Bombardier is investing to expand its Singapore service centre in order to enhance its presence in the growing Asia-Pacific region.

With the investment, the maintenance facility at Seletar Aerospace Park will be transformed into a high-capacity centre that will offer on-site maintenance, refurbishment and modification services.

According to Bombardier, the expansion will allow the Singapore Service Centre to become the largest original equipment manufacturer (OEM) owned business aviation maintenance facility in Asia.

As part of the expansion, the company will add a paint facility and parts depot, as well as expand the facility’s full-service interior finishing shop.

“This expansion is another key building block in our drive to enhance the accessibility of our OEM expertise for customers worldwide.”

Once the expansion is completed next year, the service centre will be able to accommodate more than 2,000 visits a year.

Bombardier Customer Experience vice-president and general manager Jean-Christophe Gallagher said: “Our high-capacity, optimised Singapore Service Centre will bring industry-leading aircraft availability, faster turnarounds and greater convenience and peace of mind to Bombardier’s growing customer base in Asia.

“Customers will enjoy access to the complete range of OEM customer service and support right on their doorstep, 24/7, 365 days a year.

“This expansion is another key building block in our drive to enhance the accessibility of our OEM expertise for customers worldwide and to solidify our position as a leader in aftermarket services in the Asia-Pacific region, a pivotal growing part of our global network.”

The footprint of the service centre will increase from the existing 100,000ft² to 430,000ft².

The expanded facility will also offer key support functions such as training, sales and customer support and an expanded portfolio of component, repair and overhaul (CR&O) services.

Customers will also have access to heavy structural and composite repair capabilities at the centre.

Last year, Bombardier announced that it is building an expanded service centre at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport in a bid to bolster its North American maintenance capabilities.
