Marketplace for component services
Headquartered in Hamburg-Norderstedt and founded in July 2017, Skeyos is a wholly owned subsidiary of Lufthansa Technik AG and part of its Component Services division. The start-up sees itself as a digital marketplace for the aviation industry. For this purpose, Skeyos has developed an efficient marketplace and procurement tool that can either be integrated into existing IT environments or used as an independent platform. The tool allows users to make purchases directly and offers them integrated fulfillment from a single source.
Users can thus sell and buy component services on this manufacturer-independent platform. With the development of this digital tool, Skeyos makes what are otherwise complex and time-consuming administrative processes noticeably easier for buyers and suppliers across the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) industry. The solution additionally promises increased transparency, reliability and ease of use in the procurement of aircraft maintenance services. Thanks to the marketplace, the direct purchase and the entire processing of the repair process can take place online – with comprehensive data security and encryption.
Skeyos' globally active network not only brings together suppliers and buyers to do business, it also guarantees fixed prices and turnaround times. The Skeyos marketplace already offers component services for more than 10,000 parts worldwide. At the moment, the company has 10 employees. After one year, a total of 60 international companies have already registered on the platform, among them Lufthansa Technik, SWISS, Mingo Aerospace and the UMBRAGROUP. The network will be continuously expanded in coming months to make Skeyos the MRO marketplace of choice.
