Boeing is launching a Used Serviceable Material capability, the company announced at MRO Americas today.

USM provides customers with a convenient and cost-efficient alternative to brand-new parts, offering high-quality recertified parts harvested from retired aircraft.

“Our customers are demanding increased flexibility, responsiveness and cost-efficient options for aftermarket support,” said Ken Shaw, vice president of Supply Chain for Boeing Global Services. “Used Serviceable Material management gives our customers the ability to acquire high-quality parts quickly, and at a low cost.”

Boeing says the USM capability adds to its “one-stop-shop supply chain offerings” and “provides the quality guarantee of working directly with an original equipment manufacturer”.
