November 11, 2007, 6:34 PM

U.S. systems and services company Goodrich has embarked on its first joint venture in Turkey with the signature of a memorandum of understanding with Istanbul-based Turkish Technic for nacelle maintenance and repair work.

The deal calls for the new company, Goodrich HABOM, to provide maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services and rotable support for the fast-growing Turkish Airlines fleet of Airbuses and Boeings.

Goodrich HABOM will open a 43,000-square-foot certified repair station at Sabiha Gökçen international airport in Istanbul in 2009. The facility will also offer MRO support for other carriers in the region.

Turkish Technic already provides MRO services for Boeing and Airbus airframes, engines, auxiliary power units, landing gear and components for more than 100 European, Middle Eastern, North African and CIS airlines.
