Sage Parts on-site facility at Hong Kong airport
brings cost savings to Asian ground support operations
Farmingdale, New York, December 12, 2008 – Sage Parts, the world’s leading supplier of replacement parts for ground support equipment (GSE), is making parts and other GSE solutions more readily available and more cost-effective for aviation businesses throughout Asia. From its on-site facility at Hong Kong International Airport (HKG), Sage maintains parts inventories, provides expertise and offers other services designed to increase efficiencies and enhance bottom-line performance for ground support operations.
“Sage is committed to expanding its presence all around the world, bringing replacement parts and many other solutions to GSE operations at the point of use in the geographic regions where those operations do business,” said Michael Bloomfield, Sage Executive Vice President. “Serving customers from our on-site Asian hub at Hong Kong International Airport enables us to ship parts to customers throughout Asia very quickly, reducing or eliminating the opportunities for GSE to sit idle on a ramp waiting for a part to arrive. Also, our HKG location helps to lower freight expenses for our customers in Asia.”
In meeting the GSE support needs of operations at HKG and other airports in Asia, Sage Parts has an agreement with Ground Support Engineering Ltd. (GSEL), a company that provides GSE maintenance to numerous Asian customers. Sage Parts owns and manages the on-site parts inventory at HKG. Sage personnel also dispense parts at the airport.
Sage Parts has the largest ready-to-ship inventory of GSE replacement parts in the world. The company helps minimize expensive GSE downtime and raise profit potential for ground support operations by utilizing an advanced computer database which catalogs all Sage’s parts electronically and makes parts available literally within moments. Sage Parts also offers “eSage,” the company’s interactive e-commerce site. Using a standard web browser, customers can log onto eSage and search parts by number, view photos and descriptions of parts, place orders, check order status and many other functions. The eSage system is linked directly to Sage’s entire network of international warehousing and distribution facilities, making customer order processing exceptionally convenient while also helping to speed delivery. Furthermore, through its GSE Services subsidiary, Sage Parts offers a comprehensive range of strategic solutions that can lower the total cost of GSE ownership – including life extension programs, equipment conversions and many other services.
In addition to its location in Hong Kong along with new locations in India, Amsterdam (AMS), Paris (CDG) and Dubai (DXB), Sage Parts also operates GSE parts warehousing and shipping facilities at its Farmingdale headquarters, at New York’s two largest airports (JFK and LGA), and many other airports located in key markets throughout North America, including Los Angeles (LAX), Atlanta (ATL), Washington, D.C. (IAD), Chicago (ORD), Miami (MIA), Dallas (DFW), St. Louis (STL), Montreal (YUL), Toronto (YYZ), Vancouver (YVR), and Puerto Rico (SJU).
