M1 Composites Technology recently opened an advanced composites repair facility “to meet increasing corporate, commercial and military demand,” Lorenzo Marandola, president and founder, told AIN. The 24,000-sq-ft facility features a certified clean room, large curing oven, paint finishing operation and a full complement of repair equipment.

The MRO also recently received its Transport Canada approval for composite and metallic repairs.

The company offers component repair, fabrication and engineering for flaps and other surfaces taken off the aircraft, thrust reversers, intake cowls or any component damaged either in flight or during ground operations.

Marandola said M1 Composites Technology is currently in discussions with several operators and OEMs as potential customers. “This is a global operation and we’re talking with agents all over the world. We have the same equipment that an OEM would have in its facility and our technicians and engineers are all highly experienced,” he said. “Our technicians, combined with the latest equipment, can provide a catered solution to meet specific customer needs,” Marandola added.
