SR Technics has announced that, effective 1 October 2020, its design engineering solutions department will be transferred to groWING.aero as part of a sale that ensures the continuity of these services.

    The company says it is selling the department due to the Covid-19 crisis and the changing market environment. SR Technics has decided to focus on engine services and line maintenance in Switzerland but will remain involved until the end of this year to support a smooth transition to the new owner.

    According to the company, all SR Technics staff dedicated to design engineering solutions at the Belgrade, Dublin and Zurich locations will continue to be employed at groWING engineering partners GmbH under the umbrella of the Swiss company groWING (holding) AG, based in Hünenberg.

    The new groWING.aero design organisation will continue to provide services under approval reference EASA.21J.770 and customers will continue to receive support from the former SR Technics team led by Randolph Odi as the previous and new operational lead, and in sales and customer support by Oladimeji Olukolu, also part of the current SR Technics team.

    Together with Patrik Kobler and Manfred Brunner from groWING.aero, the four managing partners will support the integration of the organisation into the groWING.aero network.

    Senior Vice President Aircraft Services at SR Technics, Jakob Straub said: “With groWING.aero, we are pleased to have found a reliable Swiss partner who will take over all existing projects and incorporate the SR Technics employees. This seamless business transfer guarantees business as usual for ongoing projects and existing customers.”

    Patrik Kobler, Accountable Manager and Managing Partner at groWING.aero, said: “We are proud to have the opportunity to acquire an established organization with the excellent reputation of SR Technics. We are looking forward to new encounters with customers, employees, and our two new managing partners Randolph Odi and Oladimeji Olukolu and the coming joint successes.”
