US presence for heli-safety system specialists

Parsippany, New Jersey – Tuesday 24th January 2012.  Aero Sekur, developer of aviation safety and protection systems, has expanded its global Group with a US facility in New Jersey.  Aero Sekur Inc. sits alongside the company’s UK operation, its primary manufacturing facility in Italy and an international network of MRO service providers.

A key focus for Aero Sekur in the US is the supply of life-raft and flotation products to the helicopter industry. Complete systems are supplied which integrate flotation bags or life-rafts with gas cylinder/inflation systems into the frames of aircraft or helicopters.

With a strong reputation for providing tailored, integrated solutions, Aero Sekur is a growing global brand that in the last year has expanded its presence across Europe, Asia and the Americas. Aero Sekur Inc. is headed by VP Ursella Slusher, the former head of a sales division for General Pneumatics. A support team, including Engineers and a Quality Manager, is being recruited and relocation is planned within two years to facilities with manufacturing, production and an FAA FAR-145 repair station.

Commenting on the investment in the American market, Mark Butler, CEO for Aero Sekur said:

“America is home to a large proportion of the world’s leading helicopter operators and the US therefore offers major potential to grow our helicopter customer base across commercial and military applications.

“The last year has been strategically important in Aero Sekur’s 40 year history. Our headquarters manufacturing operation in Italy has been restructured into specialist business units; we added Sensichips, a safety system microsensor company to the Group and we have launched Aero Sekur Inc.

“With over twenty years experience in the aerospace and defense industries, Ursella Slusher has strong established business links in America: she is well placed to develop the Aero Sekur brand in the States.”

Ursella Slusher worked in General Pneumatics’ Western Research Center R&D division focusing on Department of Defense and NASA activities for alternative energy. 

Aero Sekur is a specialist supplier of safety systems and advanced flexible structures to the global aerospace and defense markets.  The core competency of the business is the design and development of advanced engineered structures using flexible materials.
