September 16, 2021

Safran Landing Systems, inaugurates its new wheel and brake repair facility in Grand Prairie, on September 15th, 2021, in the presence of Cédric Goubet, CEO and Nicolas Potier, Executive VP Wheels and Brakes.

The new repair shop has received its FAA certification on August 12th, 2021, and is fully operational to provide wheels & carbon brakes maintenance and logistics services to Safran's airline customers, as well as to the United States Air Force and United States Navy in support of their military platforms.

Cédric Goubet said, 'The opening of the Dallas shop is an important milestone in Safran Landing Systems' long-term commitment to strengthen our wheels and brakes repair network in the United States, and therefore meet the rapid growth of our integrated OEM & MRO packages offer.'

The five strategically-located repair stations (Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Miami, Florida; Bethlehem, Pennsylvania; Las Vegas, Nevada and Grand Prairie, Texas), staffed with 200 highly skilled specialists, have a combined footprint of 150,000 square feet. They are operating in full cooperation with our manufacturing plant in Walton, Kentucky, where wheels, brakes, and carbon heat sinks are produced.

Mike Buckley, President of Safran Wheel and Brake Repair and Services, added, 'this expansion allows us to better serve our airline partners, in the framework of the post-COVID traffic recovery and strong ramp-up in activity that the industry is experiencing. In addition to the logistics benefits that this network provides, our facilities have also enhanced their turn-key solutions, such as machining & metal improvement capabilities, to increase efficiencies, add value to our customers' supply chains, and allow them to focus on their core business.'
