Embraer display repair agreement aligns Muirhead with Honeywell
Muirhead Avionics is expanding its Embraer customer support across Europe and Asia by partnering with Honeywell to repair cockpit and control displays for ERJ and Legacy aircraft.
Cockpit and control displays on ERJ 140/145/135 and Legacy aircraft will be repaired by Muirhead.

Muirhead Avionics, a brand of Ametek MRO and one of the largest independent avionics repair facilities in Europe, will provide repair and on-going support for Honeywell's cockpit displays, control displays and display computers for ERJ 140/145/135 and Legacy aircraft. The 10 year agreement is globally exclusive and will commence immediately. Customers will ship all units to Muirhead Avionics' specialist facility near London Heathrow airport and can be reassured of the OEM-quality standards and prompt turnaround times commensurate with a repair partnership of this calibre.

Muirhead managing director Steve Wells emphasises the company's core strategy of alliances with OEMs and legacy products: “This agreement reinforces our long term relationship with Honeywell and will expand our repair business in the displays sector. It has confidence in our OEM-trained technicians and our extensive history of customer support.”

Honeywell customer business manager Zdenek Hrdlicka adds: “We seek legacy expertise that can deliver high value-added repair support for our Embraer customers; they expect the best. Muirhead Avionics' OEM-approved facilities and expertise have a worldwide reputation; they speak our language.”

Establishing repair partnerships and representative agreements with leading OEMs is a cornerstone of Muirhead's business. As part of the Ametek MRO group, the company has the investment it needs to underpin innovation and expand its capabilities.

“An important factor in Honeywell's decision to choose Muirhead Avionics was the global service we can provide in Europe and Asia,” adds Wells. “This means it can maintain its worldwide support for Embraer knowing it has our commitment to underwrite and sustain OEM quality across all repair and overhaul programmes.”

The specialist avionics MRO sector for fixed and rotary wing operators has not seen the fluctuating demand throughout the Covid pandemic that has beset other parts of the industry. Over the past 18 months, Muirhead Avionics has built significant business with OEMs that are seeking to outsource to trusted providers.

“Across the AMETEK MRO organisation, we are seeing new opportunities with larger OEMs,” says Wells. “It is a trend we anticipate will grow as the aviation industry recovers and OEMs embrace and promote new technologies.”
