KUALA LUMPUR – ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia, a wholly owned subsidiary of Dassault Aviation, had the grand opening today of its purpose-built maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facility at Subang Airport.

The facility area is 149,500ft2, making it Malaysia’s largest business aviation MRO centre. It is more than twice the size of ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia’s previous operation (opened in 2009) and serves business jet operators from across Asia, reinforcing the country’s status as a centre for MRO for a rapidly growing regional business aviation market.

Guests of honour included: YB Anthony Loke, Minister of Transport for Malaysia along with Jean Kayanakis, Senior VP Worldwide Falcon Customer Service & Service Centre Network at Dassault Aviation and Graeme Duckworth, President of ExecuJet MRO Services Group.

“Today’s opening marks a pivotal moment for ExecuJet MRO Services’ presence in the region,” said Duckworth. “I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Malaysian Government, Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad and Dassault Aviation for their unwavering support for this expansion project. Without their assistance, we wouldn’t be here.”

“We are expanding support  for operators of multiple aircraft brands across the region. The Subang facility is key to that strategy.”

ExecuJet MRO Services Group started in South Africa in 1991 and then expanded internationally. Besides Malaysia and South Africa, it also has MRO facilities in Australia, New Zealand, UAE and Belgium as well as a franchise in China.

ExecuJet MRO Services invests heavily in training its personnel to be internationally certified, so it is approved to perform line and heavy maintenance on aircraft registered with regional civil aviation authorities together with FAA and EASA, whether on Falcons, Bombardier and Gulfstream aircraft. There is new training space at Subang to further these authorizations and grow the workforce. Ivan Lim, Execujet MRO Services’ Regional VP Asia said the company expects to grow the Subang workforce from 84 to 100 by year end and to continue growing over the next five years.

Kayanakis added: “ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia is playing a major role in Falcon support in the Asian region and helps Dassault Aviation offer a uniformly high level of Falcon service worldwide.”

Mr. Sikh Shamsul Ibrahim bin Sikh Abdul Majid, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA), celebrated the inauguration of the new facility with high praise. He remarked: “The comprehensive MRO solutions provided by ExecuJet MRO Services will greatly enhance Malaysia’s stature as an ideal location for aerospace companies aiming to expand in this region. We are excited to witness the positive influence this facility will have on our aerospace ecosystem and remain committed to supporting ExecuJet in their expansion journey. It is, indeed, a force to be reckoned with.”
