In September, representatives of MS Aerospace visited with principals of Pattonair in Fort Worth, Texas, which is the headquarters for Pattonair in the United States. While Pattonair has long been a customer of MSA, the volume of sales orders with Pattonair has exploded in 2010 by well over 1000%. Pattonair is a global distributor and is one of the largest and most respected distributors of fasteners for aerospace applications in the world.

Pattonair’s strategy is based on operating globally while meeting the needs of individual customers with hands-on local support. It already supports leading companies including Agusta, Airbus, ATK, BAE Systems, Boeing, Eaton, Finmeccanica, Goodrich, Meggitt, Parker Aerospace, Rolls-Royce, Thales and Turbomeca.

A primary reason for the explosive growth MSA has enjoyed with Pattonair is due to the confidence that Pattonair has in the ability of MSA to deliver quality products for competitive pricing and on time. Responsive customer service to our customers is also a primary driver of this business. MSA is proud to have Pattonair as a customer.
