JMC Group contracted to work with Boeing at Gatwick
Work entails B737 passenger to freighter conversions
aerobd.news :: JMC Group will commence work in late April on a two-year programme supporting Boeing at its Gatwick Airport MRO facility. JMC engineers will partner with Boeing on B737 passenger to freighter conversions. A new dedicated conversion line at Boeing’s Gatwick hangar has been established for the work, as demand for narrow-body freighters continues to grow.
“We are very pleased to have won this important contract from Boeing,” said Tony Eversden, JMC Group Head of Engineering. “To be involved in the freighter conversion programme – the first for Boeing at its new dedicated facility in the UK – gives us great pride. We tendered for the work back in the autumn, shortly after MRO Europe in Amsterdam and look forward to working closely with Boeing on the assignment. We pride ourselves on delivering the highest standards in such specialist work.”
Boeing opened its Gatwick Hangar in November 2019, reinforcing its commitment to the aftermarket. Close to the simulator centres in Crawley, the facility reflects Boeing’s commitment to the European aviation market and aerospace expertise in the UK.
