News regarding GE Aviation’s new facility in Malaysia piqued readers’ interest last week (GE Aviation Invests in Malaysia Facility to Support LEAP Engine Advancement): "John Flannery, chairman and CEO of GE, recently reaffirmed the company’s continued commitment to Malaysia with an $80 million investment in GE Aviation’s Malaysian engine services facility. GE also announced the establishment of the Global IT Service Desk located at its headquarters in Kuala Lumpur.
"GE Aviation’s Malaysian engine services facility will enter into a long-term tenancy agreement with Impeccable Vintage Properties, a wholly owned subsidiary of Malaysia Aviation Group Berhad, subject to terms to be mutually agreed in relation to GE’s Subang facility. This long-term tenancy agreement is part of the facility’s plans to invest in tooling, testing, and skills capabilities to support the maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) of CFM International’s LEAP engine.
"The LEAP engine, produced by a 50/50 joint venture between GE and Safran Aircraft Engines powers aircraft such as the Boeing 737 MAX, Airbus A320neo and Comac C919 single-aisle jets. The MRO work on LEAP will reportedly introduce the next chapter of engineering excellence for the Subang workshop, making it the first such facility outside the U.S. for GE."
