Consumable management has many hidden costs with so many 'out of hand' variables to consider which can easily be overlooked. By offering our customers a single source supply with guaranteed stock availability, PDQ can guarantee significant time, financial and logistical benefits as well as reducing many operational burdens along the way. We have a dedicated contracts team to assist customers and essentially run the programme for them.
Warehouse procedures are streamlined and accounting is simplified with one invoice, from one source, once a month. The flexibility of our programs means they can be tailored and combined to meet the individual demands of our customer's operational needs. With fixed pricing, this also helps our customers operate their business models, costs and budgets from an operation standpoint, saving time and money once again.
Reducing in-house process inventory and associated carrying costs.
Implemented correctly, JIT focuses on continuous improvement and can greatly improve an organisation's quality and efficiency.
PDQ has an exceptional track record when it comes to asset disposal. PDQ has a 25-year unblemished trading history, exceptional market visibility and trust from buyers and sellers.
With internal marketing initiatives, and the use of platforms such as ILS and PartsBase, we ensure extensive worldwide visibility of parts that are for sale. If the part is required PDQ will get the call. PDQ has offices in Europe & Asia, bolstered with a network of tried and tested partners worldwide.
Consignment Inventory is inventory that is in the possession of the customer, but is still owned by PDQ Airspares.
Put simply, PDQ places an agreed amount of our inventory in our customer’s possession (in their store or warehouse) and allows them to consume directly from their stock. The customer purchases the inventory only after they have consumed it.
Kitting is a service PDQ provide to create pre-packaged and pre-labelled kits containing individual parts, increasing efficiency and reducing the time-consuming sourcing of individual parts. A kit includes different consumables and expendables that are always used together. Kits simplify your supply chain by taking several parts and combining them into one kit with one part number.
We understand the importance of keeping your aircraft in the air.
Whether you are a PDQ contract partner or a one-off caller, we have you covered.
Our highly refined AOG service, managed 24 hours a day on 365 days of the year, will always strive to ensure your parts are delivered swiftly and efficiently, with full availability of shipping data at all times where possible.

PDQ Airspares was the brainchild of 2 young entrepreneurs from the South of England, who mapped out a plan to provide a fast and efficient spares supply service to the global Airline industry. In 1990, from the humble beginnings of a 5,000 square foot rural farmland warehouse, the Fordingbridge based company was birthed.
Founders Chris Miller and Nic Lewis, had both come from Aviation backgrounds and as a result quickly developed an understanding of what makes for a successful supply operation. From the outset, it was clear that they wanted to be known as a company that was both swift and reliable, which reflected in their choice of company name – Pretty Darn Quick!
Armed with a clipboard, a loan and a sack of enthusiasm, they purchased their first package of B707 spares in 1991 and set about the task of making it available to the world!
