MTU Maintenance inaugurated a new logistics center at its Ludwigsfelde site today. The company has invested 11.5 million euros in the new building, which totals 6,500 square metres of operating space across two levels and can house 105 employees. The relocation of all relevant departments to the new building is scheduled for completion in September this year.

The expansion became necessary due to continual growth within the company. This applies not only to the number of employees but also to the volume of business and the engine models in the site's portfolio. Engine deliveries out of Ludwigsfelde increased by 12 percent from 2016 to 2018.  MTU Maintenance Berlin-Brandenburg has also increased its employee count by more than a quarter over the past three years, and the company now employs a total of 838 people. 

Managing Director and Senior Vice President André Sinanian commented on the facility’s milestone: “This logistics center is not just another building, it also enables us to have a perfectly organized logistics chain that is essential for efficiency and competiveness in our maintenance operations.” 

Martin Friis-Petersen, Senior Vice President, MRO Programs, MTU Aero Engines adds: “For engine operators, minimizing downtime is key – and we strive to achieve that for them.  As an in­de­pen­dent ser­vice provider, our fo­cus is on giv­ing the cus­tomer that lit­tle bit more so they come to us. We have to go the ex­tra mile. This new infrastructure and, in turn, capacity, enables us to do exactly that.” 

MTU Maintenance Berlin-Brandenburg has set up a mobile repair team for the PW800 engine, built up repair capabilities for the low-pressure turbine and added component repairs for the PW1100G-JM engine to its portfolio since 2018. The introduction of further engine programs is already in preparation. As a first step, mobile repair capabilities for the PW307A/D are to be built up by 2020. The engines will be used in business jets Dassault Falcon 7X and 8X respectively.
