Engineering firm to open new £2m maintenance centreAug 28, 2018
The new centre is midway between MAEL’s Luton and Birmingham base maintenance facilities. It will employ 20 staff and MAEL is looing to create a further ten new jobs.
It will carry out a range of repairs and maintenance work for MAEL’s clients. Since becoming an independent MRO provider in October last year, following the collapse of the Monarch Group, MAEL has secured new agreements with airlines including Virgin Atlantic, China Airlines, Wizz Air, Icelandair and La Compagnie.

This multi-million pound investment in new facilities, equipment and, most importantly, skilled engineering talent, is an integral part of our long-term growth plan and will play a vital role in our success in the years ahead.
