AMS and AUTOFLUG go one step further

Martin Kroell, managing partner AUTOFLUG and Andrea Girolin, owner and managing director AMS Heli Design

Denison, Texas, - The German company AUTOFLUG and American company AMS Heli Design already concluded their first cooperation agreement in spring 2019. As part of this agreement, the first customer projects have been worked on jointly in recent months. The cooperation initially focused on the current seats for civil helicopters from the AUTOFLUG FLYWEIGHT® seat family. “The successful cooperation in the past is the basis for the next step for us, with which we will jointly position ourselves even stronger for the international market of helicopter conversions,” explains Martin Kroell, managing partner at AUTOFLUG. There is certainly a strategic advantage in AMS Heli’s geographical location in the USA, which will facilitate AUTOFLUG’s access to the market in this area.

AMS Heli Design is on course of rapid expansion and is expecting to acquire a growing number of helicopter conversions in the coming years, not least thanks to the innovative FLYWEIGHT® seats being integrated into its interior solutions for medical transport helicopters. “Our commitment in the past few years, the development and permanent improvement of our innovative solutions are being noticed and recognized in the market,” Andrea Girolin, owner and managing director of AMS in the USA, explains the decision. “To further secure our growth, we needed a strong partner by our side whom we can trust and with whom we can prepare for the projects ahead and AUTOFLUG is definitely the best partner we could choose” Girolin continued. “AMS has our same vision on lightweight and best in class products and they are complementary to our business so we are now excited to implement the jointly developed strategies and fully exploit the resulting synergies,” Kroell reported after signing the contract. When asked, both parties assured that they are looking forward to the upcoming challenges and further expanding the cooperation on the already accustomed basis of trust.
