MTU Maintenance Canada has completed a move from Richmond, near Vancouver Airport, to Boundary Bay in Delta, British Columbia.
The move marks the successful conclusion of a brownfield adaptation that provides MTU Maintenance Canada with an additional space of around 60 per cent and consolidates all of its repair activities into one location.
“We are delighted to have now fully moved into our new home,” said MTU Maintenance Canada’s managing director and CEO Uwe Zachau. “Over the past two years, MTU Maintenance Canada has introduced the extremely popular V2500 and CF6-80C2 engine programmes to its portfolio.
“The additional space will help us ensure the success of these programmes and give us the flexibility to perform highly-customised engine maintenance repair and overhaul for our customers.”
During a gradual integration over the past one and half years, MTU Maintenance Canada said it was able to flexibly stagger machinery, equipment and team movement to maintain continued operations.
“Design and building upgrades as well the transition into our new Boundary Bay facility were mastered by our highly-motivated internal team on top of normal operations,” said chief operating officer and project leader Christian Ludwig. “Now that we are fully moved in, we look forward to using this new space to further strive for operational excellence.”
