Asian Compressor Technology Services Company (ACTS), a Taiwan-based engine parts repair subsidiary of MB Aerospace, marked its 25th anniversary of operation this week by announcing plans to rebrand as MB Aerospace Taoyuan.

The quarter-century milestone was celebrated at its Taipei Taoyuan International Airport site where the name change was confirmed by company executives.

Located in Taiwan’s capital, the company was acquired by MB Aerospace at the beginning of 2018 and became its Asia-Pacific repair hub. In the following two and a half years, capacity has more than doubled at the facility, where it repairs engine high pressure compressor stators and shrouds for engine OEMs, airline MROs and brokers.

These services span several engine types, including V2500, CFM56, CF6, PT6, GENx and GE90 engines, with the likes of Pratt & Whitney, MTU and Delta Airlines counted as customers. The business also holds core competencies across machining, brazing, welding and high-performance coatings.

Craig Gallagher, CEO of MB Aerospace, says the rebranding signals its commitment to further expansion. “Since acquisition, we have invested heavily to expand our capacity and capabilities. The second facility became operational in 2019 and enabled us to develop existing in-house capabilities alongside newly developed auto welding and surface treatment, attracting new customers far earlier than we had originally planned,” he says.

Gallagher adds that MB Aerospace also plans to grow its on-site capabilities covering both legacy and new generation engine products. 

The company was founded in 1995 as a joint venture comprised of Pratt & Whitney, China Airlines and Singapore Airlines Engineering Company, originally servicing high pressure compressor stators and shrouds on PW2000 and PW4000 engine programs. 

Today, it employs more than 130 staff and operates as one of MB Aerospace’s 10 global sites.
