On September 20, 2022, Liebherr-Singapore was able to celebrate with its guests the achievement of various important milestones at the same time:

The company extended its capabilities regarding the repair of high performance aerospace hydraulics as well as the full overhaul and re-coring of aircraft heat transfer equipment.

“In 2016, Singapore was lauded as the ‘Aerospace City of the Future” by the ‘Financial Times’. Within the same year, we had our groundbreaking and signing ceremony for the Singapore expansion of our compressor building. The Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) has been very supportive of our expansion plans as early as 2017, and this has continued till today, regarding the expansion of our in-house capabilities for our Aerospace department. Many meetings were held locally and overseas to discuss these possible expansion plans. In conjunction with these plans, EDB's support has also extended to training and development programs for our employees. With the support of our partners, Liebherr-Singapore looks forward to continually excel and grow in Singapore and the greater APAC region,” explained Mr. Albert Chua, Managing Director Liebherr-Singapore Pte Ltd in his speech during the ceremony.

“Since 1985, we have continuously invested not only in our location, but also in our employees. They are the ones who implement our long-term strategy in the Asia-Pacific region and contribute significantly to the steady success of Liebherr-Singapore with their professional expertise and commitment,” highlighted Mr. Daniel Wonschak, Managing Director Liebherr-Singapore Pte Ltd in his speech.

These latest capability expansions extend to the installation and commissioning of a new high performance hydraulic test cell in Singapore as well as the setting up of a fully competent repair and overhaul shop for aircraft Heat Transfer Equipment. Thanks to the excellent collaboration with Liebherr-Aerospace’s own centers of excellence in Lindenberg (Germany), Toulouse (France) and Saline, Michigan (USA), these major milestones were successfully accomplished according to the customized requirements of Liebherr-Aerospace’s regional service center in Singapore.

This substantial investment enables the company to offer state-of-the-art repair capabilities for a further extended scope of Liebherr components to APAC customers. It also underlines once more Liebherr’s commitment to the region and service excellence for its customers in Asia-Pacific.

“The expansion of our Aerospace MRO capacities is one of the key elements for continuous extension of the customer support and services portfolio of our Singapore Service Center. It enables us to service even more components in-house and in region, thus eliminating logistic routings and in parallel reducing turnaround times”, emphasized Mr. Ekkehard Pracht, General Manager Aerospace, Liebherr-Singapore Pte Ltd.

Since 1995, Liebherr-Singapore Pte Ltd is home of Liebherr-Aerospace’s dedicated service center in the Asia Pacific region, providing product support and services for the products of the Original Equipment Manufacturers Liebherr-Aerospace Lindenberg GmbH (Germany), competence center for flight controls, landing gears as well as gears and gearboxes and Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse SAS (France), competence center for air management systems.
