Maastricht Airport, The Netherlands
In 1982, Collins Aerospace expanded and diversified its presence in The Netherlands, creating a dedicated maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) service center at Maastricht Airport. This campus is dedicated to MRO of aircraft components, such as composite propeller systems, hydromechanical and electronic fuel control systems, fuel pumps, air management systems and lighting products. These flight critical components are installed on a wide range of civil and military platforms, such as twin and single aisle jet aircraft, regional jets and turbo props as well as helicopters. Building on the expertise of a team of over 120 well-trained technicians, Collins Aerospace has developed a strong culture of customer service excellence. Annually over 9000 components are serviced with utmost care and strong quality focus, committed to keeping turn-around-times low. From this Maastricht hub in the ‘heart of Europe’, Collins Aerospace supports over 300 individual customers including major airlines, regional operators, governmental and military customers, large and small maintenance and repair organizations, as well as distributors covering North and South America, Middle-East, Europe and Asia-Pacific. Together, we keep aircraft in the air and on time!
