Meggitt has received approval to repair more than 80 new components and subsystems in Singapore.
The centre, located at the Seletar Aerospace Park in northeast Singapore, has also doubled in size to 42,000 sq ft., and Meggitt states that the facility now can perform work on components and systems such as fire detectors, actuators, valves, as well as heat exchangers.
The company adds that the latest expansion “was driven by the significant growth in content Meggitt has secured on next generation aircraft”, including Boeing’s 737 Max, the Airbus A350 and A320neo, as well as engines such as the PW1100G geared turbofan and CFM Leap.
Meggitt vice president for services and support Adrian Bunn says: “In spite of the recent crisis, long-term growth prospects in the Asian region remain strong. With our enhanced portfolio we are better equipped than ever to support our regional customers once the green shoots of recovery emerge.”
The Singapore centre is one of Meggitt’s three global facilities in the services and support unit. Meggitt has one in Miami, serving the Americas region, as well as a European hub in Ansty Park in the UK, which opens later in the year.
