May 11, 2009, Geneva, Switzerland – StandardAero brings its knowledge, experience and leadership in turbine engine and APU MRO to EBACE.
May 11, 2009, Geneva, Switzerland – Citing nearly 100 years of engine maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) capabilities, StandardAero brings its knowledge, experience and leadership in turbine engine and auxiliary power unit (APU) MRO to this year’s European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) show in Geneva, Switzerland.
“With a deep depth and breadth in providing one-stop service and repair, worldwide field service support, on-site engineering and in-house component repair for an array of turbine engines and APUs, StandardAero is well positioned in the business aviation market,” said StandardAero President & CEO, Rob Mionis. “Our expertise in engine and APU MRO creates undeniable market significance and value for our customers.”
StandardAero is an OEM-authorized service provider for Honeywell TFE731, TPE331, HTF7000 and CFE738; General Electric CF34®; Rolls Royce AE3007; and Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A, PW100 and PW600. Currently, the company processes more engines in the TFE and CFE lines than any other single service center and was the first to perform services on the Honeywell TFE731.
Over the past year, StandardAero has made significant investments throughout its network in expanding its engine MRO capabilities. These include a $20 million CF34® facility expansion in Winnipeg Canada, the development of a new, state-of-the-art PW600 test cell in Maryville, Tenn., a $3 million shop redesign at our Los Angeles facility, and new PT6A engine-upgrade programs. The Augusta, Ga. facility is now a center of excellence for TFE731 heavy work with the remaining facilities handling fly-in aircraft. Los Angeles now handles all TPE331 work. These changes create more efficient inventory management and reduced turn around time through further repair development within the StandardAero network.
StandardAero is located globally throughout Europe, North America, Australia and Southeast Asia with facilities on six of the world’s seven continents, and is fully supported by a worldwide sales force.
