As part of a move to reinforce its aftermarket support capability in Southeast Asia, Dassault Aviation is acquiring ExecuJet’s maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) business at Subang Airport, Malaysia.
ExecuJet Malaysia is part of ExecuJet’s global MRO network, which Dassault agreed to purchase earlier this year. Under Dassault ownership, ExecuJet MRO Services will maintain its separate identity and leadership team and continue serving aircraft of all types.
The 64,000-square-foot Subang facility is the largest business aviation MRO in Malaysia and supports aircraft from a number of different manufacturers, based both within and outside the region. Following its acquisition by Dassault, the facility is in the process of adding Falcons to its list of supported models.
ExecuJet Malaysia will provide Falcon customers a choice of service facilities and complement Dassault’s pre-existing support network in the region, including authorised third party service centres and a regional sales office in Kuala Lumpur.
“Malaysia is an important centre for business aviation and our largest Southeast Asian market. It is expected to achieve further growth in the future,” said Dassault Aviation Asia Pacific president, Jean-Michel Jacob. “To anticipate this growth, Dassault Aviation decided it was important to have a factory -owned service centre in the region.”
