LHT established a new repair and overhaul site for engine parts in Miskolc, Hungary

With the acquisition of property in the Hungarian city of Miskolc, Lufthansa Technik (LHT) has initiated the establishment of a new site for the repair and overhaul of aircraft engine parts.

Dubbed Lufthansa Technik Miskolc, a new fully-owned subsidiary of Lufthansa Technik AG will commence operations until 2022 and will utilise around 20,000 square meters of production space. Customers of Lufthansa Technik´s Engine Parts & Accessories Repair (EPAR) network will greatly benefit from this extended production capacity.

In the long term, Lufthansa Technik Miskolc will employ around 400 employees. Investments in the triple-digit million-euro range will hence not only encompass state-of-the-art machinery for procedures such as cleaning, thermal spraying and heat treatment of engine parts, but also an extensive training and qualification program.

“As the fourth-largest city in Hungary, Miskolc offers a great number of highly-qualified technical experts and moreover a good infrastructure”, added Philip Mende, Head of Engine Parts and Mobile Engine Services at Lufthansa Technik.  “We look forward to building Lufthansa Technik Miskolc together and adding the new colleagues to our worldwide network.”

Construction at the new site is planned to begin in 2021. Training and qualification courses for its employees will already begin in 2019 and will partly take place at the existing sites of the EPAR network in Germany, Ireland, Malaysia, China and the USA.
