We recently had the pleasure of hosting Mark Merten, from Australia, at our Boise manufacturing facility. Mark is a representative of GSE Services Pty Ltd., our new distributor in the Australia Oceania region. Mark embarked on quite the extensive motorcycle journey down the West Coast of the North American continent, heading South from Alaska, and decided to stop by to check out our facility. After riding his motorcycle for 5 days, and 2600 miles later, Mark showed up prepared to learn about our aircraft ground support equipment manufacturing processes and ended up shipping 5 towbars back to Australia. Mark is pictured here (left) with AERO Sales Representative Brad Streeter.
During his facility tour and equipment training session, Mark helped our oxygen and nitrogen department build our oxygen and nitrogen aircraft service carts. Specifically, Mark worked on our 2-bottle Tilt N Tow service cart and our 3-bottle remote service oxygen cart, complete with an onboard nitrogen power supply, which replaces the compressed shop air normally used on a hanger-specific unit. Mark also participated in the building of a JetGo 550Mti ground power unit (GPU), one product in our new line of aircraft GPUs. He enthusiastically jumped in and got his hands dirty, right alongside our diesel mechanics. Mark had no problem fitting in with our crew and we are confident his company will complement and enhance our global image in the GSE industry.
Mark’s adventurous spirit is an indication of how he and his team at GSE Services will represent our brand in the Australia Oceania region, which consists of Fiji, New Zealand and the surrounding islands. We are proud to have influential representation in this region and hope to expand our reach through this distribution agreement. Mark’s intimate knowledge of the aircraft GSE industry is an exceptional asset to us and will prove invaluable as more of our aircraft gse products are supplied to airlines, FBOs, MROs and corporate flight departments in and around Australia.
Good luck Mark! We are envious of your adventurous spirit and wish GSE Services success as we establish and grow our new business relationship. Cheers, mate! Throw another shrimp on the barbie for us!
