StandardAero recently completed the successful consolidation of the company’s Winnipeg, Manitoba, helicopter center of excellence (COE), after accelerating the final phase of integration of helicopter MRO engine operations into one site.
In addition, the company’s transition program included the integration of two additional COEs located in Langley, British Columbia, and Summerside, Prince Edward Island, to support helicopter airframe/component MRO services and turboprop engine MRO services, respectively. The two-year COE restructuring program was originally expected to be completed by the end of 2020.
“The early completion of our COEs was a key element to ensure organizational efficiency and increase our capability to respond more effectively to the dynamic and uncertain market conditions that currently affect customers’ operations anywhere in the world,” said Claus Eisenschmid, vice president and general manager of the Winnipeg Helicopter COE. “Our overall strategy and commitment is to be the most trusted partner for MRO services.”
To further support customers, the company also invested additional resources in facility improvements and acquired a brand new test cell supporting Rolls-Royce M250/RR300 helicopter engines.
