SR Technics is increasing its presence and capabilities in the Asia Pacific region with a new airworthiness certification from the Civil Aviation Authority of China (CAAC) for its Malaysia operations in Kuala Lumpur. The certification will enable SR Technics Malaysia to certify components for customers within the Chinese market. Additionally, SR Technics Malaysia will be able to complete component repair work on Airbus and Boeing aircraft in China for customers requiring CAAC certification.
According to the MRO, this certification is an important milestone since SR Technics is expanding its component services in China and the Asia Pacific region. Last year, SR Technics CEO Jeremy Remacha told Aviation Week that the independent MRO is continuously evaluating new market opportunities to strengthen its global presence, especially in the Asia-Pacific market.
The Malaysia facility, which opened in 2014, serves as SR Technics’ customer center for component services in the region. The location includes a component maintenance service center for modification, overhaul, repair and testing of aircraft and engine components.
In addition to CAAC certification for SR Technics Malaysia, SR Technics Switzerland renewed its existing CAAC certification. The company says this will allow it to continue granting Chinese airworthiness certificates from its Swiss maintenance facilities.
