universal avionics announces 2018 top dealers
December 21, 2018
Universal Avionics (UA) is pleased to announce its Top Dealers of 2018 to be Global Aviation Technologies for Americas Dealer of the Year and Scandinavian Avionics A/S for International Dealer of the Year.
Each year, Universal Avionics recognizes two dealers out of several hundred in its Authorized Dealer Network who have achieved outstanding sales performance for the year. Both companies’ expertise and commitment to pursuing UA upgrades were instrumental in their successful performance this year.
Global Aviation Technologies (GAT) has always been a strong promoter of UA products, even before officially joining as an Authorized Dealer in 2015. Their knowledge and background on the Learjet product line is extensive and was vital in being awarded the C-21 avionics modification program with the U.S. Air Force (military version of the Learjet 35A). This program was a key success factor that catapulted GAT into the Top Dealer spot for 2018.
Scandinavian Avionics A/S has a solid reputation for being one of UA’s top Authorized Dealers with multiple awards to show for it. Their hard work and dedication to UA products is reflected in their exceptional sales for 2018. Key factors to Scandinavian Avionics’ success this past year were the LET-410 forward fit and SAAB-340 upgrade programs. Additional ADS-B Out upgrades and CVR-120 installations also contributed as new European mandates approach.
“We are excited about all of the programs won through our Authorized Dealer Network this past year,” said Robert Clare, Universal Avionics Director of Sales. “Both GAT and Scandinavian Avionics have proven their commitment to the sale, installation, and maintenance of avionics,” he added. “Their teams’ skills, dedication, and enthusiasm stands out and we are delighted to present them with this well-deserved Top Dealer award.”
“I remember when we first approached UA and wanted to be an Authorized Dealer,” said Woody Cottner, Global Aviation Technologies V.P. Business Development. “At the time, we did not satisfy all of the gates required,” he added. “But here we are today and have been honored with Top Dealer of the year. We are extremely grateful and thankful that UA gave us an opportunity to represent such an outstanding organization. The customer service at UA is second to none. We are looking forward to furthering the relationship between GAT and UA.”
“We are extremely proud to be awarded as Top International Dealer for Universal Avionics again, now for the 6th time in 8 years,” said Hardy B. Truelsen, Scandinavian Avionics V.P. and Sales Director. “This award is a result of a capable UA product portfolio, which together with our turn-key solutions (equipment, installation, certification, maintenance, and training) is a most attractive package to the professional aviation market,” he added. We will of course continue to develop the concepts in order to optimize customer service and satisfaction, and hopefully qualify for more awards in the future.”
