Superior Air Parts Appoints Southern Africa Supplier

Coppell, TX, February 23, 2011 — Representatives of Superior Air Parts, Inc., today announced that the company has appointed International Aviation Support as its only authorized distributor for Southern Africa.

“As we work to rebuild Superior’s position in the global marketplace, we felt it was extremely important to begin the effort by reestablishing the successful relationships we enjoyed in the past,” explained Timothy T. Archer, CEO, Superior Air Parts. “International Aviation Support has been a valued representative of Superior’s products since 1989. We are very happy that Keith Engelbrecht and his team at IAS will continue to be part of Superior’s family of authorized distributors.”

“Superior has always been a great line of products for us. The two companies are very complementary in that we both concentrate on meeting our customer’s individual needs,” stated Keith Engelbrecht, owner, International Aviation Support. “We work very closely with our customers throughout Africa so we know what their needs are. Superior has always been extremely responsive to helping us meet these needs, whether it is providing engine parts for grounded aircraft or creating complete engine rebuild kits.”

“The majority of our Superior Air Parts customers are the independent engine shops and repair stations that provide support for the numerous piston aircraft that operate throughout Africa,” Brian Hyde, Vice President of Sales, International Aviation Support said. “Many parts of Africa are only served by smaller, piston-engine aircraft, which makes this an extremely active area for their operators. Our ability to deliver quality parts on time and at affordable prices is critical to their continued success.”

Mr. Engelbrecht said that to ensure that it will meet its customers’ growing needs, International Aviation Support would stock Superior’s full line of piece parts, components and Millennium Cylindersä.
