11 July 2019 – Heli-Parts Nevada (HPN) has been acquired by Salus Aviation as they continue to expand their portfolio of companies within their group. HPN is an excellent complement to Salus’ existing Oceania Aviation business; with Oceania Aviation and HPN sharing a long and successful history working together.
HPN is the single largest provider of overhauled and used Airbus components and Safran Turbomeca engines globally and offers hourly engine leases to customers as part of its Engine Power on Demand (EPOD) program. Located Boulder City, Nevada, HPN operates out of a 10,000 square foot warehouse.
“We see this move to be one that will benefit us and our customers,” says HPN President David Lok. “This acquisition will allow us to expand our E-Pod and C-Pod programs, acquire an even larger inventory base and continue to support our customers with maintenance, component exchanges, and rentals".
HPN founder David Lok has 25 years in the aviation industry and holds Canadian, European and American certificates in aircraft maintenance and technology. David will remain in his position as President of HPN USA to ensure the continuation of quality support and services while joining the Salus executive management team. David will also become a shareholder in Salus Aviation.
With Airbus continuing to hold the majority of the helicopter market share, HPN is an ideal fit for Salus Aviation's strategy to build a profitable and sustainable future.
CEO of Salus Aviation Nick Mair said, “David and the HPN team’s passion for providing quality service to their customers is a trait that fits well with the values of Salus. I am looking forward to working with David to further extend the reach of HPN into the Asia Pacific region”.
“With a quality acquisition such as HPN, Salus is well placed to benefit from the increase in service offerings that HPN brings to the Group. Salus also looks forward to extending our exceptional customer service to the important US market”.
