Bombardier announced this week it has completed its acquisition of an aircraft service center at the Berlin Brandenburg Airport in Berlin, Germany. By acquiring outstanding shares from Lufthansa Technik AG and ExecuJet Aviation Group AG, Bombardier can now to operate a wholly-owned service center in Berlin. The acquisition is part of a transition the company announced late last year to become a “pure-play business aviation company.” Bombardier is also developing a new OEM-operated center in Melbourne, and has undertaken similar service-related projects at facilities in Miami, London, and Singapore.
Part Of The Team
Bombardier says the Berlin service center has provided MRO (maintenance, repair, overhaul) services since 1997 to Bombardier business aircraft customers. More than 240 employees work at the facility, which includes more than 160,000 square feet (15,000 square meters) of space to service Learjet, Challenger, and Global business jets operating out of Europe, Russia, Africa, and the Middle East. The Berlin center was notably the first in Europe to perform maintenance on Bombardier’s Global 7500 business jet, Bombardier says.
“We welcome the highly talented employees of the Berlin Service Centre to the Bombardier service network,” says Chris Debergh, Bombardier vice president of OEM parts and services. “We value their expertise and customer focus—as part of the Bombardier team, they will continue to provide best-in-class aircraft maintenance services to our valued operators of Bombardier business aircraft.”
