Within 2 weeks, Aeromecanics was also added to AeroTech Pro; both entities are now under the control of SABENA Technics.
By consolidating its MRO chain, Aeromecanics could secure Sabena Technics’ position in the military sector, and acquiring or integrating skills in maintenance of military helicopters and aircraft.
Actually, the main goal is to ensure MRO to properly guarantee conistency of essential missions in the military/defense sector. And given the fragility of supply chains at the moment, there is a current trend to do this to strengthen the resilience of the supply chain.
