LINCOLN, NEB. — Duncan Aviation now has the capability to repair batteries from Securaplane Technologies. This capability is in addition to Duncan Aviation’s ability to distribute Securaplane main ship and emergency batteries.
“With more than seven years of Securaplane customer support experience under our belts, we've earned the ability to repair the emergency batteries as well as distribute and service them,” says Karl Detweiler, Accessories Shop Business Development and Marketing Supervisor at Duncan Aviation’s Lincoln, Nebraska, location.
During the renewal of its distribution and service agreement with Duncan Aviation, Securaplane decided to include the repair capability, which will help reduce turntimes. Currently, the average turntime for service or installation of the battery is two to three days. Unusual repairs could run longer, depending upon the type or amount of repair work needed.
“Prior to this agreement, Duncan Aviation could service or replace the batteries in the unit, but Securaplane needed to repair the unit, if necessary,” Detweiler says. “Duncan Aviation has an extensive battery repair shop and keeping this all in-house will certainly save the customer time.”
As Securaplane's original distributor, this is the first time Duncan Aviation has needed to renew its distributor agreement since its inception in 2005.
Duncan Aviation also distributes and services the Securaplane main ship batteries. The Enersys main ship battery is a true no-maintenance pure lead battery that can be shipped as NON-Hazardous/NON-Spillable. The battery can also be stored fully charged for up to 24 months with no ongoing maintenance or top-charging of the battery. The full replacement warranty on these long-lasting batteries is 30 months from the date of installation.
Securaplane also manufactures emergency power supplies. For service, contact 800.228.1836 or +1 402.479.4205 for Bob Tooker, Quality Control and Consignment Sales Representative at Duncan Aviation’s Lincoln, Nebraska, location.
