The positive news here is that the agreement has TAT Technologies handling the “maintenance repair and overhaul of Honeywell’s 131 Series of Auxiliary Power Units.” This is Honeywell’s leading APU and is found in several aircraft, including the Boeing (NYSE:BA) 737 and Airbus (OTCMKTS:EADSY) 319/320/321.
The strategic MRO and lease agreement with Honeywell is worth noting as there are currently more than 16,000 131 Series APUs in use with more planned for the future. This agreement is also in addition to previous contracts with Honeywell to work on other parts. This opens TATT up to working with several airlines over the coming decades.
Igal Zamir, president and CEO of TAT Technologies, said this about the news sending TATT stock higher today.
“The 131 Series APU is the most common APU in the world. The Company believes that due to the execution of the new strategic agreement with Honeywell, its addressable market size in the MRO segment is expected to grow in a substantial manner, and therefore opens the door to TAT for potentially significant revenue growth in the MRO segment.”
