MRO supplier Farsound is expanding its operations in Spain with the opening of a new facility close to Madrid-Barajas Airport to serve its airline customer Iberia.

Farsound’s new warehouse and operational facilities will be located in San Fernando de Henares, a town in the province of Madrid and will be fully operational at the end of this year.

The new building has been adapted specifically for the purpose and the team based there will supply and maintain key components for aero engines for Iberia’s fleet of aircraft.

Service upgrade

Alfredo Sanchez Mateos, Farsound’s operations manager for Spain, said: “We have been working with Iberia airline for some time now and are delighted to be able to expand and upgrade our services and support for them with our new facilities.”

Lee Kelsey, Farsound’s group sales director, added: “Being nearer to Iberia maintenance, means our dedicated team can work more closely with them.

“We can provide the exact type and scope of aero engine parts, supply chain logistics and MRO services Iberia requires, exactly when they need it.”

Global presence

As well as its new premises in Spain, Farsound operates out of facilities in the UK, Europe, North America, Singapore and Japan.

Expansion of Farsound facilities has happened elsewhere too, with the recent purchase of a new UK headquarters and a new larger facility in Toronto, Canada.
