Bombardier’s full suite of aftermarket MRO capabilities will be provided in Berlin after the business jet manufacturer announced completion of an aircraft service centre in the German capital.
The company announced the acquisition of all the issued and outstanding shares of the aircraft service centre which was purchased from Lufthansa Technik AG and ExecuJet Aviation Group AG earlier this week. The purchase allows Bombardier to establish a wholly-owned service centre in Berlin and further expand its worldwide customer support footprint.
Facility has been providing services since 1997
Chris Debergh, Vice President, OEM Parts and Services, Bombardier, said: “We welcome the highly talented employees of the Berlin Service Centre to the Bombardier service network. We value their expertise and customer focus – as part of the Bombardier team, they will continue to provide best-in-class aircraft maintenance services to our valued operators of Bombardier business aircraft.”
The facility is strategically located at Berlin Brandenburg Airport and has been providing MRO services to Bombardier business aircraft customers since 1997. With more than 160,000 sq ft of service capacity and 240 highly-skilled employees on site, the service centre provides customers with the highest-level maintenance and support for Bombardier’s growing fleet of Learjet, Challenger and Global business jets based in Europe, Russia, Africa and the Middle East.
The service centre has received several awards for its technical excellence and customer satisfaction, thanks to its experienced and dedicated workforce. Among its many milestones, it was the first in Europe to perform maintenance on Bombardier’s flagship Global 7500 aircraft. The service centre has been recently modernised and has transformed its shop floor to maximise efficiencies and streamline processes.
