Derco Aerospace, Eaton Partner to Distribute C-130, F-16 Products
Silkorsky subsidiary Derco Aerospace has signed a three-year agreement to distribute Eaton’s line of C-130 and F-16 products. The two companies did not disclose the financial details of the agreement.
Under the new agreement, Derco will distribute Eaton’s C-130 and F-16 components to customers in all markets, with the exception of the United States and Japan. The products that Derco will distribute will include spares for hydraulic, fuel, electrical and conveyance systems on the two military aircraft.
“Extending Eaton’s relationship with Derco through this venture will bring enhanced support to the international C-130 and F-16 communities,” said Einar Johnson, vice president of sales for Eaton’s Aerospace group. “This is also an opportunity for Eaton and Derco to expand our global presence as key suppliers of products and services for the military aftermarket.”
