Revima will establish a landing-gear overhaul facility near Bangkok, with a scheduled opening in 2020.

The shop will be located in Chon Buri, southeast of the Thai capital, and initially concentrate on servicing landing gears for Airbus A320-family jets and Boeing 737s.

“All necessary special processes for full in-house repair and overhaul landing gear operations” will be established at the site, Revima says.

The French MRO provider – which specialises in APU, engine part and landing-gear support – says that the new plant’s machinery, warehouse, technical documentation processes and customer communications will be “digitally connected”.

A zero-rejection waste water system is to be installed at the site.

“Revima has over 45 years of landing-gear MRO experience that our new facility in Thailand will benefit from,” states chief executive Olivier Legrand.
