Dear GMI Partners and Customers,
In our continuous effort to grow through innovation and expand our network of Partnerships within the bonded composite repair field, a new MoU has been recently signed in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia, with the KKIP Aerospace Training Centre (KATC).
Thanks to the seamless efforts of GMI exclusive representative in Malaysia, Hypercoat, and despite COVID-19 travel restrictions, the tripartite MoU has been signed during a special ceremony hosted at KATC facilities, witnessed by His Excellence the Deputy Chief Minister of Industrial Development, Datuk Dr Joachim Gunsalam, and several other distinguished guests.
The main purpose of this trilateral MoU (KKIP, GMI, Hypercoat) is to support KKIP towards becoming a Centre of Excellence (CoE) in bonded composite repairs for Malaysia and the broader Southeastern Asia, enabling Training and Research & Development activities, while fostering economic growth.
With this new addition, the constellation of GMI scientific Partners, counts 13 entities and expands in 8 countries worldwide, with following primary objectives:
Considering the rapidly growing volume of composite materials on modern aircraft and the increasing need for repairs of the older ones, it is expected that airlines and MROs using innovative GMI solutions and partner Universities’ and companies’ support will be provided with a very important advantage compared to competition, in terms of range of available solutions, cost efficiency and performance.
