Aerospace performance components and subsystems specialist Meggitt is celebrating the expansion of its service and support centre of excellence in Singapore.
The 42,000 square foot facility has doubled in size to incorporate five detectors, cable assemblies, actuators, sensors, valves and heat exchangers, adding over 100 new part numbers to the current aviation portfolio.
The added capability will allow Meggitt to focus on building capability to support the fastest growing new generation aircraft including the Airbus A320neo, Airbus A350XWB and Boeing 737MAX.
Meggitt’s vice president and general manager APAC Adrian Bunn said: “We are delighted to mark the expansion of our state-of-the-art facility in Singapore with visits from some of our most important customers, supply partners and guests from the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) and JTC who have played a vital role in helping us reach this point.
“The support provided by the Singapore government has enabled us to invest during a period of unprecedented challenge for our industry. Our ability to support our customers with an even broader range of maintenance, repair and overhaul services has already enabled us to weather the storm posed by the global pandemic and provides an excellent foundation for growth as the industry emerges from this crisis”.
To mark the opening, Meggitt welcomed guests from across the Asia Pacific aviation market.
“We congratulate Meggitt on the expansion of its aftermarket Centre of Excellence in Singapore. The aerospace industry is seeing signs of recovery from the impact of COVID-19, and Meggitt’s continued investment in Singapore is a testament to the confidence in Singapore’s business environment, strong aerospace infrastructure and global connectivity,” said Singapore Economic Development Board’s vice president, investment facilitation division, Junie Fo.
“Meggitt plays a key role in Singapore’s diverse aerospace ecosystem and we look forward to its continued growth here as we create good job opportunities for Singapore and Singaporeans.”
