CENTURION STRENGTHENS ITS DEALER NETWORK
Lichtenstein/Saxony, November 23, 2009 – CENTURION has further strengthened its worldwide network of dealers with three new competent distributors, including one of Europe’s most important Diamond airplane dealers. CENTURION now has a total of thirty-three distributors worldwide.
“We are pleased to further expand our already well-established worldwide network of dealers and services with three additional competent distributors,” said CENTURION chairman of the board Jasper M. Wolffson. “The fact that we were able to recruit one of the largest Diamond airplane dealers in Europe with Diamond Aero SRL in Italy demonstrates that the demand for our reliable and proven engines continues to be high, precisely among Diamond pilots.”
With its principal place of business in Rome, Diamond Aero SRL – which also services Piper and Cessna models along with Diamond machines in its large airplane maintenance hangar – will sell CENTURION engines in Italy and Malta in the future. The well-known airplane hangar AERAC Sarl which is based in Cannes in the south of France was successfully recruited for France. And on the growing market in Poland CENTURION will be immediately represented by J.B. Investments near Warsaw.
Altogether more than 2,600 CENTURION 2.0 engines are currently in operation in Piper, Cessna, Robin and Diamond machines worldwide and have completed more than 1.7 million flying hours. Not only private customers, but particularly flight schools appreciate the economical consumption and reliability offered by this kerosene/diesel engine.
CENTURION is the world’s leading brand for certified, kerosene (diesel) piston aircraft engines for general aviation. CENTURION engines were the first in the world to be approved for kerosene piston engines. A global network of more than 300 authorized service centers is also available to CENTURION pilots. The more than 2,600 CENTURION engines in operation have to date completed more than 1.7 million flying hours altogether.
