Lufthansa Technik AG has confirmed its plans to open a new repair and overhaul facility for aircraft engine parts in Miskolc, Hungary. The operational site will extend to 20,000 square meters of production space, greatly benefiting customers of Lufthansa Technik´s Engine Parts & Accessories Repair (EPAR) network. Once fully operational, the facility will employ up to 400 members of staff and will encompass state-of-the-art machinery for procedures such as cleaning, thermal spraying and heat treatment of engine parts, but also an extensive training and qualification program.
Construction at the new site is planned to begin in 2021. Training and qualification courses for its employees will already begin in 2019 and will partly take place at the existing sites of the EPAR network in Germany, Ireland, Malaysia, China and the USA.
“As the fourth-largest city in Hungary, Miskolc offers a great number of highly-qualified technical experts and moreover a good infrastructure”, said Philip Mende, Head of Engine Parts and Mobile Engine Services at Lufthansa Technik. “We look forward to building Lufthansa Technik Miskolc together and adding the new colleagues to our worldwide network.”Email Post to a Friend
