Panel Builder System Integrator

Parker Aerospace, a business segment of Parker Hannifin Corporation, a global leader in motion and control technologies, recently announced plans for its Singapore-based joint venture company, Aerospace Component Engineering Services (ACE Services), to become a global center of excellence for the Boeing 747-400 and 747-800 flight controls. Working with the Parker Aerospace Control Systems Division and Customer Support Operations to expand its flight control support capabilities, ACE Services now supports maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) for the 747-400 and plans to fully assume MRO for the 747-800 in the third quarter of 2019.

In 2005 Parker Aerospace partnered with SIA Engineering Company to form ACE Services, a hydraulics repair facility specializing in the repair of aircraft hydromechanical products, including both Parker and non-Parker equipment. The joint venture facility was the first independent hydraulic repair service center in the region capable of providing hydraulic testing services up to 5,000 psi for such technologically advanced aircraft as the Boeing 787 and Airbus A380.

“Since its inception, ACE Services has broadened its expertise to include the repair and overhaul of flight control components to better meet the needs of its international airline and other MRO customers in the Pacific Rim,” said Brian Hunter, general manager of ACE Services. “With the expertise we have gained over years supporting Asia Pacific customers operating 747 aircraft, it is a natural transition to become Parker’s global center of excellence so that customers can benefit from the best-in-class support for which ACES is known.”

Parker Aerospace is the original equipment manufacturer for the flight control systems of the Boeing 747-400 and 747-800 aircraft. While Parker Aerospace ramps up production for OEM flight control components, its Control Systems Division (CSD) will simultaneously begin shifting all of its U.S. repair and overhaul support of Boeing 747 products from its Ogden, Utah, facility to the ACE Services facility in Singapore.

“This planned strategy will enable ACE Services to support major Boeing 747 operators on a more global scale by transforming our world-class repair center into a more comprehensive center of excellence,” commented Vic Jorcyk, Parker Aerospace Customer Support Operations vice president, commercial aftermarket. “Adding this latest level of integration will allow us to combine our expanding technical expertise with complete supply chain management to bring fleet management service to the highest possible level.”

All future Parker-manufactured components for the 747 will now be overhauled and repaired by ACE Services in Singapore. ACE Services currently maintains a large stock of rotable assets to support aircraft on ground (AOG) and exchange services.
