— Spirit AeroSystems is changing the name of its aftermarket business to Global Customer Support & Services to reflect the division's focus on customers, the company said Wednesday.

It formerly had been called Spirit Aftermarket Customer Support.

“This name change better represents the services we provide to our global customers. GCS&S is focused on providing the best customer support anywhere, anytime around the globe,” Bill Brown, senior vice president of Spirit Global Customer Support & Services, said in a statement. “This is not just a name change it is how we conduct business. We are committed to delivering the highest level of quality, reliability and customer service for our customers.”

Spirit offers a diverse line of products and services for aerospace design, build, support, spares and maintenance and repair needs, the company said.

It’s the manufacturer of thousands of spare parts sold directly to customers through a licensing agreement wit the original equipment manufacturer, it said.

And it has repair capabilities for a wide range of commercial planes with an expertise in repairing composite nacelles.
