GE Aviation Wales specialises in the maintenance, repair and overhaul of a range of commercial jet engines. The facility, based in Nantgarw, just North of Cardiff, occupies over 1.2 million square foot of workshop space and has two state-of-the-art aircraft engine testing facilities, along with a significant repair capability – known as Component Repair Wales.  

The site has the capability to provide maintenance, repair and overhaul services for a range of engine types – including the world’s most powerful commercial aircraft engine the GE90 115B and the world’s most popular commercial engine the CFM56.   

As one of the largest commercial aircraft engine maintenance facilities in the world, with annual sales of over $2.9bn, the business works with over 90 customers worldwide, including Emirates, TUI, Lufthansa, Delta, United, ANA and British Airways.   

In 2017, GE Aviation Wales was selected as the Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul facility of choice for the GE9X; which will become the world’s largest and most fuel-efficient jet engine when it launches into service. The business will benefit from a £5m investment from the Welsh Government to support the total £20m investment put forward by the business, to equip and upskill the facility to be ready to maintain the GE9X fleet when it enters service on the new Boeing 777X aircraft.  

GE Aviation Wales places a strong focus on providing career opportunities for talented individuals. Our apprenticeship, placements and work experience opportunities have been built to ensure the long-term success of our business by developing the next generation of technical, engineering and problem-solving talent.
