SR Technics (Booth D11) says it is ready to start operations at its new component maintenance facility in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (SR Technics Malaysia Sdn Bhd), which is part of a strategy designed to increase proximity to customers.
The first components to undergo repair are hydraulic pumps, ballscrew actuators, power drive units and audio control panels, the company said.
The repair facility, which has just over 100 employees, will initially support 300 part numbers, rising to 1,200 by year-end. Its five main product areas will be avionics, hydraulics, mechanical, pneumatics and electrics. At the beginning, it will operate under EASA approval before receiving approvals from the Malaysia’s Department of Civil Aviation this month and then the FAA in April.
