Honeywell inks MEA distribution deal
Dubai, November 13, 2011
Honeywell International has signed a new distribution agreement with commercial and military aviation supplier Transworld Aviation to provide Middle East and African defence operators faster access to its products and services.
Based in Arizona (US), Honeywell is a leading global provider of integrated avionics, engines, systems and service solutions for aircraft manufacturers, airlines, business and general aviation, military, space and airport operations.
The distribution deal will enable broader spares, parts and maintenance provisioning for MEA defence customers and commercial helicopter operators, (excluding UAE), said a top official.
Juan Picon, vice president Defense & Space International at Honeywell Aerospace, said: “Transworld Aviation has a strong relationship with local customers and is ideally located in Dubai, the central business hub for MEA. The company is very well positioned to serve Honeywell’s defence and commercial helicopter markets across the region.”
“As one of the region’s largest aviation distributors, we are delighted to be partnering with Honeywell in MEA,” said Abdulla Sulaimani, chairman of Transworld Aviation.
“This distribution agreement will enable Honeywell to shorten lead times on component orders and reduce turnaround times for repairs, ensuring customer order requests and queries are dealt with in a timely manner,” he added.
Transworld Aviation provides support services to commercial, civil & military aircraft operators, throughout Middle East, Africa, Europe and South Asia through OEM’s, approved distributors and repair agencies.-TradeArabia News Service
