B/E Aerospace has appointed Satair as its exclusive distribution partner for oxygen products with full effect by 1 January 2008. The agreement includes the worldwide support of equipment from B/E Aerospace's recent Dräger Aerospace acquisition.
Since the acquisition of Dräger Aerospace last year, B/E Aerospace has carefully reviewed the requirements for distribution of oxygen products and Satair has been chosen as its distribution partner. Satair has represented B/E Aerospace oxygen products for more than 30 years. B/E Aerospace and Satair will be fully implementing the Dräger Aerospace product line by year end.
Satair’s CEO John Staer says: “This new and extended agreement is a further confirmation of the relationship Satair and B/E have had for 33 years. Satair is undoubtedly extremely well positioned to support B/E’s requirements, today and tomorrow. This naturally includes intensified support requirements for the A380 and the B787 – all of which is already part of our future strategies and supporting our company’s relationships with Airbus and Boeing as well as all operators and maintenance organizations."
