Tropical was founded on the 19th of November 1999, as MTU Maintenance do Brasil Ltda. Originally a subsidiary of MTU Aero Engines, the largest aircraft engine manufacturer in Germany, Tropical started its operations in Brazil with commercial activities in the maintenance of aero engines and industrial gas turbines aero derived.
On the 1st of July 2006, the company was sold in a management buy-out process and had its name changed to Tropical Serviços de Manutenção Ltda (Tropical Maintenance Services Ltd). Tropical then became the official representative of MTU Aero Engines for the maintenance of aircraft engines in Brazil and for aero derived industrial gas turbines in the whole of Latin America.
Ever since, Tropical has systematically expanded its activities, offering new products and services to the aeronautical and the industrial markets. With highly qualified professionals, the company stands out for its deep knowledge of the Latin American reality that is applied to the development of tailor made solutions to the need of all its customers.
