Front Repair Workshops

Aircraft that could not be repaired in the field by Luftwaffe personnel and required depot-level maintenance were sent to a Frontreparaturbetrieb (GL) organized and staffed by civilian engineers and craftsmen provided by the aircraft manufacturers and contractors, i.e., Junkers, Messerschmitt, Heinkel, Daimler-Benz, Siebel, Ago, Espenlaub, etc.

At their peak, these numbered around 100 and ranged from a couple of hundred employees all the way up to a couple of thousand.
