Lufthansa Technik Aero Alzey (LTAA) has inaugurated a new 1,500-square-metre hangar in Rheinhessen.
According to LTAA, the new facility which is situated within LTAA’s existing premises is aimed at enhancing the company’s production capabilities and accommodating increasing demand for engine overhaul. it will also be used as temporary storage space for engine parts and large tools. However, LTAA says that its primary objective is to enable LTAA to process a greater number of engines simultaneously, aligning with the company’s strategic goals for future growth.
Matthias Gruber, CEO of LTAA, said: “The addition of this new space marks an important milestone in our path towards future growth. Despite the challenges faced over the past three years, including the recent crisis, we have managed to retain a significant portion of our highly skilled workforce.
“We are thus well positioned to serve the high demands of the market and to continue on a course of growth.”
Tobias Baumgart, COO of LTAA noted: “This expansion creates space and allows us to use the existing production areas even more efficiently.”
LTAA is also investing in advanced technologies such as a waterjet system to bring certain outsourced services in-house that offers an environmentally friendly method for removing coatings from engine parts on-site.
