1531

GREENVILLE, S.C., May, 01 2024 – Passenger and crew safety in the aviation industry is paramount, and having a trusted name on an aircraft has never been more important.

Unlike other aviation tire manufacturers, Michelin provides aviation products and solutions with, around and beyond tires. This was seen recently at the 2024 MRO Americas show in Chicago.

In today’s aviation landscape, aircraft companies are increasingly prioritizing maintenance as an integral aspect of their overall operations, often navigating through extensive networks of suppliers numbering in the thousands. Managing such complexity poses significant challenges, especially with heightened emphasis on quality in response to recent industry setbacks.

Michelin, along with Michelin Group Companies Fenner Precision Polymers and CDI products, are coordinating with the aerospace market to provide comprehensive solutions beyond tires.  

“The abundance of suppliers often brings unnecessary complexities and heightened risks,” said M. Scott Murray, Vice President of aircraft tire sales at Michelin North America, Inc. “Through this collaborative effort, our focus is on streamlining processes, promoting simplicity and enhancing overall quality in aircraft maintenance while simultaneously reducing risks. We will provide multiple supplier solutions under one, historically trusted name: Michelin.”
