Heston MRO, the largest independent MRO organization in Australasia, extended its presence into Europe.
The newly established subsidiary, Heston MRO Europe, will start immediate offering of Components Support and Asset Management services to airlines and asset owners. The company is planned to operate local European warehouses and have AOG support and logistics teams located next to its European customers and suppliers.
‘Heston MRO realizes that the pace of aviation recovery varies significantly between different regions’, comments Asta Zirlyte, CEO of Heston MRO. ‘It has always been in our plans to expand geographically beyond our home region in Australasia, following the actual needs of airline customers and asset owners. Faster post-Covid recovery in the Northern Hemisphere repositioned our strategic goals and accelerated that decision. We have established our presence in Europe to capture the local MRO opportunities driven by the recovering travel.’
‘Based in the European Union- Lithuania, Heston MRO Europe will aim to service operators and asset owners in EMEA and CIS markets’, says Kestutis Volungevicius, CEO of Heston MRO Europe. ‘Having started with Components and Asset Management solutions, we aim for organic customer driven expansion into other adjacent MRO offerings like engineering services, engines solutions, and other technical support services’.
Heston MRO Europe has tailored its Components and Asset Management solutions for narrow body aircraft, covering B737 and A320 families through spare parts support, AOG coverage, asset part-outs and trading. The company is seeding its European stock with own part-out projects and partnerships with asset owners.
