Common Challenges in MRO Procurement

The MRO supply chain is complex, regardless of the industry. For every purchased spare part there are potential challenges around lead time, parts availability, pricing, invoicing, quantity, quality, and more. 
Staying ahead of those challenges is difficult enough. Solving them requires significant resources and is far less of a burden via the supply, support and technical know-how of the Howcroft Group.
