Spirit AeroSystems has announced a planned expansion of its aftermarket presence in the Asia-Pacific region by signing a joint venture agreement with Evergreen Aviation Technologies Corporation (EGAT). The new agreement is expected to complement Spirit’s recent acquisition of Applied Aerodynamics and last year’s acquisition of select Bombardier assets, and further strengthen its global maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) capabilities.

Under the joint venture agreement, Spirit and EGAT will form a new company, Spirit Evergreen Aftermarket Solutions (SEAS), and will transfer repair capabilities to SEAS, increasing manufacturing expertise and services to meet growing fleet demands in the region.

Previously, Spirit entered into a multi-year agreement with EGAT in September 2020 in which Spirit provided maintenance services in the Taiwan facility on products the aerostructures company manufactures, including the 777 GE90/Trent800 nacelle, 737 CFM56-7B thrust reverser, and flight control surfaces along with broader nacelle MRO services on the CF6-powered aircraft and A320. By enhancing this existing commercial agreement with a joint venture agreement, Spirit and EGAT will continue working to expand capabilities to better service customers in the region.
