MILWAUKEE, Wis., Dec. 20, 2017 – Derco, a Lockheed Martin Company (NYSE: LMT), has signed a five-year distribution agreement extension with Triumph Engine Control Systems to be the distributor of pump assembly spares for the 54H60 propeller system. Under the agreement, Derco will continue to distribute spares in support of C-130 and P-3 international operations effective immediately.
“Derco continues to be a proven partner and has unfailingly delivered Triumph product to international operators,” said Roger Gonet, business development manager at Triumph. “Customers depend on timely and cost-effective Triumph products to keep their fleet operational and Derco has consistently exceeded their expectations. This renewal is testament to their ability to fulfill market demands and we are looking forward to continuing our relationship with them.”
In addition to distributing Triumph’s 54H60 pump assembly, Derco is the authorized distributor of 54H60 propellers, the propeller system used on Lockheed Martin C-130 Hercules aircraft. Renewing Derco’s authorization as a Triumph pump assembly distributor means customers have the convenience of one source for distribution and repair of propellers and propeller systems.
“Every day we work to supply the highest quality products available worldwide and provide fleet enhancing solutions for our customers,” said Tim Cornell, Derco’s senior manager of strategic partnerships. “We are able to continue offering our customers value-added solutions due to relationships with quality original equipment manufacturers such as Triumph. Derco and Triumph have worked together since 2000, and this renewal as Triumph’s authorized distributor helps us accomplish that mission by offering immediate availability on parts when operators need them most.”
