Aug. 20, 2014, Winnipeg - StandardAero’s Component Services has expanded its component repair and development facilities with the addition of new capabilities at its Winnipeg, Man. campus.
The Winnipeg facility will be known as SACS-Canada and the Cincinnati facility will be referred to as SACS-USA. The expanded SACS-Canada facility will provide a substantial increase in StandardAero’s component repair offerings to meet the growing market and customer demands for customized component repair solutions — completely aligned with and authorized by the major OEMs for both aviation and industrial gas turbine powered engines and accessories.
In addition to already serving operators of CF34, CFM56, CF6, GE90, V2500, and LM1600/2500/6000 engines, SACS will now serve customers for T56, M250 and 501k engine applications. StandardAero is also improving its in-house offerings for component repair and support for PW2000 and PW4000 customers, with the addition of a world-class plating capability at its SACS-Canada facility.
“Investing in these expanded facilities and capabilities will allow us to keep pace with the requirements we see for component repair and development both today and in the near future,” said Rick Stine, President of StandardAero Military & Components sector. “At the same time, we are continuing to invest in our engineering expertise to ensure we can provide customer repair development solutions that support both OEMs and our end customer requirements.”
In May of this year, StandardAero announced a 30,000 square foot expansion of its Composite Processing and Repair Centre at SACS-USA, to include new equipment and processes for the repair and overhaul of various composite components including fan cases, acoustic liners, stationary air/oil seals, spinner cones, fan platforms, outer guide vanes and vane booster assemblies and many other composite-based parts and materials.
In addition, SACS has expanded its sales team to cover the needs of global customers by hiring new team members located in Asia, Europe and North America regions of the world.
