Magnetic MRO Opens Painting Hangar

Total technical care organization Magnetic MRO enlarged its services portfolio by offering full aircraft painting capability in its Tallinn headquarters. Magnetic MRO commenced its first painting project already in July, with painting slots reservation open for the winter maintenance season.

The hangar has the capability to offer services to all narrow-body aircraft, including the Airbus A320 family, Boeing 737 CL/NG, Embraer ERJ, Bombardier CRJ, ATRs and others. In the near future capabilities will broaden to high-quality, high-gloss special painting for business jets and small aircraft painting services.

MMRO’s 2725 sq.m. facility is equipped with the latest electrostatic spray, ventilation systems and LED lighting systems. The Sherwin-Williams painting system from USA will be a preferred choice, but appliances from other manufacturers will be included to meet all customer requirements.

The equipment was installed in co-operation with partner Spraybooth Technology Limited (STL) from the UK. With strict environmental requirements in mind, MMRO has received a national environmental permit and will ensure the painting services comply with the requirements of ISO 14001 and all the relevant environmental legislations, including the Environmental Protection Act of 1995 and the Pollution Prevention and Control Act of 1999.

“Introducing painting services in our Tallinn facilities, we strive for the highest level of client satisfaction by delivering the highest quality of painting services on competitive budgets, not to mention our flexibility concerning aircraft accommodation and TAT upon client need,” says Andrius Norkevicius, COO of engineering services at Magnetic MRO. “We were able to achieve such competitive offerings to our clients by combining a team of internationally experienced managers, engineers and painters with a local workforce.”‎

Painting services bring added value to the organization’s total technical care concept. Customers will benefit from on-site and in-house base and line maintenance, structures and composites workshops, non-destructive testing, placard and decal design and production, and 24/7 spare parts management.
