Ready, Set, Grow: MHIRJ Is Diversifying
Since the advent of MHIRJ, diversification has always been a driving force behind their long-term growth plans. That’s why MHIRJ is excited to bring a new level of aftermarket service to the industry. Their OEM background and expertise with the iconic CRJ aircraft have enabled them to take their technical capabilities even further to cater to new markets, including Embraer E145 aircraft, beginning with a new agreement with Piedmont Airlines—a subsidiary of American Airlines.
“Our collaboration with Piedmont represents a significant milestone for us as it emphasizes MHIRJ’s commitment to servicing aircraft beyond the CRJ,” said Ismail Mokabel, Senior Vice President, Head of Aftermarket. “Our focus remains to create continued value for our CRJ customers and offer our Heavy Maintenance expertise and experience on other platforms, while exploring opportunities that will allow us to elevate our service offering and diversify our capabilities. These are exciting times at MHIRJ.”
This means that they now provide their expertise and 30 years of experience to other platforms to better serve their customers.
FROM MRO TO CRO
Their recent expansion doesn’t stop there. Since 2021, they’ve been increasing their Component Repair and Overhaul (CRO) offering from an ad-hoc basis to a full-service offering, with parts coming in from across the globe. Over the past 2 years they’ve tripled the size of this segment and moved into a brand-new facility designed to accommodate this service growth which now caters to all key structural components, flight controls, electrical and avionics, with fuel, air systems and hydraulics servicing part of their strategic development plan.
MHIRJ currently services parts for the CRJ, DHC Q Series, and soon Embraer 145, and will continue to add more platforms moving forward. This service provides their customers with the additional convenience of having service for their structures and systems all under one roof.
READY TO SERVE AIRBUS 220 CUSTOMERS
As the largest regional aircraft MRO service provider in the U.S., it’s equally important for MHIRJ to grow their Heavy Maintenance and Mobile Repair Team (MRT) offerings to take on new platforms, including narrow-body aircraft like the Airbus 220. Their mobile repair team technicians are now trained and qualified and ready to offer this service to A220 operators. The mobile repair team offers quick reaction repair services onsite for unforeseen and unscheduled incidents whenever and wherever they’re needed.
As they continue to develop into a larger one-stop shop for their valued customers, they’re also expanding their parts asset management to offer an extensive range of new and used serviceable materials.
SERVICE ON ANOTHER LEVEL
Moving forward, MHIRJ is dedicated to maximizing their knowledge and building upon the legacy their customers have come to know and trust. Expanding their skillset to provide a more complete service offering only means greater growth and capability for them, and greater convenience for their ever-growing customer base.
