Airbus Helicopters began operations at its new maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) logistics centre in Tremblay-en-France, northeast of Paris, on 25 January.
The 13,400m2 facility was created by Airbus as a centralized base to streamline all logistics activities related to helicopter component repair, including the receipt, screening, control, storage and distribution of MRO parts.
The centre puts all Airbus MRO logistics references under one roof for the first time
The centre comprises over 12,400m2 of logistics space, with capacity for over 30,000 units, as well as 1,000m2 of office space, and will be staffed by 200 employees from Airbus and its logistics partner Daher, managing an expected volume of around 200,000 incoming and outgoing flows annually.
The centre is close to Paris Charles de Gaulle airport, as well as to the resources of aerospace repair companies at the facility, offering potential opportunities to further improve services offered to Airbus and Daher’s international customer base.
“The completion of this state-of-the-art MRO logistics facility supports our long-term ambition to put all our MRO logistics activities under one roof, to optimize our flows, and to deliver a level of reactivity in line with customers’ expectations,” said Christoph Zammert, Executive Vice-President of Customer Support and Service at Airbus Helicopters.
