Business Prospect
The MRO industry is an attractive and relatively safe industry that is not highly affected by economic conditions. This is because the maintenance and repair of aircraft is obligatory and must be done routinely by all airlines outside the competition among the airlines themselves. As part of the service and equipment industry, the MRO business alone is quite profitable with profit margins reaching up to double digits, while GMF itself recorded a 15 percent profit margin growth in 2016.

GMF is a market leader in Indonesia and one of the major players in Asia. According to research from the Canadian Association of Marketing Research Organizations (CAMRO), the Asia Pacific and Middle East region is calculated to raise the number of aircraft fleets and the highest MRO growth. In line with this, GMF will focus on global expansion in the Middle East, East Asia, and Australia.

GMF has a good historical record as of the 2016 fiscal year. GMF’s EBITDA margin of 26 percent is recorded as one of the highest in the MRO industry. Revenue growth has consistently reached double digits for the last three years, with 27.18 percent in 2016. GMF revenue in 2016 amounted to US$389 million, with net income at US$57.7 million. The excellent performance and implementation of good corporate governance has been proven by the Very High-Level Quality MRO award from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the 2015 winner of Annual Report Award held by the Financial Services Authority (Otoritas Jasa Keuangan /OJK).

With its effort to become a Total Solutions Provider, GMF has contributed to Indonesia in the eyes of the international community through the establishment of “GMF Hangar 4″ which is the largest narrow body hangar plane in the world and is the only hangar that can accommodate 16 aircraft at once. In addition to hangars, GMF is also the sole operator of the Airbus Remote Training Center (ARTC) in the world that provides training on reparation and maintenance of international standard aircraft.

“Total Solutions Provider is our essence in enhancing the capacity and capability of technology and services to absorb the potential in the MRO business which is still very large both at home and abroad.” said Iwan.
