Täby Air Maintenance (TAM), the Swedish Saab aircraft MRO specialist, has confirmed it will look to grow its capabilities, capacity and workforce this year after winning a string of new contracts in 2016.
In a statement issued on Tuesday (Jan 10.), the company’s managing director Pär Gulle said TAM consolidated its position among the world’s leading service partners for the Saab 340 and 2000 aircraft by adding new customers including Swiss SkyWork Airlines and Cyprus’s TUS Airways.
The new customers were in addition to longstanding partnerships with carriers including Loganair and Eastern Airways. As a result, Gulle said growth is on the agenda for 2017.
“We are now gearing up in order to be able to serve more customers in a wide range of capabilities, meaning that we are planning for additional capacity for weekends and evenings as well as expanding our workforce,” said Gulle.
“Our recent Saab 340 cargo conversion orders, in addition to a notable maintenance order backlog, will enable us to further develop and enhance our customer offerings.” Based in Örebro, TAM holds EASA Part 145 and FAA Repair Station approvals.
