Curtis and FSIP become Partners
Curtis Instruments Inc. announces the formation of a partnership with Flight Systems Industrial Products ("FSIP"). Curtis Instruments Inc. is a world leader in developing and manufacturing controls and instrumentation for the global electric and non-automotive vehicle market. Flight Systems Industrial Products remanufactures and repairs electric controllers and parts used in electric vehicle control systems.
The new alliance will transfer the remanufacturing and repairs from the Curtis facility in California to FSIP's facility in Carlisle, PA commencing on Dec. 1, 2005. This action is driven by our joint desire to deliver superior service, responsiveness, and value to Curtis aftermarket customers. By focusing on what each does best, our partnership establishes FSIP as a Curtis Certified Service Center and entails FSIP repairing and remanufacturing out-of-warranty products. Curtis will support FSIP with technical support throughout the operation.
Curtis will continue to operate its out-of-warranty aftermarket business until December 1, 2005 at which time the service (including return and sales administration) of all out-of-warranty series-based controllers will be transferred to FSIP. SepEx-based controllers will be transferred in similar fashion no later than March 1, 2006.
