Tulsa, OK (PRWEB) September 07, 2013
Aircraft parts distributor First Wave Aerospace announces appointment of international representatives in high-growth aerospace regions of the world.
According to First Wave Aerospace President Tony McAnly, who was formerly a principal in Team SAI, which is well known in the aerospace industry for its annual Global MRO Forecast & Analysis, First Wave’s business development plan and infrastructure is heading east in anticipation of growing markets for the next decade. “The best advice for someone in our industry is to ‘Head East Young Man or Woman,’ McAnly said, “While the commercial aerospace aircraft and maintenance market will be stagnant in North American and Western Europe, significant growth is shifting East – to Eastern Europe, The Middle East and Asia.”
To be positioned for future growth, Glen Hyden, First Wave Aerospace Vice President, and the manager in charge of the firm’s sales, marketing and recruitment of representative firms, introduced the recipients of the new five-year agreements in strategic regions. He said the following firms will provide consulting and business development of commercial aircraft parts sales and repairs management services for airlines:
● Dynatech Aviation Services, Pte. Ltd., Singapore, has been appointed to represent First Wave Aerospace throughout Asia. “Singapore is the gateway to Asia’s commerce with its ease of doing business and we are grateful to have an experienced firm that specializes in aerospace, like Dynatech, as our exclusive representative for all of Asia,” Hyden said. “We have known the principals of Dynatech for quite some time and consider them close friends and trusted business advisors and partners.”
● Excellence Establishment For Supplies, Amman, Jordan, handles all of the Middle East. Tim White, Vice President, Technical Sales, First Wave Aerospace, who has extensive experience working with commercial airlines and MRO centers in the region, said Jordan is the ideal location for representation in the Arba States Region for economic and political considerations. The United States-Jordan Free Trade Agreement was signed on October 24, 2000. It was America's first ever with an Arab State and has led to Jordan becoming one of the top 100 US trade partners. Under the terms of the agreement, which entered into force on December 17, 2001, the United States and Jordan agreed to phased tariff reductions culminating in the complete elimination of duties on nearly all products in 2010.
● Larry Szal Associates, NY, has the exclusive First Wave Aerospace appointment for Eastern Europe. Hyden said the principal in the firm is the former Vice President of marketing for a major US-based OEM, who retired with 25 years of experience, of which most of it was in Eastern Europe, where he logged 2,500 visits with 200 commercial aerospace customers in 62 countries.
First Wave Aerospace is a 21-year-old aerospace parts distribution firm with one of the largest inventories of commercial aircraft parts in North America with approximately 250,000 line items and 7 million parts.
