GSA acquires Swiss MRO giant's operation in Malaysia


KUALA LUMPUR: Global Systémes Asia Sdn Bhd (GSA) is acquiring Swiss maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) giant RUAG International’s operation in Malaysia, deemed one of the most strategic moves in the Malaysian aerospace industry history.


GSA, an integrated solutions system and MRO services company, said the acquisition signified the first for a Malaysian company within the MRO sector, enhancing the nation’s agenda of becoming a regional and global hub for the industry.


Chairman Datuk Nonee Ashirin Mohd Radzi said the deal would significantly increase GSA’s MRO helicopter and aircraft capabilities while supporting its affiliate company, Global Turbines Asia Sdn Bhd (GTA).


The GSA-GTA and RUAG strong synergy would boast an enhanced services portfolio adding components, fuselage, starter generator and electrical systems to GTA’s already successful MRO offering.
