Leki Aviation is expanding its repair capabilities with a new 8,000-sq.-ft. facility in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The Part 145 repair facility—called Leki Tech—joins a new repair facility the company opened just outside London, earlier this year. According to Leki Aviation, the new facilities further the company’s ability to offer repair services on a more global level.
“With the vision of consolidation and stronger implementation of our services, the repair capabilities are now being brought in under the Leki Aviation umbrella and offered through our new repair facility, Leki Tech, in both the United Kingdom and USA,” says Peter Kjeldsen, COO, Leki Group.
Previously, Leki Aviation’s repair services were offered through its sister company in the UK, 25+ Repair Centre. A spokesperson for Leki Aviation says that although the fundamentals and operational processes of 25+ Repair Centre will continue to exist, all repair business moving forward will be conducted under the Leki Tech branding.
According to Kjeldsen, making repair capabilities an integrated part of Leki Aviation will add value to its customers in addition to moving the company toward its strategic vision. “This step is a huge progress in continuously enhancing and strengthening our 360 Degree Fleet Support concept, as it adds further versatility to the services we can offer and how we partner up with our clients on a strategic basis,” he adds.
Earlier this year, the company expanded its Consolidated Material Management Solutions service concept to include ground support equipment and general aviation segments. Although the company is not sharing specifics at this time, a spokesperson for Leki Aviation says the company already has the blueprint for future expansions.
