On the sidelines of the Xponential 2018 in Denver, the German engine manufacturer signed a distribution agreement with IHATEK Ltd. Effective from June 1st, IHATEK Ltd. will market and distribute the products of 3W-International GmbH, as well as those of Sky Power GmbH, in Turkey.
“We are looking forward to this strategic partnership. The team of IHATEK Ltd. is involved in many Turkish UAS projects and has gained a great amount of experience in the Turkish market over the past few years. This is why IHATEK Ltd. is the ideal partner for us,” as Karsten Schudt, Managing Partner at 3W-International GmbH, announced on the occasion of the signing of the contract in the USA. Gökhan Celik, Managing Director of IHATEK Ltd. adds: “The engines manufactured by 3W-International have an excellent reputation. 3W-International built engines are particularly suited for demanding projects that focus on efficiency, low fuel consumption and high TBOs.”
In addition to 3W-International engines, IHATEK Ltd. will also distribute the engines of Sky Power which were presented at the Xponential for the first time. “We will be working together very closely, as this is the only way to ensure that we can offer Turkish customers the best propulsion solutions,” as Schudt continues to explain. For this reason, the German engine supplier will also actively support IHATEK Ltd. on site. The development of service structures in Turkey is planned for the 2nd half of the year. “This will put us in a position to offer our customers consultancy, sales, maintenance and service as a one-stop supplier,” as Celik points out.
With more than 35 years of experience in designing, manufacturing and testing 2-stroke engines, 3W-International GmbH has developed and patented the newest generation of Heavy Fuel (HF) engines for the Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) industry.
The quality of 3W-engines stems from several factors. Technical expertise, long-term experience, tradition and state of the art production are the reasons for one of the highest quality levels in the industry. 3W is opposed to manufacturing abroad, so customers can be sure every engine is of German quality.
From R&D, prototyping, purchasing, manufacturing, calibration to in-time delivery, 3W guarantees constant and permanent quality control. Every manufacturing step is traceable. Employees are personally responsible for the fulfilment of 3W quality standards. Component suppliers and partners share these standards and guarantee these quality requirements.
