Liebherr-Aerospace Expands Service Capacities in the U. S.

Liebherr-Aerospace Saline, Inc. is enhancing its aftermarket service capacities with the fifth expansion since 1993. Spanning 33,000 ft² (3,065 m²), the new expansion will adjoin the existing heat transfer facility, which commenced operations in 2016.

The new facility will cater to Liebherr-Aerospace Saline’s growing heat transfer aftermarket demand of testing, repair, overhaul, and recore capacity for Liebherr products installed on Airbus, Boeing, Embraer, Mitsubishi, and Bombardier aircraft. Additionally, the new facility will accommodate the internal movement of certain other products, thus increasing the required landing gear processing capacity at the main facility.

Recognizing Liebherr-Aerospace Saline’s as well as the global success of Liebherr’s heat transfer activities, Alex Vlielander, chief customer officer at Liebherr-Aerospace & Transportation SAS, said: “The positive and overwhelming acceptance by our customers of the heat transfer servicing set-up in Saline has allowed us to expand our offerings worldwide, thus validating our strategy to be close to our customers. Furthermore, by expanding the network we are shortening the overall Turn Around Time by eliminating transportation time, cutting down on cost and lowering our carbon footprint.”

Will Dew, managing director commercial at Liebherr-Aerospace Saline, Inc. added: “It’s also imperative that we recognize the sustaining contributions of our employees. This impressive milestone combined with our summer employee appreciation event acknowledges their resilience and innovation which continues to anchor the success of the company.”
