Lufthansa Technik Shenzhen resumes investments and capability build-up
- Conversion of bonded warehouse in MRO space
With the recovery of the Chinese aviation market, Lufthansa Technik Shenzhen (LTS) has resumed its investments into new capabilities. The company is currently converting its bonded warehouse to a 2.100 sqm maintenance workshop as well as climate controlled material storage.
The corresponding conversion measures are scheduled to be completed in June 2021 and will enable LTS to further build up its capabilities. These will include providing component repair services for more than 70 Honeywell shipped components onboard the Airbus A350, for which the company will be the only licensed facility in Asia-Pacific.
The increase of capabilities will also include a cooperation of LTS with its partner TAT Technologies. LTS will soon provide the Asia-Pacific market with the largest capability of heat transfer component repairs, overhaul and core replacement services, supporting most major platforms and components on the environmental control, bleed air and fuel inerting systems.
Additionally, LTS also plans to build up service capabilities for components of Meggitt fire & safety Systems, valves, sensors and fuel systems, with LTS serving as Meggitt OEM center of excellence in China.
Benjamin Scheidel, President and CEO of Lufthansa Technik Shenzhen said, "We are thrilled to resume investments to fill our agreements with our partners Honeywell, Meggitt and TAT with live, providing our customers with unique, world class quality and cost efficient solutions for legacy as well as the newest aircraft types."
