MRO company NORDAM announced it has moved its Asia-Pacific facility to Taoyuan International Airport. The company recently celebrated the completion and grand opening of NORDAM Asia Limited, its new 5,828-square-meter aircraft component repair facility. NORDAM Asia Limited is a joint venture with China Airlines, the flag carrier of Taiwan.
Based in the US city of Tulsa, Oklahoma, independently owned NORDAM provides maintenance, repair and overhaul of component parts for the commercial and military aviation industry. The company previously provided these services to the Asia-Pacific region from Singapore for more than 20 years. In 2017, it entered an arrangement with existing customer China Airlines to create efficiencies and share access to local resources, transitioning NORDAM’s repair facility from Singapore to Taiwan to establish NORDAM Asia Limited.
“Taiwan is well positioned geographically, and many of our customers find the new location will simplify logistics, which helps control repair costs,” NORDAM Asia Limited Chairman T. Hastings Siegfried said. He added that Taiwan has a positive industrial environment, reliable infrastructure, a good technical workforce, and a strong supply base for tooling, logistics and other key commodities. NORDAM specialises in providing repair services and support for customers around the globe. Working together with China Airlines, we are improving access for all those in the need of repairs and support in the Asia-Pacific region to choose our unparalleled expertise as a more cost-effective option.”
“We have aligned our shared interests to develop, build and operate a cost-effective repair hub, capitalising on affordable Taiwanese costs and impressive infrastructure,” said Su-Chien Hsieh, chairman of China Airlines.
