MRO Americas, 26 April — Satair, an Airbus Services company and world leader in the commercial aerospace aftermarket, and Eaton have signed a contract to renew their exclusive global distribution agreement for a multi-year period. Satair will now distribute Eaton’s fuel and motion control products from Eaton’s Grand Rapids, Mich., and Euclid, Ohio, facilities in addition to Eaton’s Titchfield, UK, facility, in the United States and the United Kingdom to the commercial transport segment.

Eaton is a world leader in delivering an unsurpassed range of reliable and fuel-efficient systems for today's commercial aircraft, including Airbus and Boeing platforms. Eaton's aerospace portfolio includes, among other products, engine fuel pumps, fuel distribution and vent systems and motion control solutions, all designed to optimize safety, reliability and weight savings while helping customers lower lifecycle costs and reduce emissions.

Satair and Eaton entered into an agreement in 2010 which marked a change in the dynamics of the support structure for Eaton’s fuel and motion control products, going from direct support of commercial aftermarket customers to support through Satair’s global distribution network.

“We are pleased to renew this agreement and enhance our close relationship with Eaton. We look forward to continuing to deliver world-class products to our customers across the world,“ said Bart Reijnen, CEO, Satair.

Mark Schmidt, vice president, Aftermarket, for Eaton’s Aerospace Group, added, “The extension of this agreement will ensure a solid foundation for further enhancement of the customer-focused service and support already provided to our mutual customers.”
