February 2019: Liebherr-Aerospace, a leading supplier of systems for the aviation industry, and Max Aerospace, a leading Indian maintenance organization based in Mumbai, announced the signature of a cooperation agreement covering repair and maintenance of components as well as maintenance and overhaul of heat exchangers.
Under the terms of the agreement, signed during Aero India 2019 in Bangalore, Liebherr-Aerospace renews an already existing repair license on Airbus components and supports Max Aerospace in developing industrial capabilities dedicated to heat exchangers manufactured by Liebherr for Airbus aircraft. Max Aerospace will thus join Liebherr-Aerospace’s worldwide network for heat exchanger maintenance.
Joël Cadaux, Director Business & Services – Customer Services, Liebherr-Aerospace & Transportation SAS, said, “We see India to evolve as one of the world’s major aviation markets, including MRO activities. The partnership with Max Aerospace is key to support locally the Indian operators with Liebherr OEM quality, jointly with our office based in Bangalore and our Liebherr-Aerospace’s regional service center based in Singapore.”
Bharat Malkani, Chairman and Director of Max Aerospace & Aviation Ltd., added, “The coming together of both organizations brings world-class service for Liebherr components at the doorstep of aircraft operators in India and the surrounding region. We see this as an opportunity for establishing a firm and sustainable footprint for support of Liebherr components. Coupled with the encouraging growth in the aviation sector, we shall look to grow this partnership to include maintenance of many more Liebherr products.”
