AAR Corp. (AIR) A Leading Supplier of the Aviation Industry

In Wood Dale, Illinois, just a stone’s throw from O’Hare International Airport, you will find the headquarters of the AAR Corporation. Self-billed as an aviation supply chain, AAR provides a gamut of services from maintenance and repair to aircraft sales and leasing.

The company has more than fifty years of experience assisting both commercial and government clients with achieving goals in an efficient and cost-controlled fashion. AAR’s MRO (maintenance, repair, and overhaul) capacity is one of the best in the business. With no job too big or too small, the company can accommodate the need for a single part or an entire supply-management solution. With more than 60 offices around the world, AAR employs more than 5,000 individuals.

In December of last year, AAR broadened it horizons significantly, with the acquisition of SUMMA Technology, a fabrication company providing engineering services for a range of clients in the aviation industry and beyond. It has been recently announced that AAR SUMMA Tech. was named a “Partner-Level Supplier” for 2008 by John Deere for manufacturing critical tractor components and systems. This branding is the highest accolade granted to suppliers of Deere & Company.

Indeed, AAR is a company worthy of notice, with seven of nine financial analysts rating it a “Strong Buy”. One professional believes that the company’s stock (now trading in the $15.00 range) could trade at double the current price, and still be considered undervalued.
