Melville, New York, September 4, 2014.  

Sage Parts, the world’s leading supplier of replacement parts for ground support equipment, continues to widen its international geographic footprint.  The company has announced that it has joined with Menzies Macau Airport Services Ltd. to open a new Sage parts and services facility onsite at Macau International Airport (MFM).  Macau International Airport is an airport in Macau, a Special Administrative Region (SAR) of the People's Republic of China. 

Menzies Macau Airport Services Ltd. provides passenger, ramp, cargo handling and aircraft maintenance services at MFM.  In the past year, Menzies Macau has handled the aviation demands of 5 million passengers and approximately 45,000 tons of cargo. 

Sage Parts has also established recent partnerships with other companies under the Menzies Aviation umbrella to provide GSE parts and related services onsite at additional airports around the world, including LAX in Los Angeles and JNB in Johannesburg, South Africa.

“In keeping with our overall strategy of bringing GSE replacement parts closer to the point of use and in line with our commitment to supporting Menzies on a global basis, Sage Parts is excited to bring important bottom line enhancements to Menzies Macau Airport Services Ltd.,” said Ewald Groenewald, Sage Parts Vice President, Business Development.  “Our new onsite facility at Macau International Airport will make GSE parts immediately available, virtually eliminating the possibility of equipment sitting idle on the ramp waiting for replacement parts to arrive...while also creating significant savings opportunities in parts acquisition costs, as well as substantially reducing freight, handling and other expenses associated with the shipment of GSE parts.”

Sage Parts will dispense GSE replacement parts, manage inventories and provide an extensive array of GSE support services at its new facility at Macau International Airport. Besides the rapid availability of parts for Menzies Macau’s fleet of ground support equipment, Sage’s presence at MFM will also assure optimal parts quality and consistency.
