Antwerp, November 16, 2015 – Maintenance Partners, the market leader in the Benelux for engineered services and maintenance, repair and overhaul of electrical or mechanical rotating machines, transformers and wind turbines announces to continue its business operations as an independent company. After a successful reorganization under the wings of Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems the Belgian management takes over Maintenance Partners through a management buy-out.
