03/03/2021 Liebherr Celebrates Over Twenty Thousand Repairs of Aerospace Components in China
Liebherr’s footprint in China reached a new milestone with the delivery of its 20,000th unit repaired in the region.
The repair of a flow control valve for an Airbus A320 that belongs to a Chinese operator marks a milestone for Liebherr in China.
Over the past five years, the company has been investing in the development of a growing range of OEM maintenance services on air management systems (ATA Chapters 21 and 36) for various airlines operating Airbus single aisle and long range as well as Bombardier and Embraer aircraft. OEM quality one-stop component maintenance services were also launched for the domestic COMAC ARJ21-700 aircraft operators.
As part of these aerospace services in China, Liebherr built a robust team of more than 40 highly qualified employees consisting of customer service representatives, sales, technical support, quality, procurement and logistics experts. Additionally, its state-of-the-art MRO workshop in Shanghai is staffed with repair technicians, engineers, certifying officials and repair instructors. The site is fully supported by Liebherr-Aerospace centers of excellence in Toulouse (France) and Lindenberg (Germany). This strong collaboration between sites enables the extension of aerospace services for operators in the region.
Delivering the 20,000th repaired component back to a Chinese airline, represents an important milestone for the Liebherr customer service team in Shanghai. Since 2016, the site has more than tripled the number of units repaired - a testament of the company’s commitment to continuously supporting operators in their daily maintenance needs while adapting a growing market. The team in Shanghai is unwaveringly committed to quality and growth, while focused on the safe operations of China’s civil aviation.
