Under the terms of the agreement, Satair Group - a world leading provider of integrated material services in the commercial aerospace aftermarket - will provide worldwide aftermarket sales, distribution and support during the course of the next five years. The waste and water tank spare components, currently sold through the Exelis subsidiary EDO Corporation, are original equipment to numerous Boeing aircraft in operation today.
Steen Karsbo, Vice President of Business Development at Satair Group comments: “I am very excited to enter into this new partnership with Exelis – a company that leverages a long legacy of technical expertise, both in the design and manufacture of tanks, to prime commercial aircraft manufacturers and respective aircraft.”
Both companies are highly committed to delivering high-quality and cost effective composite solutions to global customers.
Grant D. Hall, Director of Strategy and Business Development at Exelis Aerostructures adds: “Satair Group is unique in the sense that they offer a high level of service through comprehensive sales, warehousing and logistics management capabilities worldwide, including competitive prices, minimum lead times and dedicated support. It is our expectation that Satair Group’s strong and pro-active global sales force will ensure that we bring more value to our end-user customers - the airlines, MROs and key players in the commercial aftermarket.”
