Author: gatelesis

May 25, 2015 – Helsinki, Finland – GA Telesis, LLC officially launched its i-TEAMSTM program during ISTAT Americas 2015. i-TEAMS (“Intelligent Total Engine Asset Management Solutions”) leverages the expertise and core competencies of GA Telesis Engine Services Oy (“GATES”) together with GA Telesis’ Asset Transaction Group (“ATG”) to design intelligent options and provide whole engine or module assets for GATES’ growing base of engine-lessor customers.  Basil Papayoti, President and Director of GATES, remarked, “This is great value for our lessor community as it provides them a menu of options beyond traditional engine MRO, and it truly enables all our customers to intelligently manage their engine portfolio and maximize value, particularly in the mature portion of the engine life cycle.”

One of GATES’ first i-TEAMS customers is WNG Capital (“WiNG”).  Besides receiving world class MRO service from GATES, WiNG can now take full advantage of the i-TEAMS solution to make informed maintenance and financial decisions about their engine repair requirements.  Tom Keeler, Technical Director of WiNG, commented that “We found i-TEAMS was able to work for WiNG and we saw both the economic and time saving benefits offered by GATES and their product. We were able to quickly and easily evaluate all the options GATES offered, plus their customer service made it a great experience for WiNG.”
