Lufthansa Technik Aero Alzey (LTAA) has taken a substantial step towards expansion by inaugurating a new 1,500-square-meter hangar.
The new building, spanning three levels, is aimed at enhancing the company's production capabilities and accommodating the increasing demand for engine overhaul. The new facility, situated within LTAA's existing premises, will serve as a temporary storage space for engine parts and large tools. Its primary objective is to enable LTAA to process a greater number of engines simultaneously, aligning with the company's strategic goals for future growth.
Matthias Gruber, CEO of LTAA, commented on this milestone, stating:
"The addition of this new space marks an important milestone in our path towards future growth. Despite the challenges faced over the past three years, including the recent crisis, we have managed to retain a significant portion of our highly skilled workforce. We are thus well positioned to serve the high demands of the market and to continue on a course of growth." Tobias Baumgart, COO of LTAA, adds: "This expansion creates space and allows us to use the existing production areas even more efficiently."
In addition to expanding its physical infrastructure, LTAA is also venturing into advanced technologies. The company will invest in a waterjet system to bring certain outsourced services in-house, offering an environmentally friendly method for removing coatings from engine parts on-site.
