HAECO has announced the acquisition of US-based engine MRO firm Jet Engine Solutions (JES).

“JES has a strong reputation within the engine maintenance business for quality and delivery in the United States, which will complement the HAECO Global Engine Support business,” says Christopher Gibbs, HAECO group director for components and engine services.

“We are looking forward to integrating JES into our growing network of engine maintenance facilities and being able to expand the services we offer our customers globally.”

Based in Dallas, Texas, JES focuses on quick-turn repairs and lease returns for commercial engines.

HAECO adds that the acquisition is consistent with its strategy of building its engine support business. This includes a new engine support location near Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport, which has EASA Part 145 approval.

“The development of the HAECO Global Engine Support network offers hospital and in-field maintenance as part of the HAECO Engine Services strategy,” says Frank Walschot, chief executive of the HAECO Group.

“Together with HAESL and TEXL, our Rolls-Royce and GE overhaul businesses, HAECO Group will provide a full range of services from on-wing repairs to full performance restoration, for a wide range of the most modern engines being operated on commercial aircraft.”
