LINCOLN, NEB — During 2019, Duncan Aviation’s Managed Rotable Inventory or MRI expanded its customer base by more than a third, adding 45% more available part numbers and increasing its inventory value by $2 million dollars.
Cori Hawes was recently appointed as MRI Program Assistant to support the rapid growth. She joins Sr Rotable Consignment Manager Vince Cruickshank in the day-to-day management of client MRI Rotables with pricing updates, restocking activities, and processing core returns.
The MRI is a unique parts program like no other in the aviation industry. It allows clients to sell their aircraft rotable inventory to Duncan Aviation’s large customer base while still maintaining ownership, price control, and oversight.
“When clients first hear about it, many think it is too good to be true,” says Chris Gress, Duncan Aviation Parts & Rotables Sales Business Development Manager. “They think they missed something when we begin to discuss the basics of the program.”
The basics of the MRI program are quite simple. Here’s how it works: Clients ship select aircraft components from their rotable inventory to Duncan Aviation in Lincoln, Nebraska. Duncan Aviation manages all of the daily operations such as customer service, sales, marketing, shipping, exchange, repair, insurance, and billing. But clients maintain ownership and control of their inventory, making all pricing and stock level decisions.
Once MRI clients are part of the program, they immediately experience the broad reach of Duncan Aviation’s customer base. Inventories are marketed and sold to operators of helicopter, turboprop, and business, regional, and commercial aircraft.
