Metrojet Engineering Clark (MEC) officially
opened for business this week.
MEC is a joint venture between
Metrojet and CAPP Industries Inc. of the Philippines, and is the
first overseas venture for the company.
Located at the Diosdado
Macapagal International Airport (DMIA) in the Clark Freeport Zone
near Pampanga, 40 miles north of Manila in the Philippines, MEC is
a new Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) facility designed to
expand both the heavy and line maintenance capabilities from its
Hong Kong base.
The new facility is housed in more than 13,000
sq. ft. of hangar space with a 6,400 sq. ft. office building. It
will offer a comprehensive range of aircraft
services and support, including a
dedicated document control area within the hangar, large bonded
stores, a fully equipped avionics shop, as well as sheet metal and
tire shops. There is also a plan to develop a cabin interior
refurbishment capability depending on potential needs.
Bjӧrn Nӓf, CEO of Metrojet, said, “The launch of MEC is an important milestone in our
journey. The Clark facility not only marks the beginning of an
international expansion for us, but also allows Metrojet to take
advantage of the forecasted growth projections for business
aviation in Asia. Metrojet will be able to offer clients, both
existing and new, an additional MRO to maintain their aircraft to
the highest international standards. We will continue to develop
and expand this facility to accommodate the rising demand in the
South East Asia region, and to deliver operational excellence to
our clients and partners.”
