Goodrich has entered into an agreement with easyJet to provide nacelle and thrust reverser Maintenance Repair and Overhaul (MRO) work.
The 10-year contract covers work for the easyJet fleet of B737-300, -700, and A320 family. The nacelle and thrust reverser MRO work will be performed at the company’s Prestwick, Scotland Service Centre.
‘We’re pleased to be providing this new MRO work to easyJet. It’s a continuation of our strong relationship. This contract is also evidence of the growth potential for our Prestwick-based MRO operations,’ said Curtis Reusser, President of Goodrich’s Aerostructures division.
‘We have just broken ground on a new 120,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art facility. The site’s location allows us to easily service not only European customers, such as easyJet, but also Middle Eastern and African customers. Starting next June, the new facility will be up and running,’ added Reusser.
An existing Goodrich Prestwick facility is situated one mile from the site of the new construction.
This new MRO contract follows Goodrich’s recently announced wheel and brakes and services agreement with easyJet for their A320 family, one of the largest combined product and services agreements within the European marketplace.
