Rotortech Services Inc. becomes a new partner in the Turbomeca Service Center Network

Houston, 21 February 2010

Turbomeca (Safran group) enhances its proximity support, by offering their customers more choices. We are proud to announce Rotortech Service Inc located in West Palm Beach Florida as an additional Service Center in our Network.
It will not only give Turbomeca Customers the power to choose their engine service provider but will also provide them with proximity support near their operations regardless of their size.

Leo Morrissette, TMUSA Vice President of Customer Support, "The goal is to provide an optimal level of support to all customers, giving them what they want and when they want it. The Service Center network is a way to reach the broad spectrum of our customer's individuality in the helicopter industry that operates Turbomeca engines".

In the United States each approved Service Center is FAR part 145 certified providing FBO (Fixed Base Operator ) and field on wing support, with levels 1 & 2 maintenance service, parts and tools.
Every center will have a close partnership with Turbomeca, undergoing extensive Turbomeca training, given up to date technical, commercial data, adhering to yearly operational and quality audits.

Our goal is to qualify Service Centers around the country were support is needed. In 2009 we certified four Service Centers to our Network. Rotortech Services Inc becomes the first in 2010 with other sites to follow which will be strategically located across North America.
