Liebherr-Aerospace and AEM sign deal for E-Jet MRO


Liebherr-Aerospace and AEM have announced they have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for cooperation on state-of-the-art landing gear maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services to Embraer E-Jet E1 operators in the EUMEA region.

Riding on the stable high market demand for MRO landing gear services in the EUMEA region, the partnership enables Liebherr-Aerospace to off-load contracted landing gear work to AEM, a highly qualified and well established MRO landing gear provider based in Ramsgate (UK). This agreement will increase the number of available overhaul slots for E-Jet E1 aircraft, while the reliability of the service offer will be backed through the partnership between Liebherr-Aerospace and AEM.

Christian Franz, Director Customer Service of Liebherr-Aerospace Lindenberg (Germany), explained: “For our customers, this partnership generates more flexibility and availability in planning and selecting overhaul slots, which will optimise the fleet operation of our E-Jet E1 customers.”

Andy Wheeler, DVP and Managing Director of AEM, commented, “AEM is delighted to partner with Liebherr-Aerospace to supply E-Jet landing gear overhaul services.  Our Ramsgate team has many years of experience in providing the quality of service that Liebherr-Aerospace’s customers demand.  This partnership further cements AEM as a leading landing gear maintenance provider and complements wider landing systems capabilities offered by AMETEK MRO.”
