FL Technics, a global provider of one-stop-shop aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul services, has successfully finished a two-year long business development project. Over the period of project implementation, the company invested almost EUR 6 million into high tech maintenance equipment and created more than 200 new jobs in the company's MROcentre in Kaunas, Lithuania.

Following the successful implementation of the project, the company has significantly optimized its processes, both time- and resource-wise. Meanwhile, the acquisition of a ground power unit has enabled the company to provide in-house power supply for aircraft on the ramp, and thus eliminated the need to buy respective services from the airport.

During the course of the past two years, FL Technics has been actively focusing on the streamlining of its processes, hence the technological focus of the long-term investment, the company said in a statement.

The investment has significantly expanded the capabilities of the company's MRO centre in Kaunas. The centre is capable of serving all major types of modern narrow- and wide-body aircraft, including Boeing 747 and Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The MRO base has already created jobs for 219 aviation professionals, including aircraft mechanics, engineers and other aviation technical personnel. Having started in August 2013, the project was partially funded from the EU structural funds.
