The controllers have been designed and manufactured by Liebherr.

Under this agreement, AFI KLM E&M Components China joins Liebherr’s service network in China to provide test, repair and overhaul the relevant Liebherr products, including during the OEM warranty period. The two parties can offer tailored solutions and reliable local repair services on the Liebherr products to Airbus operators in China. Joël Cadaux, director Business & Service – Customer Services at Liebherr-Aerospace & Transportation SAS, pointed out: “Both parties are driven by common long term support commitment in China, combining OEM expertise, MRO service and local support.”

With the continuous growing of the Airbus fleet in China, AFI KLM E&M Components China and Liebherr will seek further cooperation to provide better services to their respective customers in the country. Based in Shanghai, AFI KLM E&M Components China, a wholly-owned subsidiary of AFI KLM E&M, was launched in 2013, with avionics components repair as its initial activity. AFI KLM E&M Components China was certified by the CAAC in November of the same year, then obtained EASA Part 145 approval in 2015, and an FAA 145 repair station license in 2017.
