Precision Aviation Group (PAG), a global provider of products and value-added services to the aerospace and defence industry, and LORD Corporation, a technology and manufacturing company, have entered into a strategic partnership.
PAG provides MRO and supply chain solutions for fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft, and LORD offers management of vibration, noise and motion control solutions – the collaboration between the two companies aims to promote and support current and next generation LORD elastomeric helicopter components, will help reduce direct operating costs, and will also improve service life by using the latest LORD elastomer technology products.
Rodolphe Leroy, Manager of Global Sales, Business Development and Marketing for the Aftermarket at LORD, noted that the new relationship would ‘ensure extended value for customers’ and added that PAG would: “Not only focus on supporting the Bell 206 and 407 platforms in the US and Canada, with an emphasis on tension torsion straps and main rotor hub kit components, but also assist with new LORD product improvements on additional platforms into the marketplace.”
Ketan Desai, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing for PAG, stated: “PAG’s global network and substantial investment in LORD products will make it easier for Bell 206 and 407 operators to access spares in real time, ultimately minimising aircraft downtime. This agreement builds on PAG’s strategic roadmap of increasing its range of support for OEM’s. We are confident that this expanded relationship with LORD Corporation will bring added value to our customers.”
