Dunlop Aircraft Tyres Appoints Tech Sales Manager in Anticipation of China Growth
Having opened late in 2009, Dunlop Aircraft Tyres’ joint venture distribution and retreading facility, Dunlop Taikoo (Jinjiang) Aircraft Tyres Company Limited is expanding its sales department in anticipation of coming growth in Chinese aeronautics. The company has appointed Jenny Chen as a technical sales manager, joining the company from the Guangzhou office of P&R International, where for over four years she was business development manager with responsibility for the Chinese aviation marketplace. She is tasked with generating new business as well as providing account management to existing airline and MRO customers throughout China.
“Our new facility has already attracted orders from new customers and our attendance at the Singapore Air Show earlier this year raised further interest in our compelling offer,” said Dunlop Aircraft Tyres’ chairman, Ian Edmondson. “Jenny will build on this early success by using her contacts and experiences of the Chinese aviation sector to help us further develop our customer base in the region.”
Dunlop Aircraft Tyres, the world’s only specialist aircraft tyre manufacturer, opened its new facility in November 2009, boosting the company’s competitiveness in the global aviation marketplace and bringing increased tyre choice to aircraft operators in Asia Pacific.
Dunlop Taikoo (Jinjiang) Aircraft Tyres Company Limited is a joint venture with Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Company Limited (HAECO) (28 per cent) and Taikoo (Xiamen) Aircraft Engineering Company Limited (TAECO) (9 per cent). The operation has full site and product approval from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) and the site has also received full repair-station approval from EASA.
