Bombardier (BBD.B) has expanded its Singapore Service Centre to become the largest OEM business aviation maintenance facility in the Asia Pacific region.

Located at the Seletar Aerospace Park, the Singapore Service Centre, which opened in 2014, has more than quadrupled its current footprint from 70,000 sq. ft. (6,500 m2) to approximately 290,000 sq. ft. (27,000 m2). 

The facility features substantially enhanced service capabilities for its growing fleet of LearjetChallenger and Global aircraft operators.

The facility will also accommodate Bombardier’s new Global 8000 business jet, which it will be reading for service in 2025.

The expansion adds sought-after new heavy structural and composite repair capabilities as well as an integrated parts depot that will serve the site and the region, adding more than US$15 million in additional parts inventory. 

“The Singapore Service Centre will provide infinite benefits, including quicker aircraft turnarounds, greater convenience and peace of mind to Bombardier’s growing customer base in Asia,” said Jean-Christophe Gallagher, Executive Vice President, Services and Support, and Corporate Strategy, Bombardier.

“Customers can also enjoy access to the complete range of OEM customer service and support at their doorstep,” added Jean-Christophe Gallagher.

Bombardier has even gone as far as to installed solar panels on the facility’s roofs as well as its carpark structures to reduce energy consumption. This energy saving action is suspected to help out with 15 per cent of the sites annual electricity demand. 

The building really does have a focus on green initiatives. The use of building management systems, insulation, LED lighting, low flow plumbing fixtures and automated water reticulation for improved water conservation and enhanced energy efficiency were all added.

The design also achieved Singapore’s Green Mark Gold and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) Silver LEED Green Building certifications. 

So its no surprised that Bombardier also has a commitment to reducing the environmental footprint of aviation around the world.

In addition to the building, Bombardier introduced a new apprenticeship program in Singapore to ensure a strong grassroots aerospace pipeline is established.

The company has a worldwide fleet of roughly 5,000 aircraft in service with a wide variety of multinational corporations, charter and fractional ownership providers, governments, and private individuals.

Headquartered in Montréal, Québec, Bombardier operates aerostructure, assembly and completion facilities in Canada, the United States and Mexico.

Bombardier (BBD.B) is down 1.68 per cent, trading at C$18.14 at 2:20 pm EST.
