CHANDLER, Ariz. AvAir, an industry-leading inventory solutions provider for the aviation aftermarket, has acquired TAP Maintenance & Engineering Brazil’s entire inventory. More than 100,000 line items were obtained by AvAir from TAP M&E.

TAP M&E Brazil (formerly VEM Maintenance & Engineering) is a company of TAP Portugal Group, one of the world’s 10 largest aircraft and component maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) companies in the world.

Having the right inventory tagged and ready to go is something our customers expect from us,” said Brandon Wesson, president at AvAir. “We’re pleased to have been able to work with the TAP Air Portugal team to acquire this inventory and expand our offering for our customers.”
