The deal marks the first entry of Satair Group into the helicopter sector and introduces the company to hundreds of new customers among rotary wing operators and helicopter MRO service providers.
Signing the contract today, Mr. Steen Karsbo, VP and Head of Business Development of Satair Group stated: “We are happy to improve Goodrich® support of our customers in need of spare parts. The helicopter sector has been on our strategy agenda for some time and through this important new agreement we are now making our first entry into this sector. We have enjoyed a long-standing business relationship with UTC Aerospace Systems across other fixed-wing product lines and are determined to earn their continued business by delivering excellent service in the rotary wing sector.
“We will now add hundreds of new customers to our portfolio and through this introduction to the helicopter sector we hope to be able to expand our business dealings with these new operators by also introducing them to our existing product lines.”
Mr. Mark Skarohlid, VP of Business Development and Customer Support for Sensors & Integrated Systems at UTC Aerospace Systems added: “UTC Aerospace Systems is pleased to extend its customer support relationship with Satair Group into the rotorcraft sector.
