Posted 8 March 2016 · Add Comment

Saudia Aerospace Engineering Industries (SAEI) led the debate about the future of MRO in the GCC as part of the Global Aerospace Summit being held in Abu Dhabi.

During the GCC MRO session exclusively sponsored by SAEI, the speakers discussed the composite aircraft and its capital investment. The skill upgrade requirements was the major debate on the MRO industry’s future, the increasing threat facing independent MRO providers and MROs joint ventures, mergers and investment to address increasing demand, particularly from the Middle East. 

SAEI highlighted during this session, that with a record of its 55 years of real operating experience in the MRO industry, SAEI is presently primed to boost its pioneering position amongst the leading world MROs by providing outstanding services to meet the increasing demand within the kingdom and the region.      

Jose L. Quiros, SAEI’s new appointed CEO, said: “SAEI’s 5 years strategic transformation plan will include the implementation of new Standard Operation Procedures (SOPs) by working smarter not harder, the use of new technologies, new products to cope with market needs and investment in human capital and organization to implement new working culture and increase efficiency through maintaining the highest standards of safety and quality and the satisfaction of our customers.” 

Quiros, added “With 5300 well experienced employees, 92% of which are Saudis, is investing SR3.5 billion in developing the largest state-of-the-art MRO facility in the region on about one million square meter, which will position the Kingdom on the global aviation map, and allow SAEI to provide its services to the commercial, business and military fleets locally and regionally, and create thousands of job opportunities for the Saudis.”
