SEVEN new factories, each up to 3,000 sq m in size, will come up at Seletar Aerospace Park next year, near the future Rolls-Royce facility. The $30 million project by JTC Corp is partly to support the British power systems and engines giant, which will assemble and test engines, as well as make fan blades for large aircraft, at the site.

EDB director of transport engineering Sia Kheng Yok said: ‘There are many discussions now on with local and overseas companies about supply opportunities.’ Growing the manufacturing arm of the aerospace industry is a key priority for Singapore, which currently does more work in aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO). This segment accounted for about 90 per cent of the industry’s total output last year, which hit just over $7 billion – about the level seen in 2008.
