Commercial Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO)
MTU Aero Engines' commercial maintenance, repair and overhaul activities are pooled under the roof of MTU Maintenance. The company operates locations in all major markets and is the world's largest independent provider of commercial MRO services. This market is also served by the OEMs and the airlines, alongside independent specialists the likes of MTU.
MTU Maintenance repairs engines manufactured under programs in which the company is a risk- and revenue-sharing partner. In addition, the Group also supports engines manufactured by other engine makers. MTU Maintenance thus offers a comprehensive range of services and full-package solutions for all major types of engines in virtually all thrust categories; in addition to aero engines, it also has industrial gas turbines in its portfolio.
In its MRO activities, MTU is committed to its motto that "Repair beats Replacement", restoring damaged parts wherever possible rather than replacing them with costly new parts. With the repair technologies it has developed in-house, the company achieves levels of restoration that are unique worldwide. Thus, for instance, MTU is capable of repairing even extremely heavily worn parts.
MTU Maintenance is well positioned for future growth. The repair portfolio comprises a large number of engine programs promising strong growth, such as the V2500 for the A320 family of aircraft, the CFM56, the GE90G and the CF34. MTU has established a strong foothold also in regional markets, having built a strong presence especially in Asia. Its excellent operational capabilities reflect in short turn-around times, high flexibility, and a sharp customer focus. The list of the company's MRO customers includes airlines around the globe.
