This agreement includes the entire aerospace product range available to airline and MRO customers, but is primarily focused on the Potable Water System Compressor, which is sole source equipment for several Boeing aircraft.
As the original OEM of this product, SAMB also manufactures full units and spares and offers repair services.
Satair Group’s role will be to use its worldwide coverage, global customer base and proven distribution expertise to maintain inventory and promote sales of spares and components worldwide.
“This arrangement with SAMB is brand new but Satair Group has already enjoyed a good business relationship with other Senior Aerospace companies”, said Morten Olsen, Vice President of Product Management at Satair Group, “Now with this new distributorship agreement with SAMB, we will add these products into our broader worldwide stock portfolio to provide a faster service to our customers. We look forward to the opportunity of providing a great value-added service to SAMB and their customers.”
“Our airline customers are an important element of our business. For 60 years Senior Aerospace Metal Bellows has designed and manufactured commercial aircraft components including our potable water system compressor, maintenance free accumulators, engine oil sensors, bellows seals and anti-skid brake couplings. It is through our commitment to customers that we decided to establish a new relationship with Satair Group. Through the agreement SAMB will have access to a true worldwide distribution network that will stock our products where and when our customers need them. We look forward to partnering with Satair Group and their proactive and comprehensive sales force. We expect that together we will grow our aftermarket business even further and we are looking forward to continuously supporting our customers and exceeding their expectations” said Benjamin Casper, Manager, Airline Aftermarket at SAMB.
