The Upper Austrian aviation supplier was able to conclude a contract with engine manufacturer Pratt & Whitney Canada for the maintenance, repair and overhaul of fan cases.

The new agreement covers the repair and overhaul of fan cases for P&WC's PW800 turbo-fan engine family. For FACC, this new agreement with P&WC represents an important milestone, as the company is now developing into a full-service component supplier in addition to the production of engine components. The contract, which runs for several years, is very important to FACC.

“P&WC is a global leader in the manufacture and service of aircraft engines. We are very pleased to be able to take our collaboration with this very important customer to a new level and also establish ourselves as a provider in the MRO sector,” says FACC CEO Robert Machtlinger, underlining the importance of the agreement.

The engine components are overhauled at the FACC locations in Upper Austria, which have a high level of expertise in the production and maintenance of high-tech components in composite construction. The repair of the engine components began this September.
