Aero Norway, an independent engine MRO provider for CFM56-3, CFM56-5B and 7B engines, announced the appointment of Klaus-Peter Leinauer as a new director of Sales & Marketing. He will support Aero Norway’s growth strategy and focus on best-in-class service for its expanding global customer base.
Leinauer joins Aero Norway with more than twenty years’ experience in the engine MRO industry having worked at SR Technics for seven years with responsibility for sales in Europe, Russia and the CIS. His appointment will spearhead a program of continuous improvement within their sales team facilitating efficiency and enhancing working relationships says the company.
Aero Norway touts their independence as a key catalyst behind the company’s accelerated growth. “Being an independent specialist engine MRO with more than 25 years’ as an approved CFM repair station enables it to focus on delivering exceptional customer care alongside industry renowned EGT margins,” a press release says.
“We welcome Klaus to the sales team where his deep industry knowledge and firm relationships with airlines and lessors will help steer our ever-growing customer support efforts worldwide” says chief business officer, Rune Veenstra. “Our strengths lie in the personal touch, we have the ability – and the flexibility – to deliver quality engine MRO to the highest level on time, every time – that is the message he will share.”
“The draw of Aero Norway for me is that it is a specialist ‘boutique’ engine MRO making its mark on the industry. In comparison to some of competitors we have a slightly smaller operation, but this is a great advantage when every MRO offers a similarly competitive price,” says Leinauer. “At Aero Norway customer service is the priority and this is our differentiator, we are well positioned in the market to offer bespoke solutions and more for our customers across every continent. With a growth trajectory in place that is seeing many more engines coming in from Asia and Africa, alongside our nucleus of European programmes, I look forward to utilising my experience to expand Aero Norway’s global network and promote its increased capabilities.”
