The Woodlands, Texas - September 17, 2007 - StarterGenerator.com today announced the placement of a blanket purchase order with Unison Industries (formerly Aircraft Parts Corp.), for starter generators applicable to various turboprop, turbojet, and turbine helicopter platforms. Additional inventory will bolster starter generator support stock to address increasing demand for Unison exchange and upgrade programs. Deliveries are scheduled to begin 1Q2008.
"We believe our value as a supply chain partner is directly proportional to the breadth and depth of our shippable inventory on any given day", stated Garrett W. Schwarz, president of StarterGenerator.com. "Customers have a multitude of options and choices when sourcing parts and without owning or possessing a comprehensive inventory, it is very difficult to participate in the sale, especially given the urgent nature typical of starter generator requirements. Market indicators suggest a robust introduction of Unison starter generators into the market via new aircraft and helicopter deliveries presently, and over the past few years. This new order not only reaffirms our committment to Unison factory programs and tireless support of the aftermarket, but it strategically positions us to embrace anticipated demand and to realize solid growth in the future. With OEM quality, off the shelf delivery, and value pricing - the customer wins, and we are glad to be a part of that equation," added Mr. Schwarz.
