Bombardier grows MRO capabilities

Posted 1 June 2017 · Add Comment

Bombardier is expanding its MRO capabilities to include hydraulic component maintenance and repair services across Airbus, Boeing and its own aircraft types.

From its MRO center in Belfast, the aircraft manufacturer’s aerostructures and engineering services division now has capacity for full inspection, testing, repair and overhaul of individual hydraulic components and assemblies.

Stephen Addis, vice-president, programs, customer services and business development at Bombardier’s Northern Ireland operations, says the expanded capabilities give the OEM a more comprehensive aftermarket offering.

“The development of this hydraulics repair capability allows us to offer a more comprehensive aftermarket service to our customers, which is complementary to our current service offering, and now includes a full nacelle thrust reverser repair service provided in-house,” he says.

Bombardier’s existing MRO services include component repair and overhaul of engine nacelles, flight control surfaces, landing gear and electrical harnessing, as well as technical support, modification and repair development, inspection and testing, parts exchange or lease, and mobile repair assistance.
