Lufthansa Technik is to establish a new site for the repair and overhaul of aircraft engine parts, with construction planned to begin in 2021.
The company has acquired property in the Hungarian city of Miskolc for the new fully-owned subsidiary of Lufthansa Technik, dubbed ‘Lufthansa Technik Miskolc’. The subsidiary will utilise around 20,000 square meters of production space.
The company said customers of the Engine Parts & Accessories Repair (EPAR) network will benefit from the extended production capacity.
“As the fourth-largest city in Hungary, Miskolc offers a great number of highly-qualified technical experts and moreover a good infrastructure”, said Philip Mende, head of Engine Parts and Mobile Engine Services at Lufthansa Technik. “We look forward to building Lufthansa Technik Miskolc together and adding the new colleagues to our worldwide network.”
Lufthansa Technik Miskolc will employ around 400 people. Training and qualification courses for employees begin in 2019 and will partly take place at the existing sites of the EPAR network in Germany, Ireland, Malaysia, China and the USA.
