Boeing [NYSE: BA] and New York-based W.S. Wilson have signed an agreement that will allow them to significantly reduce an airline’s maintenance-related costs.

SEATTLE — This long-term agreement is part of Boeing’s Integrated Materials Management (IMM) initiative where Boeing and suppliers such as W.S. Wilson maintain an airline’s inventory of spare parts, providing items only as needed. By reducing an airline’s inventory, IMM reduces the cost of doing business, saving the customer time, resources and money.

„Boeing is excited to add W.S. Wilson to the Integrated Materials Management family of customers and network suppliers,“ said Joe Brummitt, director of Integrated Materials Management for Boeing. “
