Dart Helicopter Services (DHS), a producer and distributor of more than 3,000 certified helicopter accessories, has entered into an exclusive agreement with Hawker Pacific to establish a stronger DHS presence in the Middle East, Asia, Australia and New Zealand. Hawker Pacific operates facilities in several Asian and Australian locations; Auckland, New Zealand; and Dubai, UAE. According to a DHS spokesman, the agreement opens Dart’s inventory of helicopter components to operators in Hawker Pacific’s markets. It will supplement the company’s existing operations in North and South America, Europe, Japan, China and Singapore. By using Hawker Pacific warehouses and service facilities, DHS will be able to provide readily available accessories to customers worldwide. “We are delighted to set these productive partnerships in motion,” said Jeff Shapiro, DHS president and CEO. “Affiliation with Hawker Pacific…will create exceptional opportunities for DHS, and we expect our new associates will enjoy comparable benefits.” The agreement is now in effect and DHS is already expanding its production and distribution to address new markets.
