Kopter establishes US subsidiary
Switzerland’s Kopter Group AG has formed a fully-owned US subsidiary, Kopter North America LLC. “It is a key first step for Kopter in developing its presence in the US, which represents a significant market for the company, says Chief Executive Officer Andreas Löwenstein. “The US is clearly a prime market for our SH09 helicopter, which offers the highest standards of safety, performance and comfort, coupled with low operating costs. We already have firm commitments from key American customers, as they see it as the perfect tool for a variety of missions, including EMS, law enforcement, passenger transport and utility. It is essential for us to serve them as close as possible to where they will operate it.
“The next step for Kopter is to establish an industrial presence in the US. Discussions are currently taking place with potential industrial partners and local authorities in different suitable locations. Strategic alliances will allow Kopter to accelerate the set-up and development of the company on this continent. In the midterm, the company expects to produce and assemble aircraft directly in the US.”
