Eaton-SAMC Facility in China to Provide Duct & Tube Repair Services to APAC Region

SHANGHAI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Power management company Eaton’s joint venture with Shanghai Aircraft
Manufacturing Co. (SAMC) has received approval by the U.S. Federal
Aviation Administration (FAA), the European Union Aviation Safety Agency
(EASA) and the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) to provide
maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services on ducting and tubes to
customers in the Asia-Pacific region.

With these certifications, the existing Eaton-SAMC facility in Shanghai
will immediately begin serving as a ducting, tube and hose repair
station. Expanding MRO capabilities in the APAC region is part of
Eaton’s commitment to providing tailored solutions to help meet
customers’ needs.

“We understand why our customers are increasingly demanding repair
solutions – just one repair can save as much as $50,000 compared to
replacing the damaged part with new,” said Scott Thompson, senior vice
president and general manager, Fluid and Electrical Distribution
Division, Aerospace Group, Eaton. “By opening a local repair facility
for our customers in the Asia-Pacific region, we can better support
airlines around the world in reducing costs by delivering timely
full-service repairs on all duct and tube products – even those
manufactured by our competitors.”

Eaton’s aftermarket solutions assist customers in growing their
businesses, while ensuring reliability and safety. In addition to
expanding Eaton’s MRO capabilities globally, Eaton’s duct and tube
repair business is building additional capability to do more complex
repairs. To learn more about Eaton’s duct and tube repairs visit
