Since announcing the grand opening of its new, larger helicopter service center in Singapore facility last August, StandardAero has continued to make substantial investment in its operations dedicated to supporting the Rolls-Royce M250 engine program, strengthening its commitment to the Asian Helicopter Market.
In six months, since its opening, StandardAero has invested over $3M in the facility with nearly $1.5M in equipment/tooling upgrades and over $1M in building improvements designed to enhance the look as well as workflow ergonomics, keeping service throughput times to a minimum. The company also made a significant people investment, spending over $100,000 in training and development in 2012. Equipment upgrades include test cells, cleaning lines, FPI/MPI, bearing inspection, accessories test stands, waste storage facility, gas farm, blasting equipment, individual workstations an computer equipment.
“StandardAero is committed to ensuring M250 excellence in the region,” said Manny Atwal, Vice President, Helicopters, StandardAero. “We hired one of the industry’s best in lean manufacturing and operations management in Raghu Reddy. Raghu continues to infuse best practices throughout the facility ensuring our operations perform as efficiently as possible with zero compromise in the quality of service and customer satisfaction for which StandardAero has long been known.”
As a result of StandardAero’s investment in its Singapore facility, the company has been nominated for Rolls-Royce’s 2013 FIRST Network M250 Program Investment Award, acknowledging facilities with the most investment to improve their unique contribution to the M250 program, and provide improved customer service.
