The facility will operate under the name Dunlop Taikoo (Jinjiang) Aircraft Tyres, and is a joint venture with Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering (HAECO) and Taikoo Aircraft Engineering (TAECO), says Dunlop.

HAECO owns 28% and TAECO 9% of the JV, which has received product approval from the CAAC and full repair-station approval from EASA, Dunlop adds.
