xCelle Americas: nacelle support within arm’s reach

xCelle Americas:

Nacelle support within arm’s reach

The joint venture between AFI KLM E&M and Triumph offers support solutions for new-generation aircraft nacelles, serving all airlines operating in the Americas. Unveiled in the autumn of 2021, the xCelle Americas company is now FAA- and EASA-certified, and fully operational for the repair and support of 787, 737 Max, A350 and A320neo nacelles. With its OEM-licensed solutions, this co-enterprise draws upon the combined strengths of its two parent companies: AFI KLM E&M’s engineering support capabilities and experience as an Airline-MRO, along with the extensive expertise and facilities of Triumph, a globally renowned operator in the nacelles sector.


Localised support

From the xCelle Americas base in Hot Springs, Arkansas, CEO Philippe Martin de Beauce explains the challenge for airlines:

“Nacelle shop visits are mainly due to incidents – hitting a bird during flight, minor collisions during stopovers, etc. Because they are complex and costly to transport, nacelles require localised parts and repair services, and this is exactly what we’re providing with xCelle Americas. Thanks to our rapid and efficient turnarounds, our customers can secure their operations and reduce their costs of ownership.”

An initial project involving a 787 nacelle is already underway at the co-enterprise’s workshop, providing assistance to a European airline following an incident that occurred during a stopover in Los Angeles.

Global Network

The kinds of incidents that make shop visits necessary can occur anywhere. Regardless of the type of issue encountered by its customers, xCelle Americas provides a solution that is simultaneously local and global. The company forms an integral part of AFI KLM E&M’s global network, which notably features nacelle support capabilities in Europe and the Middle East (Triumph also has a presence in Asia).

“With its experience, expertise and position as a local MRO supplier within a global network, xCelle Americas is capable of providing support to all airlines flying in the Americas, and beyond.”
