SR Technics and Vietjet Air sign a Memorandum of Understanding worth US$150 million
SR Technics, a world leading MRO service provider is pleased to announce that in late November, its Malaysia operations received the airworthiness certification from the Civil Aviation Authority of China. With the certification, SR Technics Malaysia will be able to certify components for customers on the Chinese market. Additionally, SR Technics Switzerland renewed the existing CAAC certification which allows us to continue to grant Chinese airworthiness certificates from our Swiss maintenance facilities.
The CAAC certification is an important milestone for SR Technics, as the company is expanding its component services in China and the wider Asia Pacific region. This certification will enable SR Technics Malaysia to support both existing and new Chinese-based customers in component repair, and more broadly, it evidences the growth and development of the company’s facilities and services. The Malaysia location will now be able to assist carriers, MROs and third-party customers that require the certification with component repairs on their Airbus and Boeing aircrafts in China, increasing SR Technics’ presence and capabilities in the Asia Pacific region.
“We are very excited about the new certification for our component repair facility in Malaysia, which will strengthen our position on the Asia Pacific market,” says Thomas Kennedy, Vice President Component Maintenance and Managing Director for SR Technics in Malaysia. “I would like to congratulate our team on this landmark achievement for SR Technics in Malaysia.”
Opened in 2014, the SR Technics Malaysia facility boasts a component maintenance service center for the testing, repair, overhaul and modification of aircraft and engine components, serving as the regional customer service center for the company’s Asia Pacific-based component services customers.
