KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 28): ExecuJet MRO Services, an aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) firm wholly owned by French aerospace firm Dassault Aviation SA, plans to build a new, purpose-built MRO facility in Malaysia.
ExecuJet MRO Services now has a MRO services facility based at Subang airport in Selangor.
In a statement on Tuesday, ExecuJet MRO Services president and founder Graeme Duckworth said the company is also developing another MRO facility in Dubai that is due to open in the first half of 2022.
“ExecuJet is expanding further, with Malaysia and Dubai being the key growth areas. This is fundamental to (parent) Dassault’s strategy to ensure there is always the right level of capacity and capability for customers wherever they need it, and it supports the ExecuJet growth plans well,” said Duckworth.
“Despite tough competition, we have a very loyal customer base, which is constantly expanding,” he added.
In September 2019, ExecuJet MRO Services vice-president for Asia Ivan Lim was reported as saying that the company planned to reinforce its local presence by having a new integrated MRO facility at Subang airport to cater to the region, expected to be completed in 2021 or by 2022. Lim reportedly said ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia would move its operations to a new facility with capacity of between 100,000 sq ft and 150,000 sq ft from the 64,000 sq ft facility that it leased at Subang Airport.
Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, ExecuJet MRO Services currently has MRO facilities in Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe and the Middle East.
Specialising in airframe, avionics and engine maintenance, ExecuJet MRO Services engineers are factory-trained and certified for a wide range of aircraft including Dassault, Bombardier, Embraer, Gulfstream and Hawker.
