Aerospace Resources Ltd Signs Re-Seller Agreements for Libya

Red Box International of the UK and Eagle Tugs of the US have both chosen Aerospace Resources Ltd and their Libyan JV partners as re-sellers for Libya

Farnborough Airshow, 11th July 2012: Aerospace Resources Ltd and their Libyan JV partners SAS International Holdings today announced the signing of two re-seller agreements for aircraft Ground Support equipment.

Aerospace Resources Ltd (‘ARL’) will be responsible for the supply into the Libyan aviation market of Red Box International’s complete product range including Ground Power Units, Continuous Power units, rectifiers, specialist inspection equipment and light tugs. Red Box are providing continuous power supply units and GPUs for aircraft exhibiting on the static park during the Farnborough Airshow.

ARL has also secured exclusive rights for the Libyan territory to supply the complete range of civil and military aircraft tugs and tractors produced by Eagle Tugs of Michigan, USA.

Richard Blain, Chief Executive of Aerospace Resources Ltd, commented “Along with our Libyan JV partners and our presence in-country, we are well placed to promote and supply aviation support products to the re-developing aviation market in Libya. We are actively looking for manufacturers to represent and we are well placed to access this challenging but exciting new market.”

Since the fall of the Gaddafi regime last year Libya has been working to re-equip its air force and civil operators with more modern western equipment. UN trade embargoes are still in place, however ARL – working closely with the British government body UK Trade and Investment – is fast establishing itself as a key facilitator for companies worldwide wishing to access the Libyan civil and military aviation markets.

Signing on behalf of Red Box International, Managing Director Adrian Jackson said “We are delighted to appoint Aerospace Resources Ltd and their Libyan JV partners as our exclusive re-sellers in Libya. Red Box provide a wide range of robust, reliable and high tech ground support equipment which is ideally suited to the Libyan aviation market.”

Justin Akinleye, Global Operations Director of Eagle Tugs, commented “We are excited to be entering this new territory with exceptionally competent local partners who will be able to promote our products. As with many other territories, comprehensive in-country support will be provided by Aviation Spares and Repairs Ltd of the UK.”

The agreements mark the first in what is likely to be a series of re-seller appointments for the Libyan market which depends heavily on its aviation infrastructure.
