Goodrich Corporation (NYSE:GR) will unveil its new 530,000-square-foot aircraft component and systems maintenance and repair campus on Wednesday February 20, 2008 during the Singapore Airshow 2008. The official opening event will be attended by Goodrich's customers, industry teammates, senior executives and other guests from the Singapore Economic Development board and the aerospace community.
The new campus, located next to Changi Airport, brings together several Goodrich service businesses under one roof and adds an additional 300,000 square feet of manufacturing space. It offers a full range of Maintenance Repair and Overhaul (MRO) services for components and systems for both commercial and military aerospace customers from across Asia, Australia and the Pacific Rim. Services will cover a broad range of aircraft including new and future models such as the Airbus A380, Boeing 787 and Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II. MRO capabilities include aircraft nacelle systems, flight controls, cargo systems, engine controls and components, actuation systems and aircraft evacuation systems.
As well as providing MRO services to the region's airlines and military fleets, the facility is performing original equipment manufacturing as well as research and development activities. Recent projects include designing, developing and producing the fan cowl for the Geared Turbofan test engine.
The campus represents a $23 million investment by Goodrich. It currently employs roughly 700 people and is the corporation's largest MRO campus.
