Milena Gajović Shrestha, General Manager, SR Technics Services

Engine Business Leader Maintains Leadership

One of the largest independent technical employers in the aviation sector, this Swiss company has over 2,200 highly qualified employees worldwide and is renowned for its continuous investments in equipment and people, but also for its major investments and new partnerships

SR Technics Services in Serbia provides administrative, financial and technical support services, with the aim of supporting the company’s further growth in all business segments at the global level.

Are there any current or upcoming contracts and projects that would represent an important step forward?

Our company’s target is to double our business over the next five years. We are building infrastructure in Zurich, opening new production facilities and increasing our workforce by around 500 people within the next few years, in order to extend our capabilities for maintenance, repair and overhaul services for the GTF and LEAP engines.

In 2022, SR Technics also partnered with Pratt & Whitney and joined the GTF MRO network, while in April this year we took another new step towards the reactivation of our second test cell at Zurich Airport, and in June we signed a five-year agreement with Safran Aircraft Engines for SR Technics to provide quick-turn maintenance offload support to LEAP-1A engines. With the new LEAP-1A product, we have now taken a decisive step forward in the portfolio of our engine business.

Does improving sustainability occupy an important place in your operations?

Environmental protection is a strategic pillar of SR Technics’ organisation and service portfolio. By extending engine life cycle and delivering best-in-class on-wing performance, SR Technics contributes to the optimised use of resources for its customers and limits the environmental impact of airline operations. We include our employees in this mission.

On the other hand, SR Technics set its global target to reduce absolute CO2 emissions by 2025 from the 2019 baseline despite the growth of the company. The main focus of the engine business and support functions is on the reduction and optimisation of energy consumption in engine testing. At the same time, we invest in a circular economy – together with OEMs, our company continuously introduces new repair capabilities to avoid scrap and resources for the production of new parts.

In April, SR Technics partnered with Kuehne+Nagel and Atlas Air for Sustainable Engine Alliance, members of which aim to reduce their collective environmental impact by building networks for sustainable engine supply ecosystems and offer a portfolio of sustainable services.

Has SR Technics Services Serbia justified the quality epithet attributed to the company worldwide?

The company in Belgrade has around 290 employees supporting the core business, with a growth tendency. In Serbia, we gather a top professional team that’s driven by a passion to acquire new knowledge and that operates daily, in the spirit of teamwork, to improve the level of efficiency and standardisation of our business processes.

The greatest value of SR Technics is our employees. Through various benefits, such as flexible form of work, a tenure incentive scheme, private health insurance etc., we try to ensure that each individual feels good and maintains a balance between their private and business life. We pay special attention to the training of our employees and achieve this through a personal development plan, as well as through other courses that contribute to constant investments in the growth of our employees.
