NORDAM announces expansion, partnership with China Airlines
16 Nov 2017
A partnership with China Airlines will establish NORDAM Asia Limited with a facility in Taiwan that will repair structural aircraft components for the Asian airline’s fleet as well as others.
NORDAM recently hosted a ceremony welcoming a contingent of partners from China and the Taiwanese Ministry of Economic Affairs, celebrating the continued partnership and a renewed pact to continue the relationship as NORDAM expands.
T. Hastings Siegfried, NORDAM’s vice chairman and chief operating officer of its international joint ventures and for the Asia-Pacific region, said the agreement allows an expansion of NORDAM’s existing footprint in the region.
“NORDAM specializes in providing ‘in-manual’ component repairs as well as innovative ‘out-of-manual’ repairs for customers around the globe,” Siegfried said. “Working together with China Airlines, we are improving access for all airlines in the Asia-Pacific region to choose our unparalleled expertise as a more cost-effective option.”
The new facility in Taiwan is expected to break ground next year with completion in 2019, employing about 100 there as well as more support jobs at the Tulsa headquarters.
The announcement alongside China Airlines came weeks after NORDAM CEO Meredith Siegried Madden announced an agreement with Airbus to supply the engine build-up systems. The agreement represents NORDAM’s largest potential contract to date, which could eclipse $1 billion in value over its duration.
