BEIJING, China, November 16, 2010 – Chromalloy, a leading independent provider of advanced repairs, services and solutions for aerospace, industrial gas turbine (IGT) and aero-derivative engines, announced today that it has opened a new office in Beijing, China, to better serve customers in the region.
“Chromalloy now will more readily reach gas turbine engine operators who have yet to take advantage of our proven components and repairs – and significantly lower cost structure,” said Armand F. Lauzon, Jr., President. “We are responding to the demand for high quality, high performance turbine parts, repairs, services for gas turbine engines in all segments – aircraft, industrial, aero-derivative, marine applications.
“Operators who demand top quality and performance and also want to effectively manage their costs will find a superior alternative in Chromalloy,” Lauzon said.
The new office is at: Room 905, Building 2, No. 16 Street Guangshui North Road, Chaoyang District, Beijing.
The new office expands the company’s staff to a group of sales leaders with deep industry expertise in each key segment. During the past 18 months Chromalloy has announced other growth and expansion in its worldwide manufacturing, service and sales network.
Chromalloy completed the expansion and doubled capacity recently at its turbine component repair and manufacturing center in Bangkok, Thailand. And last year the company invested more than $27 million to expand its turbine engine component casting operation in Tampa, Florida – at a new facility that now serves customers around the world.
To better serve customers in China, Chromalloy also launched its website in Chinese. The site, at www.chromalloy.com, is available in Chinese and English.
Chromalloy is the world’s largest independent supplier of technologically advanced repairs, coatings, and FAA-approved replacement parts for turbine airfoils and other critical engine components for commercial airlines, the military and industrial turbine engine applications.
The company’s continued investment in research and development of coating, and repair and manufacturing technology has led to the development of electron beam physical vapor deposition with ceramic materials, vacuum plasma, diffused precious metal / aluminide coatings, and vision-guided interactive laser welding and drilling for most advanced turbine engine components, as well as many other advanced technologies.
Chromalloy is a leading independent supplier of advanced repairs and services for gas turbines used in aviation and land-based applications, repairs, and refurbishes and manufactures engine components. The company’s engineered components and blades are subject to the same FAA requirements and scrutiny as OEM-produced equipment.
The company’s replacement parts for aircraft engines are FAA certified to meet or exceed the performance, reliability and durability specifications of original equipment manufacturer parts. In support of marine and land-based gas turbines, Chromalloy employs identical engineering disciplines used to produce its FAA-certified parts.
Chromalloy serves commercial, military and industrial turbine engine operators worldwide and has other offices and operations in Australia, Thailand, China, the U.K., Netherlands, France, Israel, Mexico and the U.S. In 2009 the company announced TSI Aviation as its sales and marketing representative in Latin America.
