Aircraft modernisation, repair and maintenance company FACC has announced its partnership with international parts distributor and service provider Leki Aviation.
FACC’s services range from high-tech lightweight components for space to service and repair offerings for airlines and aircraft operators. Growth opportunities are very high according to the company particularly in the aftermarket services segment.
“The market for maintenance, repair and overhaul in civil aviation is making a noticeable recovery. Thanks to our innovative solutions, we have been able to establish an excellent position in this field in recent years, and are thus ideally equipped for the future,” says Robert Machtlinger, CEO of FACC.
The number of passenger aircraft worldwide, currently around 23,000, is expected to double to around 46,000 in the next 20 years, the company says, with demand for service and repair services growing rapidly. By 2030, the global market volume is set to exceed $180 billion, compared with approximately $70 billion at present. According to FACC, the Chinese growth market is particularly attractive.
Leki Aviation operates two branches in China and, thanks to its proximity to major Chinese airlines, occupies an outstanding position in the largest and most important growth market in the aircraft industry. Whenever airlines need a spare part for one of their aircraft, they will in future rely on components produced by FACC.
Leki Aviation has a total of nine locations worldwide, including four distribution centres and two repair stations.
