AMETEK MRO Singapore celebrates a year of expansion
SINGAPORE (September 19, 2022) – As the aviation MRO sector gathers in Singapore for the annual MRO Asia exhibition and conference, AMETEK Singapore PTE looks back over the past year which has seen the organization significantly ramp up its scope of MRO capabilities. David Corish, Divisional Vice President & General Manager of AMETEK Singapore PTE, reiterates how the Company’s core strategy of supporting legacy platforms is enabling it to become the go-to MRO provider for an increasingly wide range of support. “Establishing repair partnerships and agreements with leading OEMs enables us to provide an enhanced level of support in-region as flight hours continue to recover and grow. The confidence we have in our OEM-trained technicians and our extensive history of customer support enables us to provide comprehensive maintenance solutions, particularly in regions such as Asia Pacific. Here European and US based OEMs need to adopt a collaborative approach to provide viable repair options from a logistics and local service perspective. This is a cornerstone of AMETEK MRO’s business.” In January the organization augmented its capabilities by investing in Airbus A350 maintenance solutions thus providing customers in the Asia Pacific region with a regional support option for the full suite of cargo and galley heaters for the aircraft type. Further complemented by AMETEK’s current airworthiness approvals including CAAS, CAAC, FAA, EASA, JCAB, CAAM, CAAV and DGCA. Having provided maintenance, repair, and overhaul services on CF6-80, PW2000, PW4000, V2500, Trent 700, Trent 800 and Trent 900 engines for more than fourteen years, AMETEK Singapore was named a Honeywell Authorized Repair Centre (ARC) for these components in May. This new agreement with Honeywell allows further penetration into OEM-centric markets in Asia for those customers requiring OEM only material. In July, AMETEK Singapore increased its scope of MRO support for AsiaPAC airlines and operators, independent engine MROs and repair management companies with streamlined local representation for AMETEK Sensors & Fluid Management Systems (SFMS). Earlier this month, further enhancements to the range of MRO support services arrived with the opening of a state-of-the-art wheel and brake repair facility. All technician training, scoping of equipment, approvals and accreditation management for the new shop has been supervised by ANTAVIA, the AMETEK MRO business based in France which operates two highly successful wheel and brake repair divisions in Paris CDG and Campsas, near Toulouse. “Legacy carriers, low-cost airlines, regional operators, business jets, and military opportunities are all integral to our long-term plans” says Corish. “Local demand is forecast to increase rapidly in the next ten years as airline restructuring and new purchasing strategies start to take hold. AMETEK MRO Singapore recognizes that OEM approved component repair and licensing agreements, particularly for more mature product lines, can deliver the ultra-efficient repair services that airlines expect.” About AMETEK MRO AMETEK MRO, a division of AMETEK, is a leading global provider of maintenance, repair, and overhaul services for commercial, regional, military, and general aviation aircraft.

DIES, TOOLS, PATTERNS Seller’s charges for dies, molds, patterns and the like represent the Buyer’s proportionate cost thereof, it being expressly understood that they remain the property of Seller. Modifications made to dies, molds, patterns and the like in order to manufacture Products shall be at the discretion of Seller. XII. GENERAL A. The rights and obligations of the Buyer and Seller hereunder shall be governed in all respects by the law of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, U.S.A. The exclusive forum for adjudication of any disputes shall be the federal or state courts of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and Buyer/Seller hereby consent to personal jurisdiction and venue in such courts in any proceeding. The United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods shall not apply. B. These Terms and Conditions of Sale together with any other terms specifically agreed to in writing by Seller constitute the entire agreement between Buyer and Seller and supersede any prior or contemporaneous representations, agreements, proposals, warranties, or understandings, oral or written, express or implied. No waiver, modification, amendment, rescission or other change to these Terms and Conditions of Sale shall be binding unless specifically agreed to in writing by an authorized representative of Seller. C. The invalidity, of any part hereof shall not affect the validity of the remainder. The failure of Seller to assert any right at any time hereunder shall not prevent Seller's subsequent assertion of the same or different rights. D. Buyer may not assign this contract without the prior written approval of the Seller. XIII. PROHIBITION FOR HAZARDOUS USE Products sold hereunder are not intended for application in, and shall not be used by Buyer in construction or application of a nuclear installation or in connection with use or handling of nuclear material or for any hazardous activity or critical application, where failure of a single component could cause substantial harm to persons or property, unless Products have been specifically approved for such activity or application. Seller disclaims all liability for loss or damage resulting from such unauthorized use and Buyer shall defend, hold harmless and indemnify Seller against any such liability, whether arising under breach of contract, warranty, tort (regardless of the degree of fault or negligence), strict liability or otherwise. Where Seller approves the application of the Products in a nuclear facility, the Buyer shall, before such use or provision, arrange for insurance or governmental indemnity protecting the Seller against liability and hereby releases and agrees to indemnify the Seller and its suppliers for any nuclear damage, including loss of use, in any manner arising out of a nuclear incident, whether alleged to be due, in whole or in part to the negligence or otherwise of the Seller or its suppliers. XIV. STATUTORY REQUIREMENTS Seller reserves the right to make any changes in the general specifications of the Products which are required for the Products to conform to any statutory requirement. XV. GOVERNMENT CONTRACTS Only Federal Acquisition Regulation (“FAR”) supplement clauses expressly accepted in writing by Seller shall be included or incorporated by reference herein. Seller shall not be bound by and makes no representation of compliance with any FAR or FAR supplement clauses that Seller shall not have expressly accepted in writing. XVI. INVOICE FRAUD PREVENTION Given the increased risk of invoice fraud, Buyer should treat any notification to change details of Seller’s bank account with suspicion. Seller will not inform or instruct Buyer to make remittance or money transfers to any other beneficiary, address or bank account via email. Always verify a request to update records or change bank account information BEFORE implementing a change or completing the payment. Verify any requested changes by speaking to a known Seller representative.
