GKN Aerospace Ships Engine Components from Malaysia Facility

GKN Aerospace has shipped the first aero-engine components from its site in Johor, Malaysia. The CFM56 low-pressure compressor components have been delivered to an Asian engine MRO service provider.

It may be recalled that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued the base certification to GKN Aerospace’s Johor facility in Malaysia for the repair of CFM56 aero-engine parts earlier this year. Site certification process for additional FAA certifications is on track.

The Johor site today employs approximately 70 people and will be the GKN Aerospace Repair Centre for customers in the APAC region, servicing engine low pressure compressor (LPC) components for CFM56-5B, CFM56-7 and V2500. The facility will complement GKN Aerospace’s existing component repair facility in San Diego, CA.

The site  will also be home to additional capabilities including research and development activities around the application of additive manufacturing technology into engine parts repair.

“The Malaysian operations team managed to successfully receive, repair, overhaul and release customer parts on a new site, under challenging Covid19 circumstances with a great turnaround time,” said Fergus Lopez, site director at GKN Aerospace Malaysia.

“This is a true milestone,” said Doug Ramey, global director of sales and customer support. “GKN Aerospace is committed to expanding and growing our global repair business for aero-engine parts. The Malaysia facility will offer our APAC customers a regional, reliable source and real time customer service for fan blades and fan component parts repair.”
