F/List is partnering with Bombardier to develop an enhanced interior shop at the OEM’s service center at London Biggin Hill, UK. The shop will add repair and refurbishment services to the site’s offering.
With targeted operational readiness in the coming months, the shop will offer in-cabin repairs available via the F/List worldwide Mobile Repair Team, while adding up to 20 new local jobs over the next few years. The shop will have a footprint up to 3,000ft² (279m²). Capabilities will include cabinetry repair and soft goods refurbishment. The partnership also establishes an opportunity for the future expansion of interior repair capabilities at the service center.
“We are very pleased to be working with F/List to provide enhanced interior repair and refurbishment capabilities at the Biggin Hill service center, offering even more service and support options for our European-based customers,” said Jean-Christophe Gallagher, vice president and general manager, customer experience, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “Customer satisfaction is always a top priority at Bombardier and the new interior shop will enhance reliability and expectations, further strengthening our support to our customers.”
The development builds on the long-standing relationship between F/List and Bombardier. The Austria-based firm is well-versed with Bombardier’s business aircraft programs, having installed components such as flooring, veneers, cabinetry and showers on various aircraft platforms for more than a decade.
“We are proud to be Bombardier’s partner in Biggin Hill to provide the highest quality interior services from small onboard repairs through cabin interior upgrades to the integration of floorings and other innovative products to their customers,” said Katharina List-Nagl, CEO of F/LIST. “This collaboration is an enormous, important milestone for F/List, not only in the aftermarket segment but also for our partnership with Bombardier.”
