UTC Aerospace Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp. and a key supplier of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner program, and Lufthansa Technik AG have announced a long-term agreement for maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services for UTC Aerospace Systems interiors products, sensors and integrated systems on the Boeing 787 aircraft. The agreement builds upon a previous contract between the two aerospace service providers and expands Lufthansa Technik's capabilities as a licensed MRO provider for UTC Aerospace Systems on the Boeing 787.
"UTC Aerospace Systems has remained committed to building a global MRO network to enhance customer support for our products on the 787, and we've been successful in doing this through our strong partner network," said Jim Patrick, Vice President of Customer Service for UTC Aerospace Systems' Power, Controls and Sensing Systems segment. "We have developed a strong relationship with Lufthansa Technik over the years, and we are pleased to build upon our relationship to include a wider range of service and support that spans the UTC Aerospace Systems portfolio."
Gerald Steinhoff, Director Business Development at Aircraft Component Services of Lufthansa Technik added, "This agreement is another milestone on Lufthansa Technik's way as a leading provider of component MRO services for the Boeing 787. We are now ready to develop and apply sophisticated repairs on the vast majority of Boeing 787 component technologies."
Lufthansa Technik and UTC Aerospace Systems' working relationship on Boeing 787 MRO services began in 2011, with Lufthansa Technik acting as licensed MRO service provider for a number of UTC Aerospace Systems components.
