The French APU and landing gear MRO provider has started construction of a new facility in Chonburi, Thailand.
Revima, the French APU and landing gear MRO specialist, has held the ground-breaking ceremony for a new landing gear overhaul facility in Chonburi, Thailand.
The 12,000m2 facility will focus on Airbus A320, Boeing 737 and ATR family landing gears. It will be equipped with state-of-the-art machines and will include all necessary special processes for full in-house repair & overhaul of landing gears.
The Asian expansion operation confirms plans announced in January 2018.
Digitally connected from its machines to its technical documentation, warehouses, monitoring and customer communication systems, the facility will be environmentally friendly, with zero-rejection waste water management systems and advanced fire detection and suppression technology.
The facility will employ up to 300 employees, and represents an investment of over $30m.
Thailand will become the company's regional customer support hub for Asia-Pacific, says Revima CEO Olivier Legrand. The company aims to have the facility fully certified and ready to ship to customers by the first quarter of 2020.
