Bombardier has completed the acquisition of an aircraft service centre in Berlin, Germany. The OEM purchased all the shares it didn’t already own from Lufthansa Technik and ExecuJet Aviation Group.
“We welcome the highly talented employees of the Berlin service centre to the Bombardier service network,” said Chris Debergh, vice president, OEM Parts and Services. “We value their expertise and customer focus – as part of the Bombardier team, they will continue to provide best-in-class aircraft maintenance services to our valued operators of Bombardier business aircraft.”
Located at Berlin Brandenburg Airport, the centre has been providing MRO services to the OEM’s business aircraft customers since 1997. It features more than 160,000ft² (15,000m²) of service capacity and 240 highly skilled employees on site.
The facility has received several awards for technical excellence and customer satisfaction. It was the first centre in Europe to perform maintenance on Bombardier’s flagship Global 7500.
Recently, the site’s shop floor was modernised and transformed to maximize efficiencies and streamline processes.
