Tempe, Ariz. – August 18, 2010 – In August, StandardAero’s Maryville facility delivered its 5,000th auxiliary power unit (APU) since the program started in 1995. StandardAero’s APU program in Maryville focuses on repair of Honeywell 36 and RE220 series engines as well as Hamilton Sundstrand APS2300 units for commercial airline and military operators via their OEM relationships. The site is a one-stop shop that not only repairs the APU but all Line Replaceable Units (LRU’s) associated with the APU. Focused on repair versus replacement of parts, StandardAero works to reduce life-cycle costs of operation for its customers through increased reliability, and industry leading turnaround times.
“This milestone is a testament to the efforts of our entire team in Maryville,” said StandardAero Maryville Vice President and General Manager, Tim Fischer. “Their focus on continuous improvement and commitment to the customer drives the value we strive to bring to our customers everyday.”
The 5,000th unit delivered was a Honeywell GTCP36-150RJ for a commercial customer.
“This milestone reinforces our solid position in the market place,” said StandardAero Maryville APU Program Director, Randy Mengel. “I am proud to be a part of a team dedicated to quality and performance.”
