Chromalloy has opened a South Korean subsidiary in Seoul. It will serve as a sales, marketing and customer support office. “We are pleased to continue our expansion in the region with a subsidiary in South Korea to enhance the company’s accessibility to customers in Asia,” said Chromalloy president Armand Lauzon Jr. The opening of the South Korea office builds on the company’s 2010 opening of an office in Beijing, China, and doubling of capacity at its turbine engine repair and manufacturing operation in Bangkok, Thailand. Further stepping up its ability to serve the Asian market, Chromalloy has received approved organization exposition (AOE) certificates from the Japan Civil Aviation Bureau for two of its U.S. service centers. The certificates are the first issued since the 2009 U.S.-Japan Bilateral Aviation Safety Agreement went into effect. It recognizes FAA designated engineering representative-approved repairs. Bruce Johnson, vice president of engineering, told AIN, “We don’t have a repair station in Japan; however, under the JCAB approval our service centers in Arizona and Nevada are now authorized to provide turbine engine component repairs. The AOE certificates apply to the repair station facility and are applicable for maintenance work done at that facility for any Japanese air carrier.”
