MTU Maintenance opens new Dubai office

Posted 26 February 2020 · Add Comment

MTU Maintenance, an aero engine solutions provider, has opened its new office in Dubai.

 

The company said demand for narrow-body services is expected to grow in the Middle East. The company has also witnessed a rise in CFM56 and V2500 shop visits from the region.

 

While MTU has always been present in the region, the company is proud to have made this move and be even closer to its customers. It is part of its global growth strategy and enables immediate proximity to the commercial engine maintenance and leasing scene in the region – and in turn, to meet their needs better and faster. This opening follows on from the recently opened MTU Maintenance Lease Services office in Singapore and Dublin.

 

“Some of our largest customers are based in Middle East. This move is a deliberate step in our global growth strategy to strengthen our customer relationships and be on hand to most flexibly respond to their needs,” says Martin Friis-Petersen, Senior Vice President MRO Programs, MTU Aero Engines. “And it is a clear signal as to the importance of the Middle Eastern region for MTU.”

 

“We have over 20 customers in the region. MTU tailors excellent solutions for a variety of engine types including for the GE90, the world’s largest turbofan.” adds Sami Ben-Kraiem, vice president marketing and sales, Middle East & Southeast Asia. “We support our customers with these high value engines from their entry into service, for example with sale and lease back, reliable MRO performance,  right up to the migration or exit of such fleets, both within and beyond the region.” MTU Maintenance also sees strong demand for narrowbody services in the Middle East and is experiencing an increase in CFM56 and V2500 shop visits from the region to its facilities in Hannover and Zhuhai.
