111 service center worldwide and new distribution partners
The company has been pushing ahead with the further expansion of its international network of authorised service centers by training up technicians. Both service mechanics from aircraft manufacturers and independent service engineers have been trained at the engine plant in Lichtenstein/Saxony and at the new training center at Superior Air Parts, Inc. in Dallas/Texas. These are now authorised to carry out services and warranty work on the Centurion engines. Aviation companies from the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and further countries in Europe have been incorporated into the worldwide service network on the basis of contracts. As such, the number of CENTURION service centers has risen within the space of one year from 60 in April 2005 to its present total of 111 in May 2006.
Two further distribution partners for the Netherlands and Hungary have been acquired in the form of Vliegwerk Holland bv and Hungarian Aircraft Technology & Services Ltd. In their respective countries, these partners will now be looking after both the service side and also the distribution for the CENTURION engines. This sees the number of distribution partners representing Thielert worldwide rise to eleven.
