Dealers And Agents Added In More Than A Dozen Countries
Piper Aircraft Inc. has dramatically increased its global sales reach with an unprecedented expansion of its dealer network in 2011 and 2012. “Just in the past two years Piper has added dealers and agents in more than a dozen countries to our sales force, and now the team is positioned on every continent in the world and in most countries where there is a potential to sell new airplanes,” said Drew McEwen, Piper’s Head of Global Sales and Business Development.
Overall, Piper has 22 dealers in the Americas covering the United States and 15 other countries in North America, Central America and South America. In addition, the company has 18 sales representatives covering 42 industrialized countries in the rest of the world, including EMEA and Asia-Pacific. Moreover, 50 Piper Authorized Service Centers are approved by the company to work on Piper aircraft in the Americas, and 30 more Piper Service Centers support aircraft throughout the rest of the world.
“Our intention is to blanket the world in every country where the economy will benefit from our economical line of M-Class, Twin-Class and Trainer Class Aircraft,” McEwen said. “With the exploding need for new pilots in the Asia-Pacific region Piper Aircraft is positioned to take full advantage of our single and twin-engine training aircraft’s ability to fulfill important pilot training requirements.”
