Satair Group has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with FTI covering the Americas and Asia-Pacific, including China. Effective from July 1st 2015, the deal covers FTI’s full line of on-aircraft video based surveillance solutions and upgrade programmes. The equipment covers cabin, cockpit, cargo compartment, intrusion detection and ground operation support across Airbus, Boeing, Embraer, and Bombardier fleets.
Under the terms of the agreement, Satair Group - a world leading provider of integrated material services in the commercial aerospace aftermarket - will provide aftermarket sales, marketing, distribution and AOG support.
Steen Karsbo, Vice President of Business Development at Satair Group comments: “I am very excited to enter into this new partnership with FTI – a company that delivers state-of-the-art solutions for meeting the challenges of aircraft security in the air as well as on the ground. Immediate detection of everyday incidents may prevent major damage, economic loss and damage of reputation. FTI leverages a long legacy of technical expertise and their modular system architecture provides a unique range of solutions for customers across all types of aircraft.”
With this agreement, FTI expands its global footprint by starting business in entirely new markets.
Today, FTI is present in Europe and the Middle-East. From now on, Satair Group will act as the key enabler to the American and Asia-Pacific markets through technical selling and implementation of FTI’s product upgrade programmes.
