Satair Group’s support in the Americas is being dramatically enhanced with the opening of a new state-of-the-art support facility in Miami on April 19th 2016. Located just seventeen miles and 20 minutes from Miami International Airport, the 25000 square feet multi-million dollar building is four times the size of the previous facility.
The new facility will host Airbus proprietary parts commonly used by the region’s customers. In addition, it will accommodate a dedicated repairs area, a HAZMAT (hazardous material) center of excellence, and it will feature modernized production of aerospace hose products. In support of the Eaton's first class products lines, Satair Group has equally made a significant investment in its production facility and modernization of tooling to ensure the highest product reliability and satisfaction.
John Gattasse, Head of Latin American Sales and Support for Satair Group Americas stated: “The economic situation in Brazil and Argentina has had an effect across the Continent but we see the indications that growth will resume. The timing of this major investment means that Satair Group is positioning itself for the future in the Latin American aviation market. The growing success of airlines in Latin America means there are now major carriers in the region and we continue to work hard to support them”.
Mike Heaton, Managing Director of Satair Group Americas ends: “This new Miami based facility will allow an improved logistical availability for many customers, and will provide an excellent platform for Satair Group to extend and improve our service offerings in the Americas overall and in particular for our Latin American customers. In addition, our existing Miami employees do a fantastic job, and I am pleased that they will be able to work in this new facility that supports their excellence and commitment”.
Airbus Material & Supply Chain Services and Satair are part of Satair Group, a 100% stand-alone company and Airbus subsidiary with $1.3 billion revenue, more than 1,000 employees worldwide and a vision to become the global market leader in the civil aircraft parts management business in 2017.
