MTU’s Canada Business Consolidates Services At New Facility
MTU Maintenance Canada has completed its move across the province of British Columbia to a new facility in Delta which will increase its capacity by around 60%.
The MRO was previously based in Richmond, near Vancouver Airport, moved to the new site in Boundary Bay, Delta, a few miles south of its previous location in a gradual process that took around 18 months.
In addition to the additional space, MTU says the move consolidations all its repair activities into one location.
The move follows an increase in repair activities in Canada by the company. Since 2019, it has introduced capabilities for the V2500 and CF6-80C2 engine programs, in addition to pre-existing CFM56 services.
Military work has also increased after signing contracts for the military versions of the V2500 and CF6-80C2 engine types for the F108 and F138 aircraft programs of the United States Air Force.
“The additional space will help us ensure the success of these programs and give us the flexibility to perform highly-customized engine maintenance repair and overhaul for our customers,” says Uwe Zachau, managing director and CEO of MTU Maintenance Canada.
