Defence and security company Saab has signed an agreement with Germany’s Liebherr-Aerospace Lindenberg GmbH to provide maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services for landing gear equipment across the complete Embraer E-Jet family of regional aircraft.
Saab's business area Support and Services has a well-known and long-established expertise within the field of aircraft component maintenance. Saab is now adding a new strand to its capabilities by providing landing gear service and support for Embraer’s E-jet regional jet family (the E170 and E190 series).
Based in Lindenberg, Germany, Liebherr-Aerospace Lindenberg GmbH is the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for the Embraer E-Jet’s landing gear. Saab sees its agreement with Liebherr-Aerospace as an important, strategic move for future business.
The agreement with Liebherr-Aerospace allows Saab to acquire and maintain updated technical documentation for E-Jet family landing gear equipment in order to perform maintenance services for the equipment.
“We already have a great deal of experience in conducting maintenance on the landing gear of various aircraft and this agreement gives us wonderful opportunity to expand those operations, as we now can offer maintenance, repair and overhaul services to the entire E-Jet market”, says Anders Skålehed, Director of Marketing and Sales for MRO, at Saab´s Business Area Support and Services.
