The Satair-Diehl partnership in the region is already well established and will now be strengthened even further. With the conclusion of this agreement, Satair in Singapore will continue being Diehl's exclusive Customer Support Centre for the Asia Pacific region – providing distribution support for Diehl Aerospace, Diehl Aircabin and Diehl Comfort Modules products.
“We are committed to operational excellence for the benefit of our customers, which includes premium after-sales support”, stated Rainer von Borstel, Diehl Aerosystems CEO. “The agreement is as well designed to support an increased direct Diehl footprint in the Asia Pacific region in order to commonly pursue the Diehl Customer Support philosophy for their systems and products and to enlarge the capability list of the Service Centre to the benefit of our common Customers.”
Rene Frandsen, Managing Director of Satair Pte. Ltd. in Singapore comments: “Going forward, we will establish and support an even stronger performance for Diehl. We are injecting more resources in to customer support and repair services in our new state-of-the-art 16,700 sqm Service Centre in Singapore, which will be officially inaugurated during the Singapore Air Show 2014. This means that we will have both new additional repair capabilities as well as more human resources.
Satair in Singapore will continue to provide repair services for a wide and growing range of Diehl Aerospace equipment. This includes everything from cabin lighting units for both Airbus and Boeing platforms, to avionics equipment such as the Slat Flap Control Computer for the Airbus fleet.
Not only is the agreement with Diehl Aerosystems a clear testament of Satair´s strong support levels towards the principal. It also strongly underlines that Diehl Aerosystems has a high confidence in its partnership with Satair – among others things in contributing to Diehl Aerospace & Diehl Aircabin's Top 10 ranking in the Airbus Suppliers Rating 2012.
“We are extremely pleased with our cooperation with Diehl Aerosystems, and we are fully confident that our partnership will continue to grow from strength to strength in the years to come”, Rene Frandsen ends.
