Goodrich Opens New Maintenance, Engine Buildup and Supply Chain Management Facility in China

Goodrich Opens New Maintenance, Engine Buildup and Supply Chain Management Facility in China

CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Goodrich Corporation (NYSE:GR) yesterday opened a new facility in China’s Tianjin Airport Industrial Park to support nacelle and thrust reverser original equipment as well as maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) activities. The 50,000 square foot facility will perform nacelle and thrust reverser MRO work for customers in the region. In addition, it will support engine buildup and podding work for the new Airbus A320 Family aircraft final assembly line in Tianjin. The facility is part of Goodrich’s Aerostructures business.

The facility serves as an interim location; in 2010 Goodrich plans to open a 170,000 square foot permanent facility in Tianjin directly across from the Airbus final assembly line.

Greg Peters, president, Goodrich Aerostructures, said, “This new facility in Tianjin demonstrates Goodrich’s commitment to serving our customers with speed and ease in two distinct ways. We will be able to provide Airbus with complete engine assemblies ready for installation on their new A320 aircraft assembled in Tianjin. And we will supplement our existing MRO footprint in Asia, currently centered in Singapore, to better support customers in fast-growing China.”

The new facility will also serve as the headquarters for Goodrich’s supply chain activities in China.

Goodrich Corporation, a Fortune 500 company, is a global supplier of systems and services to aerospace, defense and homeland security markets. With one of the most strategically diversified portfolios of products in the industry, Goodrich serves a global customer base with significant worldwide manufacturing and service facilities.
