Dassault Aviation is acquiring ExecuJet’s
maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) business at Subang Airport
in Malaysia in a move that will considerably reinforce its aftermarket support
capability in Southeast Asia.
64,000-square-foot Subang facility is the largest business
aviation MRO in Malaysia and supports aircraft from a number of
different manufacturers, based both within and outside the region.
Following its acquisition by Dassault, the facility is in the process of adding Falcons to its already impressive list of
“Malaysia is an important center for business
aviation and our largest Southeast Asian market. It is expected to
achieve further growth in the future,” said Dassault Aviation Asia
Jean-Michel Jacob. “To anticipate this growth,
Dassault Aviation decided it was important to have a factory-owned service center in the region.”
ExecuJet Malaysia is part of ExecuJet’s global
MRO network, which Dassault agreed to purchase earlier this year.
The network includes operations in Africa, Europe and the Middle
East as well as the Asia Pacific region.
ExecuJet Malaysia will provide Falcon customers
a choice of service facilities and complement Dassault’s
pre-existing support network in the region, including authorized
third party service centers and a regional sales office in Kuala
