Turkish Technic meets MRO demand with Honeywell APU partnership

February 13, 2015

With more than 5,500 staff and facilities which include the recently opened $550m HABOM maintenance and repair center at Istanbul’s Sabiha Gökçen International Airport, Turkish Technic is a leading aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) company.

As well as providing support for Turkish Airlines’ fleet of almost 300 aircraft, its customers include aircraft operators from Asia, the CIS, Europe, the Middle East and Northern Africa. These third-party customers now account for approximately 30% of the company’s revenue.

In order to meet the demands of airlines looking for greater efficiency through one-stop maintenance and repair solutions, Turkish Technic became authorized to carry out full-servicing and testing across a range of Honeywell auxiliary power units (APUs).

“We have been working with Honeywell for more than 20 years,” said Ahmet Karaman, CEO, Turkish Technic. “But we have recently been focusing on building our joint agreement covering APUs, which we now maintain at our facility in Istanbul Atatürk airport.

“We can now remove an APU here, maintain it in-house and install it back on the aircraft. It cuts down the ground time of the aircraft and helps the customer to work with a one-stop shop rather than dividing the work across many different locations.

“Having an agreement with Honeywell helps Turkish Technic to win customers and make money. We will try to deepen our relationship with Honeywell. How far will we go? The sky’s the limit.”
