Lufthansa Technik Component Services (LTCS), headquartered in Tulsa, Okla., has significantly expanded its portfolio of technical services for aircraft components and plans to grow even further.
LTCS says it “has bundled all its services for the repair and supply of aircraft components at this site in the heart of the American continent, with the result that the square footage of its workshops and warehouses has significantly increased in recent years.” In addition to component services, the company now also offers services for the disassembly of aircraft and the sale of their components and engines.
“With our expanded service offer in the center of one of the world’s most important aviation markets, we can meet the needs of our customers on site in the Americas even better,” said Dr. Thomas Stueger, Lufthansa Technik chief executive Product and Services, after a meeting elected officials in Oklahoma on 1 August in Tulsa. “For this reason, we definitely see potential for a further expansion of our service portfolio for the American market at this successful location.”
Oklahoma Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb said: “Lufthansa Technik’s decision to expand its business in the Tulsa area is wonderful news for the state’s thriving aerospace sector, and proof of Oklahoma’s strong business climate for growth. We are proud that Lufthansa Technik Component Services is finding tremendous success in Oklahoma and we look forward to building upon our great partnership with this company.”
President and CEO of LTCS Michael Scheferhoff says he is satisfied with the company’s prospects and the increasing demand for its services: “Thanks to the outstanding support and close cooperation we enjoy with Component Services from Lufthansa Technik Group, we have a very broad product portfolio at our disposal and logistics services that span the whole world.”
“The great support we have received from the state of Oklahoma, the city of Tulsa and the Tulsa Metro Chamber has contributed terrifically to our success. We would like to thank everybody involved very sincerely for that, and we hope to continue our teamwork in the future,” adds Dirk Ripa, chief commercial officer at LTCS.
Tulsa Metro Chamber President and CEO Mike Neal stated: “Lufthansa Technik’s continued growth in the Tulsa region will have a significant impact on the economy of northeast Oklahoma. We thank this industry leader for its commitment to the Tulsa region and for its important contribution to our thriving aerospace sector.”
