Breeze-Eastern Corporation (NYSE MKT: BZC), the aerospace industry’s only dedicated hoist and winch specialist, has appointed defense and security company Saab, a long time authorized service center for Breeze-Eastern, as the company’s first Center of Excellence (COE) in Europe.

As a COE, Saab is guaranteeing 30-day turn times and other enhanced services for product maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) work for HS-20200 series rescue hoists under the terms of an agreement that runs through 2019. In addition to expedited turn times, COE personnel are available to provide customers with flight line training and on-site technical support.

To qualify as a COE, an authorized service center must have extensive knowledge and demonstrated expertise in the maintenance, training and technical support for its designated product family. COEs are expected to maintain the same high standards for quality and responsive support that are factory-standard at the OEM in Whippany.

“The establishment of a Center of Excellence reflects the company’s commitment to improving customer service and reducing turn times,” said Rodger Hahneman, General Manager at Breeze-Eastern. “As a long-time strategic partner, we are pleased to have Saab leading the way with this important new program.”


Breeze-Eastern Corporation is the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of high-performance lifting and pulling devices for helicopters, military cargo aircraft, and other aerospace/defense platforms, including rescue hoists, winches and cargo hooks, and weapons-lifting systems.

Saab serves the global market with world-leading products, services and solutions ranging from military defense to civil security. Saab has operations and employees on all continents and constantly develops, adopts and improves new technology to meet customers’ changing needs.
