Our Green Sunrise strategy has been up and running for a year, and a lot has happened since...in this article we share a peek into the establishment of our Malaysian MRO workshop, which opened earlier this year. Happy reading!
During September 2018, the Malaysian green team started a 3-month complete renovation process of the workshop and on January 30th, 2019, the workshop was approved by the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM).
The new workshop is located at the Subang Helicopter Center and consists of a 650 sqm workspace, warehouse and office, spread over three connected units. The facility has been installed with highly efficient equipment, like all TP Aerospace’s workshops globally and a paperless system for the workshop to simplify the process and store data to document our work.
The workshop is set up with the capability to repair and service both wheels and brakes, supporting all Trading and Program customers in Malaysia. Currently, the shop is operated by six certified staff Who will perform maintenance and overhaul of up to 10 units per day.
TP Aerospace has chosen to establish an MRO in Malaysia as we already serve customers in the country, the airline market is growing with a significant pace and last our value proposition fits very well to the airline operators where we are confident that we can provide a best in class service.
“It was important to establish a facility with a well-designed layout that provides seamless workflow from start to finish. In addition, we want to be closer to our customers’ operations as means to maintaining the highest possible service level. I am confident, that with this facility and the team on the site, we can support our airline customers in the region well into the future.” Says TP Aerospace’s Regional Manager, Bee Ng.
TP Aerospace has served the Malaysian customers for many years from their Singapore facility, and therefore has a good foothold in the country and knows the airlines well. But with this expansion, the company expects to further build on those relationships and welcome potential new customers.
