH, and Airbus. Here at Kapco, we believe that staying on top of the latest developments in this field is critical to global MRO efforts, and we write on the topic regularly, here on our news page and as contributors to the general conversation elsewhere. The following articles represent our take:

Strategic Inventory Management
For an MRO company, inventory management is critical, and as an aircraft MRO parts supplier and distribution specialist, a big part of our job here at Kapco is ensuring inventory supply and demand are balanced to meet our clients’ global needs and deadlines. We talk about it quite a bit, and to get you prepped for this session, we’ve compiled our list of articles on the topic:
