Singapore Component Solutions and Liebherr sign MRO cooperation Agreement

Singapore Component Solutions (SCS), a joint venture between AFI KLM E&M and Sabena technics dedicated to component support for ATR and Airbus A320 aircraft fleets, and Liebherr-Aerospace, a supplier of systems for the aviation industry, have finalised the signature of a cooperation agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, Liebherr-Aerospace will assist and support SCS in developing industrial capabilities dedicated to the A320 heat exchangers manufactured by Liebherr. SCS will thus join the Liebherr worldwide network for heat exchanger maintenance.

Through this partnership agreement, SCS will be qualified to carry out maintenance work on Liebherr-designed heat exchangers – more precisely from cleaning up to repairs, excluding renovation and reconstruction. In exchange, the Air France-KLM Group will make use of Liebherr services for work requiring the “recoring” (renovation, reconstruction) of defective heat exchangers.

Charles Thoyer-Rozat, Vice President Customer Services Liebherr-Aerospace said: “We are very pleased to join forces with a major player in the global multi-product aircraft maintenance market. This agreement sets out the framework of a win-win partnership for both parties that will allow Liebherr in particular to further develop its repair network in Asia.”

Gery Mortreux, Executive Vice President AIR FRANCE Industries, added: “AFI KLM E&M is delighted to be working with Liebherr, an internationally-reputed OEM whose products equip a large number of aircraft fleets. Liebherr’s experience and know-how will be most valuable to the Group, and to SCS in particular, for developing our industrial capabilities – a major objective of ours as we continually strive to better and more extensively satisfy our customers’ needs.”
