CHARLOTTE, N.C., Nov. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- UTC Aerospace Systems and Revima Group today announced a long-term agreement to provide maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services for landing gear systems on Boeing 777-300ER aircraft operated by Emirates. While the service agreement with Emirates remains under the prime responsibility of Revima, a portion of the work scope will now take place at the Goodrich Customer Services Inc. maintenance, repair and overhaul campus in Dubai. UTC Aerospace Systems is a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).

"We are pleased to work with Revima to bring landing gear capability to Dubai and ultimately deliver a robust supply chain solution for Emirates' service needs," said Ajay Agrawal, UTC Aerospace Systems Vice President of Aftermarket. "We have continued to focus on positioning capability and capacity close to our customers to effectively meet their needs, and we look forward to supporting continued growth in the Middle East region."
