NORDAM celebrated the completion and grand opening today of NORDAM Asia Limited, its new 5,828-square-meter aircraft component repair facility at Taoyuan International Airport. NORDAM Asia Limited is a joint venture with China Airlines, the flag carrier of Taiwan. Local government and aviation industry dignitaries joined executives from both companies for an opening ceremony, followed by a reception.
Based in the U.S. city of Tulsa, Oklahoma, independently owned NORDAM is a world leader in the maintenance, repair and overhaul of component parts for the commercial and military aviation industry. The company previously provided these services to the Asia-Pacific region from Singapore for more than 20 years. In 2017, it entered a synergetic arrangement with existing customer China Airlines to create efficiencies and share access to local resources, transitioning NORDAM’s repair facility from Singapore to Taiwan to establish NORDAM Asia Limited.
“Taiwan is well positioned geographically, and many of our customers find the new location will simplify logistics, which helps control repair costs,” NORDAM Asia Limited Chairman T. Hastings Siegfried said. He added that Taiwan has a positive industrial environment, reliable infrastructure, a good technical workforce, and a strong supply base for tooling, logistics and other key commodities.
