The company’s Dr. Thomas Steuger says it will expand its maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services. It has already added significant square footage to its Tulsa facility.

"We are going to strengthen our production into the different markets," Steuger said at the announcement today. "As you for sure know, the United States is ... a very important important market for MRO services."
