Today, Fokker Services Asia celebrates the opening of its new centre of excellence for heavy maintenance and support of regional aircraft platforms at Seletar AeroSpace Park in Singapore. The new 80m free span hangar and office complex can accommodate 3 regional aircraft. Fokker Services Asia currently has capabilities to maintain Fokker and ATR models and will be adding capability for another platform in the course of this year.
This marks the first phase of an ambitious growth plan to take advantage of future opportunities in the Asia Pacific region as increasing deregulation, economic growth and improving infrastructure drive growth in regional aviation. With future plans including the expansion of logistic services, and the setting up of component repair capabilities in Singapore, it further demonstrates Fokker Services’ long term commitment to the Asia Pacific region.
Raj Ramanujam, Managing Director Fokker Services Asia states “I’m very proud to welcome existing and new customers in this brand new state-of-the-art facility. It will allow us to further grow the business, building on the foundation we have laid since we set up Fokker Services Asia in 1997.”
“Dr Beh Swan Gin, Managing Director of the Singapore Economic Development Board said: “We are pleased that Fokker Services continues to expand its presence in Singapore. The new facility will build additional capacity, and also enable Fokker Services Asia to offer integrated services for the regional aircraft market segment. This will complement our MRO capabilities in commercial aviation, and reinforce Seletar Aerospace Park’s role as a key infrastructure to support the growth of Singapore’s aerospace industry.”
