Bombardier will quadruple the size of its Singapore Service Centre to handle growing aftermarket demand from business jet operators in Asia.
The expanded facility at Seletar Aerospace Park will open in 2020, and will be able to handle over 2,000 visits annually. It will also introduce new customer facilities, a 3,500m2 aircraft painting facility, expanded component repair and overhaul services, heavy structural and composite repair, and a 929m2 integrated parts depot.
“Customers will enjoy access to the complete range of OEM customer service and support right on their doorstep, 24/7, 365 days a year,” says Jean-Christophe Gallagher, Bombardier’s vice-president and general manager customer experience.
“This expansion is another key building block in our drive to enhance the accessibility of our OEM expertise for customers worldwide and to solidify our position as a leader in aftermarket services in the Asia-Pacific region, a pivotal growing part of our global network.”
Since it opened in 2014, the existing service centre has grown to employ over 150 staff and has a range of authorisations to service Bombardier’s Global, Challenger, and Learjet aircraft.
