The huge growth of ATR turboprop aircraft market in the Asia Pacific (APAC) has prompted Skyways Technics A/S, a Denmark based maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) specialist, to expand its facility in Malaysia.

Regional manager (Asia) Lucas Ansinelli said Malaysia offered a great environment for Skyways Technics to further expand its component MRO activities in APAC.

“Subang has been our preferred choice since we started here in 2014, and it remains a strategic location which will continue to attract more and more MRO companies,” he told Bernama.

Subang is the company’s first footprint outside Denmark — catering to the APAC market specifically for spare parts, component repair, and aircraft on ground services for ATR and CRJ aircraft.

During the Singapore Airshow recently, Skyways Technics signed a partnership agreement with Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd for the expansion of its facility in Subang.

The new facility, located at the MRO Centre in Subang Aerotech Park, will be ready next month and serve as its regional headquarters.

“We chose Malaysia because it made a lot of sense cost-wise. It is strategically located, and all the facilities around the Subang airport are fantastic for small and medium enterprises.”
