Piper Aircraft has expanded Skytech's territory to include Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont. Skytech has been a Piper dealer for nearly 40 years, providing sales and product support to the mid-Atlantic region with offices in Baltimore, Maryland at Carroll County Regional airport and Rock Hill, South Carolina at York County airport.
In support of the territory expansion, Skytech will be appointing at least three authorised Piper service centres in New England. The group is expected to include long-time Piper affiliate Shoreline Aviation in Marshfield, Massachusetts, and a second existing Piper affiliate, Three Wing Aviation in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Skytech intends to appoint a third support centre, located in southern Maine in the near future. In addition to product support, Skytech will be appointing Tony Sammartino as the northeast regional sales manager.
“We are honoured to have been appointed as the exclusive dealer for the northeast United States as well as the mid-Atlantic region. With its current product range as the foundation and with the exciting addition of the M600 SLS with Halo System and Garmin Autoland we look forward to expanding Piper's market position within our new territory,” says John Foster, president of Skytech. “Additionally, our sales representative, Tony Sammartino, who is originally from the northeast, has extensive experience in the territory and with the Piper product line; as such he is perfectly suited to support our growing customer base and their aircraft needs.”
“Skytech Inc.'s reputation, knowledgeable personnel and full-service operation provide an ideal foundation for growing sales and providing support of new Piper airplanes in this important region,” adds Piper VP of sales, marketing, and customer support, Ron Gunnarson. “We are delighted to expand Skytech's territory and continue to work with them as we expand the aviation market within the key northeast states.”
