OEMServices celebrates opening of new Service Center in Dubai – Jebel Ali Free Zone
OEMServices has celebrated the opening in Dubai of its new service center dedicated to the aerospace market. Located in Jebel Ali Free Zone (JAFZA), near Dubai (DWC and DXB) and Abu Dhabi (AUH) airports, this new center will benefit from a strategic location in the Middle East. “In the name of OEMServices, I am very proud, in front of such a prestigious audience, to celebrate the opening of this new service centre, in cooperation with one of our shareholders, Liebherr-Aerospace. This development highlights how OEMServices has been growing for a few years, in particular in the Middle East region. This modern facility is now a new step and the opportunity for OEMServices to consolidate our position in this strategic region and develop a wider range of services corresponding to the evolving needs of our customers,” declared Didier Granger, President of OEMServices. The nearly 1000 m² warehouse, fully furnished and air-conditioned, will host the OEMServices operations (AOG Desk and Customer Support 24/7/365) and storage of aircraft parts. This platform will support the growth of expected airline fleets in the region, with the progressive introduction of new aircraft types during the year (Airbus A350 XWB and Boeing 787). The platform will serve as the coordination center between the original equipment manufacturers station networks and airlines. OEMServices is a joint venture founded by four major OEMs: Diehl Aerospace, Liebherr- Aerospace, Thales and Zodiac Aerospace.
