Monarch Aircraft Engineering (MAEL), the independent MRO provider, is opening a new Component Maintenance Centre in Northampton in September 2018.
The new Centre, in which MAEL has invested approximately £2 million, is being located in Northampton because it is mid-way between its Luton and Birmingham base maintenance facilities, and on the motorway network within four hours’ drive of all of its UK line maintenance stations.
20 people will work at the new Component Maintenance Centre, with 10 new jobs being created. The Centre will be led by Lee Burgess, MAEL’s Head of Maintenance.
Chris Dare, Managing Director at Monarch Aircraft Engineering, said: “Our new Northampton facility will enable us to more effectively and efficiently support our burgeoning line and base maintenance facilities across the UK
MAEL has permanent year-round stations at 9 airports across the UK where it provides line maintenance support including all levels of maintenance on Airbus, Boeing, Embraer and Bombardier aircraft types.
