China’s Ameco is expanding its component maintenance business by investing an undisclosed amount in its Beijing and Chengdu facilities.
The Air China-Lufthansa MRO joint venture renovated its wheel and brake workshop in Chengdu last month to optimize production flow and cater for a growing number of third-party customers.
In Beijing, Ameco says it has completed a 300 square meter extension of its wheels and brakes facility, which includes adding a second production line of fluorescent penetrant inspection along with adding Boeing 787 capabilities in 2016.
This year, Ameco plans to add similar capabilities for the Boeing 737MAX, Airbus A350 and Airbus A320neo with a growing emphasis on third-party work.
It also confirmed renovation work on the landing gear facility in Beijing will also begin in 2017.
