Such achievement and such renewal of cooperation is the result of a constant dedication for delivering the best possible service, highest level of quality and the expected level of performance of an aviation equipment manufacturer", said Vincenzo Guerriero, VP Customer Services and Support at Safran Electrical & Power and Safran Ventilation Systems.
