Donaldson expands alliance with Global Aviation Services

Posted 23 April 2013 · Add Comment

Donaldson Aerospace & Defense is expanding its strategic alliance with Bahrain-based Global Aviation Services (GAS) to cover sales and support of filtration solutions for fixed-wing general aviation aircraft and military ground vehicles, as well as helicopters in key Middle Eastern markets.

Under the expanded alliance, in addition to helicopter air filtration solutions, GAS will sell, distribute and support Donaldson’s line of filtration solutions for helicopter liquid and fuel systems.

This includes air intake, fuel, hydraulic and lubrication systems for general aviation aircraft, and air intakes for military ground vehicles (including new installations and retrofits).

GAS specialists will provide around-the-clock sales and full life-cycle support of Donaldson Aerospace & Defense military and commercial products in Bahrain, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates. The company’s resources include a bonded-status distribution depot at the Bahrain International Airport Free Zone.

“Donaldson’s advanced filtration technology helps customers throughout the world protect the ability of their platforms to perform critical missions while reducing their costs of ownership,” said Pierre Habran, director aerospace & defense at Donaldson Europe.

“Global Aviation Services has demonstrated expertise and its strong presence in the Middle East will help us provide even greater support to customers in these key markets.”

John Smith, CEO of GA said: “Our local presence in the Middle East will shorten the supply chain for Donaldson’s customers and our team of dedicated multilingual, aviation specialists will help those customers benefit from both time and cost savings. We look forward to working with Donaldson in supporting its customers in the region.”
