As at 01 October 2022 NEW exclusive New Zealand distributor for KANNAD ELTs
Aviation Safety Supplies Ltd., who will celebrate a twenty-year birthday this year, has announced that they have sold the distribution rights of the Kannad branded ELTs to Avcraft Engineering NZ Ltd. Fielding. This comes into effect on 01 October 2022
Mat Bailey and Trina Futcher are excited about this new opportunity, and this fits well with their wholly owned company Aviation Radio Ltd, which Avcraft purchased in July 2020 to expand the capability of both organisations
It’s intended that Aviation Radio Ltd. will become a Kannad Battery Replacement Centre in lieu of Aviation Safety Supplies Ltd.
Trina, Mat and their team do not anticipate any changes to the service that Lloyd has given to the Aviation Industry over the past 20 years and can now offer a full supply and fit of the Kannad ELTs in Wellington as well as Feilding, along with being the exclusive Kannad distributer for New Zealand.
This major piece of news comes on top of the fact that Orolia Ltd, that owns Kannad SAS in France, has been sold to Safran. see
Lloyd has represented the Kannad brand in New Zealand for over 30 years. He says
“I still have interests in all sorts of products for NZ and Australian Defence so I am not retiring, just giving Trina and Mat the opportunity to build upon what has been a successful representation of the Kannad Brand”.
