AeroTek receives Approval from SAFRAN for MRO processes

AeroTek is pleased to announce that the Company has received approval from SAFRAN, manufacturer of aerospace landing gear, to provide Maintenance Repair and Overhaul services for SAFRAN landing gears, including tear down, cleaning, inspecting, recoating & refinishing parts.


In the future, AeroTek will be providing reassembly services as requested by the customer.

“This is a new process that AeroTek has never provided before. Our MRO team has been trained by SAFRAN and approved by the OEM to provide these MRO services for SAFRAN landing gear and components. I am very pleased with the performance of the team and look forward to seeing new business coming through AeroTek’s doors. It’s great to see a shiny finished part leaving the AeroTek facility compared to when it arrives at the plant from our customers. We have come a long way over the past few years, with everyone working exceptionally hard to achieve this result. We have been working hard, year on year, to achieve better scores each year by improving our processes and personnel training practices, ensuring consistent quality results. This year’s audit was the best we’ve done so far. I’m very happy for the team. It means that AeroTek is working extremely efficiently now and our performance is truly at a high professional level.” – CEO/President Jonathan Schofield
