Opening event in Schkeuditz!

Celebration of the new location of HEICO Aircraft Maintenance.

On June 12.06th, the ceremonial opening of our new facility in Schkeuditz near Leipzig took place. Among the invited guests were representatives of the airlines, business partners, representatives of the city and administration, and of course the company's employees. It was a special event that essentially expressed the importance of the new location for the company. The importance of the new hall for the future means not only more capacity, but also the latest technologies and improved working conditions for all employees.

During a tour, all guests were able to see the services for themselves at various stations: structure repair, composite repair, non-destructive testing (ndt) and the paint booth, with its enormous dimensions, were presented, explained and introduced by the teams with great commitment. Each station offered interesting insights into the different work areas and the modern equipment in the workshop.

After the tour, the celebration continued in the beautifully designed outdoor area in glorious weather, current topics from aviation were discussed and, in a good mood, the new facility was toasted. The event was a complete success - the new premises offer an excellent basis for future growth and success of HEICO Aircraft Maintenance as a leading MRO provider in Europe.

With 5.000 square meters of hall space on a plot of 18.000 square meters, this modern workshop is built to the latest standards. Particularly noteworthy are the sustainable and environmentally friendly technologies that have been integrated into the new building. A large fire water cistern and an infiltration pond for large amounts of rain have been created. A planting of 12 large deciduous trees, maple and linden, as well as extensive planting of small shrubs have been created. A photovoltaic system produces 300 kilowatts peak, which is of course used by the company itself, excess capacity is fed into the grid, and two electric charging stations have also been installed to support e-mobility. The employees are happy with the large work areas and common rooms.
