CRMA sAFETY AND QUALITY POLICY

 

CRMA's ambition is to be a key player in the engines parts and brakes repairs market. The management system by Quality and Safety responds to this ambition by relying on the following fundamentals:

  • Guarantee flight safety, whatever the requirements: operational, commercial or financial.
  • Deliver reliable repaired services and products that meet regulatory and customer requirements.
  • Improve the efficiency of the management system through an integrated approach of the objectives and  the methodological, industrial and human means to achieve it.
  • Promote trust within the organization through the implementation of a fair and equitable managerial policy, neither unjustly punitive nor lax.
  • Encourage feedbacks from the field to detect as early as possible any unusual situation presenting a  risk to flight safety.
  • Develop cooperation and transparency between the services and with the supervisory authority, with a   view to improvement and progress

In addition to the fundamentals, the following priority areas are developed to improve the management system through Quality and Safety:

  • Identify and effectively address the root causes of dysfunctions
  • Recognize the right to make mistake
  • Reduce the risks linked to human factors, particularly through the associated continuing training and respect for their principles.
  • Reliability of our repair processes to get it right the first time.
  • Manage by risks so as to better control hazards.
  • Empower, train and support each stakeholder in their tasks.
  • Promote short loops and prompt decision making.
  • Promote feedback mechanisms.
  • Ensure the success of improvement and innovation initiatives, including participative PACTE, and a structured approach and rigorous management.

Together, we bring all the assets for CRMA to grow by meeting the expectations of its customers and other stakeholders without ever compromising flight safety.

 

1957
CRMA was founded in Issy-les-Moulineaux on the southern edge of Paris, taking over the business activities of engine manufacturer Salmson and the Voisin aircraft manufacturing company, and entering the promising market for military aircraft maintenance.

1978
UTA acquired all CRMA’s maintenance activities and its personnel. At that time, CRMA began operating in the civil aviation manufacturing and maintenance market.

1991
AIR FRANCE acquired UTA. CRMA continued to operate in the field of civil and military aircraft maintenance. Taking advantage of the additional work from Air France, CRMA expanded its range of component-based products.

1992
CRMA moved to new premises in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, near Versailles, equipped with sophisticated maintenance facilities that would allow it to develop in three directions:

  • Engine module repairs,
  • Engine parts reconditioning,
  • Component overhauls. 

At that time, CRMA opened up to the wider market, and signed up its first third-party customers.

1993
CRMA was appointed official repair center for all Air France fleet braking systems, and began marketing CF6-50 component repair services.

1998
Air France Industries designated CRMA as a “Center of Excellence” for its GE and CFMI engine module and component repair services.

2005
CRMA repaired its first GE90 engine components.

2006
CRMA geared up to offer module and component repairs on the GP7200 engines equipping the Airbus A380.

2009
A contract signed with GE AES saw CRMA become a “Primary Source” for GP7200 combustion chambers and TCF (Turbine Center Frame) modules. CRMA thus became sole supplier worldwide for this type of repairs. The two sub-systems were added to and extended CRMA Very Big Engine (VBE) repair capabilities.

2010
CRMA refocused its organization on Customer Care with three new business units: Engineering & Production, Supply Chain, and Support Functions. In overhauling the first TCF (Turbine Center Frame) of a GP7200 engine for GE AES, CRMA became a key player in MRO services for this powerplant.

2011
CRMA won approval from GE to repair GE90-94 combustion chambers.

2012
CRMA solicitous about its sustainable development policy equips itself of a brand new effluent processing station.

2013
CRMA obtains CAAC certificate which capacitates to operate certified repairs by Chinese authorities.

2014
CRMA obtains A.E.O. (Authorized Economic Operator) certificate and becomes one of the rare MRO shop in the world specialized in terms of customs simplification & security.

CRMA adds a new part to its offer : GE90 FAN HUB FRAME. To do so, CRMA knew how to rise to the challenge to invent a unique high added value repair. The OEM GE, has without a doubt integrated this repair to its manual (ESM).

2015
CRMA integrates tech-inser multiholes combustors to its repair offer. CRMA is the only European MRO center and the first non OEM shop in the world to propose this repair.

2016
CRMA becomes one of the rare shops in the world to be qualified for the assembly and the disassembly of GEnx combustor.

2017
CRMA pursues successfully repair industrialization on the GEnx combustor

Celebration of the 60th birthday of the company

2018, coming soon
