FACC Aftermarket Services
FACC is launching the new business segment Aftermarket Services. The Austrian specialist for innovative lightweight components and systems is basing the novel program on three pillars: Repair, Refurbish and Replace. The three existing divisions - Aerostructures, Engines and Nacelles as well as Cabin Interiors - will be supported with value-added services. "Both the increasing composite share in aircraft and our specific expertise open up great potential in the repair and maintenance business. The 200 percent growth in this area at our US location, moreover, shows us that this is the right step to take", says Robert Machtlinger, CEO of FACC.
All required approvals, such as EASA.21J for design organizations, AT.21G for production organizations and EASA AT.145 for maintenance organizations as well as FAA and TCCA certifications have already been obtained. The new aftermarket services are offered worldwide, thereby creating greater proximity to customers around the world. In addition to existing well-known OEMs, a new and broader customer base is addressed, which includes airlines, MRO stations, spare parts and service providers as well as other OEMs. The first locations to provide these services are the Group headquarters in Ried, Austria, and the subsidiaries FSI-Montreal in Canada and FSI-Wichita in the USA.
