“We see great potential in the repair and maintenance business, which is also reflected in a 200% growth achieved at our US site in Wichita,” says Robert Machtlinger, CEO of FACC.

Major investments are being made in the location, expanding the surface area to 60,000 square feet. With its MRO services, FACC Solutions Inc. addresses airlines, MRO stations, spare parts and service providers, as well as OEMs (aircraft manufacturers) in North, Central and South America. The new area, which is situated close to the present factory, is expected to be in use by early June.
