MTU Maintenance Serbia d.o.o. has officially opened its new facility in Nova Pazova near Belgrade. MTU Maintenance Serbia is a fully owned subsidiary of MTU, a leading engine manufacturer and one of the world’s largest providers of aircraft engine maintenance services.
The site in Nova Pazova will become a vital part of the global MTU Maintenance network and is set up for the repair of engine parts. With its specific high-tech competences, MTU Maintenance Serbia will expand MTU’s piece part repair network significantly. The new facility covers around 39,000 m² and is planned to increase the workforce to more than 400 employees in the coming years.
In order to prepare the employees in the best possible way, MTU has developed the Aviation Academy in Belgrade into a leading training centre for aviation professions together with the Serbian Ministry of Education. The first MTU Maintenance Serbia specialists have already been trained. Moreover, they also undergo intensive on-the-job training at MTU locations in Germany and Poland.
In June 2022, MTU Maintenance Serbia completed the final handover of the new building and in July the employees moved into the new facility. Currently, final installation and trials of the state-of-the-art machinery is underway. MTU plans to start operations at the new site in December 2022, only 17-months after the start of construction.
