Lufthansa Technik Component Services (LTCS) in Tulsa, Okla. continues to grow by expanding into additional capabilities. Recently, the company received the approval of the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC). The Chinese authority has approved LTCS as an “adequate organization to accomplish maintenance of components.” Additionally, LTCS has become the 33rd design department of Lufthansa Technik’s EASA 21/J Design Organization (DO) and the first one in the Americas.
The DO status allows LTCS to create their own approved data. “This is a big step forward in developing further repair methods to improve the component services of the company,” Lufthansa Technik says. The company hopes this status will help their customers with shorter turnaround times, reliability improvements and from overcoming material obsolescence.
“In 2017 the idea was born, that LTCS should have their own design engineers to be as flexible as possible in a constantly changing aftermarket environment. After two years of training and mentorship program, LTCS is very proud to start this new chapter with three Design Engineers,” said Tobias Baumgart, COO of Lufthansa Technik Component Services.
More than 680 employees are employed at its eleven locations throughout North, Central and South America. The company offers a comprehensive bandwidth of Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul services for aircraft components. The maintenance of commercial aircraft components encompasses a wide range of services from repairs of single components all the way to a complete material management system with access to Lufthansa Technik’s comprehensive component pool.
