MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) through a collaboration with homegrown global player Dviation Group of Companies will set up Southeast Asia’s first maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facility that can handle the full life cycle of aviation assets will be set up in Subang Airport.
In a statement today, MAHB said the new facility is expected to offer end-to-end aftermarket services including MRO, aircraft teardown, aircraft material recycling and parts trading.
The initiative, which is also a part of the Subang Airport Regeneration plan, aims to elevate Malaysia’s competitive landscape by building partnerships with internationally recognised Malaysian-based aviation solution providers.
MAHB added that the new facility will further strengthen Subang Airports’ position as a preferred MRO hub in the region as it has the potential to capture a significant part of the US$3.64 trillion aftermarket services market share in Asia Pacific (APAC) in the next 20 years for Malaysia.
“This collaboration is built upon the foundation of Dviation’s expertise in technical training and manpower solutions in aviation, and other related approved trainings.
“Furthermore, it presents opportunities to strengthen the aerospace ecosystem which will result in increased skilled labour for the industry,” it noted.
