RotorcorpÂ LLC, an authorized factory service center for American-Made Robinson Helicopter Company, is expanding its reach in the global helicopter parts market with a new program targeted at small parts and major component supply for Robinsonâ€™s model R22, R44Â and new R66 Turbine helicopters.
RotorcorpÂ Director of Operations Sean Casey says â€œNearly half of the 10,000- strong Robinson helicopter fleet is operating outside of North America. With increasing light helicopter demand in China, India and the Middle East region, Rotorcorpâ€™sÂ International Operator ProgramÂ (I.O.P.) is designed to overcome many of the common hurdles faced by Robinson helicopter owners and maintenance facilities around the worldâ€.
Whether servicing fishing fleets in the Philippines, oil rigs in Brazil or rustling cattle in Australia-helicopters play a vital role in accessing areas where the road ends; but often subjecting non-domestic operators to thin and inconsistent supply chains that can be difficult to overcome.Â This often means time-consuming and expensive AOGÂ (emergency) parts orders or scavenging the fragmented secondary market for crucial parts.Â Â Casey continued-Â â€œOn top of advantageous pricing, Rotorcorp I.O.P. participants find that the program significantly reduces the pressure on their overall maintenance programsâ€.
RotorcorpÂ experts work with international customers to develop a meaningful and cost effectiveÂ on-hand parts inventory that is carefully tailored their unique fleet.Â With the ability to meet an increasing proportion of parts needs through an intelligently managed inventory, I.O.P. participants are seeing a decrease in AOGÂ orders and a positive impact on their bottom line.Â Casey quipped: â€œPerhaps the best benefit is the overall stress reduction of our customers that know they are getting the best prices along with consistent and reliable parts supply- allowing them to focus on their core businessâ€.
