Distributor PEI-Genesis will sell its portfolio of high-reliability aerospace connectors in South America under a new agreement it signed with a Brazilian aerospace component manufacturer.
PEI-Genesis signed the deal with AGS Aerohoses of Sao Paulo, a manufacturer of hoses, assemblies, rigid tubes, control cables and ground-support equipment for the aviation market.
Under the agreement, AGS Aerohoses will represent PEI-Genesis' portfolio of high-reliability connectors and design services throughout Brazil. The deal will bring PEI-Genesis' connectors, expertise and resources to the Brazilian marketplace, the companies said.
PEI-Genesis, based in Philadelphia, assembles and sells a wide range of aerospace connectors from Amphenol, TE/Deutsch and ITT Cannon, among others. It also serves the military, industrial, medical, transportation and energy sectors worldwide.
PEI's assembly facilities are stocked with more than $70 million of components from which it builds over 39,000 high-reliability connectors a day, with a lead time of 48 hours, according to the distributor.
Jane Fischetti, general manager of PEI-Genesis proprietary products, said the collaboration with AGS Aerohoses demonstrates PEI-Genesis’ “commitment to serve the global market."
Julio Cesar G. da Silva, president of AGS Aerohoses, said the agreement with PEI-Genesis will enhance his company’s capabilities “and fill a gap in the Brazilian market.” He said that PEI-Genesis has a broad range of circular and commercial air connectors and “a sophisticated facility with the fastest lead time."
