Jet Aviation Basel refurbishes Maintenance shops and expands capabilities
Jet Aviation Basel has expanded and refurbished its Engine, Wheel and Non-Destructive-Testing shops to increase production capacities.
All three shops were doubled in size, reorganized and outfitted with new materials and equipment. The expansion and refurbishment further includes large new storage rooms, a meeting room, office space and a library. A new in-house water purification system has also been installed to recycle water from wheel and NDT activities.
"Along with the restructuring of the shops, we developed and introduced new work processes," said Arjen Boone, senior director of MRO Supply Chain Management and Support Operations at Jet Aviation Basel. "The shops are now better coordinated to help improve efficiency, meet our strategic business objectives and ultimately enhance customer focus and service quality."
The company plans to further expand its Engine repair capabilities in the near future. Its engine shop currently supports Honeywell TFE 731, CFE 738, HTF7000 and Honeywell APU GTCP engines.
To ensure off-site customers have access to parts and maintenance when and where required, Jet Aviation operates a spare parts and 24/7 global repair service with dedicated AOG experts at each maintenance location. The parts shop at Jet Aviation Basel maintains an extensive inventory of spares in addition to consignment stock from Gulfstream, Dassault, Honeywell and Universal.
