Greater Capabilities and Space to Serve Asia
Collins Aerospace is investing more than $27 million to nearly double the size of its MRO operations in Xiamen, China and quadruple the size of its MRO footprint in Selangor, Malaysia. This additional capacity will help bring faster turnaround times and more efficient service to Collins’ customers in the region.
In Xiamen, Collins will invest more than $11 million to relocate its MRO operations from their current 50,000 square-foot facility to a new 80,000 square-foot facility. The expanded site will provide MRO services for multiple Collins products, including fuel control systems, engine vane actuators, helicopter rescue hoists, evacuation slides and avionics, among others. The facility will support Chinese platforms like the ARJ21 and C919, as well as the B787, A350, A330neo, general aviation and rotary wing aircraft.
In Selangor, Collins will invest more than $16 million to relocate its MRO operations from their current 40,000 square-foot facility to a new 160,000 square-foot facility at Subang Aerotech Park. The company’s Malaysian operations were previously dedicated to supporting MRO for Collins environmental control systems, but as part of the expansion the facility will add new MRO capabilities for Collins air cycle machines, heat exchangers, engine starters, valves, propellers and actuation systems. The site will support a variety of aircraft, including the B787, B777X, A320, A380, ATR 42 and ATR 72.
