Lufthansa Technik sharpens focus on Asia
Lufthansa Technik is strengthening its commitment to the growth market of Asia with the founding of Lufthansa Technik Component Services Asia Pacific. At the same time, a new location for component supply has been established in Hong Kong. The new warehouse offers a wide-spanning network for customer support in the Asian region along with the existing locations in Singapore and Narita.
In the new company, 30 employees will be responsible for local customer support in the Asia Pacific region, in addition to ensuring they are optimally supplied with materials. Customers will benefit from one contact in the same time zone as well as the personal connection.
The close proximity to Lufthansa Technik Shenzhen, the local maintenance organization of the Lufthansa Technik Group, is an advantage for the warehouse located at the Hong Kong Airport. Transport times and costs for material in need of repair can be minimized while maximizing availability.
Lufthansa Technik already has numerous contracts with Asian airlines, primarily in the North Asian market. As an independent MRO organization, Lufthansa Technik has been present in the region for many years.
The establishment of the location in Hong Kong is part of the strategic alignment of the Lufthansa Technik Component Services product division which, in addition to the regions of Europe and the Middle East, is also planning to expand its growth primarily in America and Asia.
In addition to the locations in China, Lufthansa Technik Component Services already includes the American maintenance organization Lufthansa Technik Component Services in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with warehouses in Fort Lauderdale, San Francisco and New York (JFK).
