SR Technics has opened a sales office in Sunrise, Florida, to drive the expansion of its business in the Americas.
Entering the American market is a key element in the overall growth strategy of the SR Technics Group and the company says having a local presence is “a major step in developing the customer relations required”.
The new office, registered under SR Technics America, Inc, is headed by Steve Rugg, SR Technics’ vice-president sales Americas.
As part of its growth strategy, SR Technics aims to provide integrated maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) solutions for airlines based in North and Latin America, with a particular focus on component and engine services.
In partnership with Sanad, the aircraft component financing company incorporated in Switzerland and launched by Mubadala Development Company in February 2010, SR Technics will offer additional financing solutions, such as sale-and-leaseback options for components, engines and other assets.
“We are convinced that we can support airlines based in the Americas with MRO services that deliver the world-class standards for safety, quality, reliability and aircraft availability for which SR Technics is renowned,” commented Ray Sisson, SR Technics’ chief commercial officer. “By pairing our maintenance services with financing solutions provided by Sanad, we are extending our service portfolio well beyond those available from traditional MRO providers to offer our customers genuine added value.”
