Astronics Connectivity Systems and Certification (CSC) has entered into a long-term agreement with Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Company Limited (HAECO Group). Under the agreement, the two companies will establish a service center to provide Astronics and its airline customers with Line Replaceable Unit (LRU) services in China and Asia Pacific.
“As our Summit line of IFEC products experiences increasing demand in the Asia Pacific and China markets, we sought a partnership to enable a regional component service and repair center to deliver localised support for these customers,” said Michael Kuehn, president of Astronics CSC. “We’re happy to announce the appointment of HAECO and look forward to continuing to strengthen this relationship.”
HAECO Group subsidiary HAECO Component Overhaul (Xiamen) Ltd. will establish a fulfilment center to provide specialised engineering and component services, including test, maintenance and repair of Astronics CSC’s Summit in-flight connectivity LRUs.
Clement Au, general manager of HAECO Component Overhaul (Xiamen) said, “We are excited to begin a business partnership with Astronics CSC. With our combined technical expertise and vast experience, we are confident that the Component Services Centre will provide reliable, high quality in-flight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC) product maintenance services to airlines in the Asia Pacific region.”
