This new FDR/CVR licence agreement provides additional workscope approvals allowing further penetration into OEM-centric markets in Asia and Europe for those customers requiring OEM only material through the utilisation of strategically located facilities in Singapore and the United Kingdom.

David Corish, Divisional Vice President & General Manager of AMETEK Singapore PTE, emphasises the Company’s core strategy of supporting both legacy and new platforms with best-in-class solutions for customers. “This agreement expands our long-standing relationship with Honeywell and strengthens our presence in the market. Honeywell has confidence in our OEM-trained technicians and our extensive history of customer support. Importantly, AMETEK MRO offers a highly diverse range of sustainable OEM support programmes and we are passionate about keeping units on-wing and back to serviceable condition as quickly as possible.”

Corish explained that Singapore is a very active region for partnerships and collaborations and according to market data, it will dominate global growth trends: "AMETEK MRO Singapore has the financial backing it needs to prioritise innovation and expand capabilities for new and older platforms. The organisation’s multi-skilled and agile workforce is geared-up to align with the objectives of OEMs as they concentrate on the technology of tomorrow."

The provision of comprehensive maintenance solutions, particularly in regions such as Asia Pacific where European and US based MROs continue to seek a collaborative approach to provide viable repair options from a logistics point of view, is a cornerstone of AMETEK MRO’s business.

At the Singapore Airshow, Eric Ai, Vice President of APAC Airlines at Honeywell Aerospace Technologies commented: "As Honeywell continues to forge strategic alliances to advance our aerospace capabilities, we are excited to embark on this meaningful partnership with AMETEK. Their commitment to maintenance excellence aligns seamlessly with Honeywell's dedication to delivering high-quality solutions. Together, we look forward to providing airline customers around the region with exceptional service and safety standards."

Corish added: “Establishing repair partnerships and agreements with leading OEMs like Honeywell enables us to provide an enhanced level of support in-region as flight hours rapidly grow. Legacy carriers, low-cost airlines, regional operators, business jets and military opportunities are all integral to our long-term plans.
