Sabena technics is opening a component repair shop at Seletar Aerospace Park in Singapore. The first certified equipment is scheduled to be released in September 2016. The 2,600m² facility will focus on technologies including avionics, hydraulics, fuel, electromechanics, cabin equipment, oxygen, pneumatics and aircraft structure component maintenance for several aircraft types.
“We have been present in the Asia Pacific region for more than 20 years, and we have seen the market grow at a very fast pace,” said Philippe Delisle, chief executive officer of Sabena technics Asia. “We needed to adapt our services and the opening of this repair facility is part of it. It will allow us to create additional capacity, reduce costs and provide better access and solutions to our customers in the region.”
In the first step of this development, Sabena technics plans to grow the workforce at the facility to 40 employees.
