Werner Aero Services has added more engine nacelles for CFM56-5Bs and CFM56-7Bs at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport. “Our main focus is supporting the narrowbody aircraft A320 and 737NG,” explains Werner CEO Mike Cazaz. “The assets located in Europe are comprised of thrust reversers, inlet cowls, fan cowls and common nozzle assemblies for engines models V2500A5, CFM56-5B and CFM56-7B.”
Cazaz says Werner has initially positioned only a few nacelle sets, but “as business progresses and demand increases, we plan to increase the level of stock in this region.” At present about 25% of Werner’s nacelle assets are now located in Europe.
Cazaz says he has seen very strong demand for nacelles for some engines, for example the V25000 and CFM56-5. But demand for some others has been flat. “But we expect a rise in demand in all models in the near future. As equipment ages and aircraft stay in service longer, the demand for these assets is projected to increase significantly.”
Meanwhile, Werner is expanding. It recently introduced an APU leasing service and is planning to branch out in this market. Its leasing of green-time engines is expanding as well to other markets. Werner now has assets in various locations in the U.S., in Europe and in Singapore. The company has just under 50 employees but expects this count to increase within the next two years.
Cazaz emphasizes that Werner is a full-service aviation asset management company that offers nacelles as well as other engine and aircraft assets. “We are a global company with our nacelle assets strategically located throughout the world to provide fast turnaround times and cost-effective solutions. Additionally, we offer expertise in repair management of any nacelle components.”
