EME Aero – new investment on the air map of the Podkarpacie region.
On the March, the company bought the land for the construction of the plant in the municipality of Trzebownisko which was notarielly certified today. The new investment is planned in the vicinity of other entities operating in the technological industries. The company gradually plans to employ around 800 people from a variety of branches. There will be work both for the aviation mechanics, certifying staff as well as non-destructive testing personnel. Also, administrative staff will be desirable. The emergence of such an entity also equals to development of a wide network of small and medium-sized companies as well as suppliers who will cooperate with EME Aero as subcontractors. These companies will implement a variety of services for the new plant, which will have an impact on the formation of hundreds of subsequent jobs in industries that are not directly connected with aviation. These entities – subcontractors will generate additional income to local budgets, and thus will indirectly contribute to the development of local communities. It is a very good information for the local communities that this investment will employ a few hundred people. That will also create opportunities for the local companies to cooperate with EME Aero. We are pleased, that we have appropriate conditions, that induced this international concern to choose district of Trzebownisko - added the Major of Trzebownisko, Lesław Kuźniar.
The company will be headed up by project leader Derrick Siebert (CEO) from Lufthansa Technik AG and by Dr. Uwe Zachau (COO), his counterpart at MTU Aero Engines AG. The facility is slated to be up and running in 2020. The planned annual capacity is over 400 shop visits of PW1000G-series geared turbofans, which power the Airbus A320neo family of aircraft and other airliners.
