Magnetic MRO, a global provider of Total Technical Care for aircraft operators and lessors, has announced the launch of its Representative Office in Kuala Lumpur. The company’s new office will focus on developing new customers and partners in South East Asia.
The Kuala Lumpur-based team will focus on the introduction of Magnetic MRO services in the local market by developing Technical Training, Engineering and DOA solutions for Malay, Indonesian, Singaporean, Thai, Vietnamese and other aircraft operators and maintenance organizations in the region. In addition, Magnetic MRO will provide local airlines, MROs and other market players with scheduled and AOG aircraft spare parts supply.
“Asia Pacific is the fastest growing market in aviation – both aircraft fleet and MRO-wise. Having well-established operations in Europe and being already present in the Chinese MRO market, it is a natural decision to start the development in yet another direction – South-East Asia,” said Inga Douglas, Chief Commercial Officer at Magnetic MRO.
Being focused on Total Technical Care, Magnetic MRO plans to eventually expand the range of services offered for SEA customer, covering Line Maintenance, Engine Management, Asset Management, Aircraft Teardown, Aircraft Transition Management, PBH programs, and other products.
“The capital of Malaysia is well situated in terms of good access to other countries in the region. It is also convenient for Part 147 training customers who will be able to reach our training facilities within just a few-hour flight. In future, we might also consider launching Heavy Maintenance or Aircraft Painting facilities in the region – either on our own or in cooperation with local partners,” added Douglas.
Currently, Magnetic MRO operates at almost thirty locations worldwide, including Miami, London, Amsterdam, Tallinn, Dubai, Guangzhou and Kuala Lumpur.
