The 50/50 joint venture between Lufthansa Technik and MTU Aero Engines, EME Aero, Engine Maintenance Europe service center,has completed the aviation authority certification process and obtained EASA 145 certification as a maintenance organization on 12th December, 2019. Site completion and the official open-ing of the company is planned for spring 2020.

This certification is a prerequisite for EME to start operations and work for customers around the world. The company will initially perform shop visits for the Pratt & Whitney PW1100G-JM GTF engine model. In the following years, the PW1500G and PW1900G models will be added to EME’s portfolio.

EME Aero was founded less than two years ago. Since then, the company has completed var-ious milestones in the course of building one of the largest and most advanced MRO service centers for Pratt & Whitney Geared Turbo Fan engines worldwide. Both shareholders have in-vested nearly 150 million EUR. The shop, which is based on an efficient flow line principle, is designed for an annual capacity of up to 450 shop visits. The EME Aero workforce will also gradually grow as the numbers of in-service GTF engines increase. By 2026, EME is expected to have a workforce of around 1,000 employees.

Since the plot acquisition in March 2018 in Jasionka near Rzeszów, Poland, these twenty months have been devoted to the construction of a high-tech facility with one of the most modern test cells currently on the market. A professional organization has been established with a quality management system and the creation of a strong EME Aero employer branding in the local Podkarpackie region. By the end of 2019, there will be more than 235 employees on board who have been professionally trained in EME Aero Training Center and at the share-holders’ sites in Germany.
