GE Aviation will invest $80 million at its Malaysian engine MRO facility to equip it to maintain CFM International Leap engines.

A long-term tenancy agreement was signed with Malaysia Aviation Group for its Subang engine maintenance facility, and GE will invest intooling, testing, and skills capabilities needed to maintain Leap engines.

That facility services CFM56 engines for more than 40 global carriers.

"GE has a long history of partnership in Malaysia, and we want to see that relationship continue. The GE Aviation's engine service facility in Malaysia is one of our flagship facilities in the region and the renewed lease agreement is a testament to the great work delivered by the local talent," says General Electric's chairman and chief executive John Flannery.
