PIEDMONT SIGN FIVE-YEAR APU MAINTENANCE DEAL WITH AUSTRIAN AIRLINES

Piedmont Aviation Component Services, the wholly-owned subsidiary of TAT Technologies, has signed a five year APU (Auxiliary Power Unit) maintenance Agreement with Austrian Airlines covering its 767 fleet GTCP331-200 APU. The maintenance agreement for the GTCP-331-200 model is in addition to an existing contract between Austrian and Piedmont for the CRJ200 fleet GTCP36-150RJ APU.

Burkard Wigger, vice president technical operations at Austrian Airlines said: “With Piedmont Aviation Component Services, we have found a professional partner who is very committed to our inquiries and comes up with tailored solutions that fit our demands. Piedmont offers expert knowledge in APU maintenance and has already proved to deliver reliable and satisfying services in our cooperation.”

TAT’s president and CEO, Dr Shmuel Fledel, said: “We are proud of the solid relationship between Austrian and Piedmont. For the last four years we have been successful with the current 36-150RJ APU contract and the addition of the 331-200 APU model demonstrates the high level of confidence and cooperation between the two companies. The new APU agreement reinforces TAT’s leading position in the APU maintenance industry.”
