Nordam signs MRO deal with Boeing for CFM56-7 thrust reversers

21st April 2009 - 16:02 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Nordam Repair Group, which consists of the Repair Division in Tulsa, Nordam Europe in Cardiff, Wales, and Nordam Singapore, has been awarded a three-year contract by Boeing to provide repair and overhaul (MRO) services for Boeing Next-Generation 737 (B737NG) thrust reversers.

Nordam has contracted with Boeing to perform service bulletin SB1079 for 737NG thrust reversers. The service bulletin involves inspecting the thrust reverser inner walls and insulation blankets, and correction of any heat-related issues.

All three of Nordam's global repair facilities are authorised to perform SB1079 inspections and modifications. In 2006, the Nordam Repair Division in Tulsa became a Boeing approved repair supplier to perform component repairs, maintenance and overhaul services for Boeing.  Nordam’s European facility in Wales and Asian facility in Singapore became authorised repair facilities for this same designation in 2008.

“I’m proud that our team has met Boeing’s high expectations to perform SB1079 inspections and modifications. In this our 40th anniversary year, we’re now even more focused on customer needs and inventive solutions. The global downturn has promoted some challenges in our industry over the past two quarters, but we are still demonstrating our proven technical expertise as a total service provider,” said Meredith Siegfried, chief operating officer of Nordam’s Repair Group.
