Malaysia Airlines Engineering & Maintenance (E&M) Division is acknowledged as the best Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) centre in Asia Pacific by Frost & Sullivan, Singapore.

In awarding the 36 year old organization with the 2009 Asia Pacific Frost & Sullivan Airframe MRO Center of The Year Award, Frost & Sullivan said, "Malaysia Airlines E&M division has exhibited its capability to deliver comprehensive services including aircraft modification and upgrades to its customers in the Asia Pacific region and worldwide.

“It has delivered high value to customers. In addition, it has demonstrated growth in the customization of airframe MRO products, innovation, marketing, and sales strategies that have resulted in revenue growth over the past 2 to 3 years. Potential revenue for the coming years remains strong.”

Senior General Manager, E&M, Mohd Roslan Ismail said, “We are delighted to accept this award on behalf of the entire engineering team who has worked very hard to position our E&M as a leading MRO player.

"Over the last 2 years, our third party revenue contribution has increased 100% from RM218 million in 2006 to RM438 million in 2008, and we have seen a 50% increase in the number of customers. Our target revenue for 2009 is RM520 million."

He added, “Last year, we set up MAS Aerospace Engineering (MAE), a wholly-owned subsidiary to take advantage of the MRO business. Our success story includes signing a JV agreement to establish a JV MRO in Hyderabad, India, which marks our first foray overseas.

“Key priorities for the year include finalizing all joint ventures off-shore and overseas. We hope that the JV with Qantas and Alenia Aeronavali of Italy will be fully operational by next year.”

MAS E&M Division currently has 80 customers including Lufthansa, Saudi Arabian Airlines, Jet Airways, Qantas, Austrian Airlines, AWAS, RBS and GECAS, one of the world’s largest fleet owners and lessors.
