One of the major business aviation avionics manufacturers, Collins Aerospace, announced its investment of more than USD27 million to nearly double the size of its MRO operations in Xiamen, China and quadruple the size of its MRO footprint in Selangor, Malaysia. The additional capacity will shorten turnaround times and increase the efficiency of the company’s customer service in the region.
“The Asia Pacific region is a key market for Collins and these expansions represent our commitment to provide the best possible service to our regional customers,” said Daven Tey, Regional Director, IATA III Aftermarket Operations for Collins Aerospace. “Our customers are eager for in-region support for their growth platforms, and we’ll now be able to bring even more critical MRO services to their door. This growth will also pave the way for new product introductions and digital transformation to improve our future operations, while boosting on-time delivery.”
In Xiamen, Collins will invest more than $11 million to relocate its MRO operations from its current 50,000 square-foot facility to a new 80,000 square-foot facility. While in Selangor, Collins will invest more than $16 million to relocate its MRO operations from its current 40,000 square-foot facility to a new 160,000 square-foot facility at Subang Aerotech Park.
In addition, the company supports business aircraft such as the Premier 1/1A, the Challengers and Global series, the BBJ 737, the Embraer Legacy, as well as the Falcon 2000.
