"Aero Products was selected because of their outstanding performance in delivering exceptional support and value to our mutual customers. The company's established experience in support of the Bell Helicopter product line is highly complementary to our joint mission of helping reduce direct operating costs and improve service life by using the latest LORD SPE IIA elastomer technology and major sub assembly solutions," said Rodolphe Leroy, Manager, Global Sales, Business Development & Marketing, LORD Corporation.

This cooperative agreement broadens Aero Products' position to provide increased aftermarket support to customers operating select Bell aircraft models. The recent groundbreaking LORD warranty enhancement on several flight-critical components not only provides operators with incredible value, but also effectively aligns component service life with major maintenance intervals, thus helping further reduce direct operating costs and eliminate a costly AOG condition due to premature elastomeric failure.

"We believe this new partnership is a game-changer for our customers in both parts procurement and component overhaul servicing. It is our goal to respectfully challenge the competition by presenting our customers with comparative endurance test results of components utilizing LORD SPE IIA elastomer, and invite them to judge for themselves. All bearings using this newest generation of elastomer are expected to exceed a 2,500-hour service life with more consistent performance," said Ted Johnson, President, Aero Products.
