Survival Equipment Servies Ltd (SES) have undergone certification to become a Gentex UK authorised distributor and maintainer for their jet aircraft, helicopter and general aviation helmet range.

Last week a team of engineers from SES undertook extensive training on all aspects of service and maintenance of their helmet range in accordance to the manufacturers requirements including helmet assembly, safety testing, fault diagnosis and parts replacement. This training was in addition to SES’s distributor status covering all product knowledge and fitting of the helmets ensuring customers obtain the appropriate advice and guidance on purchase.

The service functionality that SES will provide for Gentex compliments the mobile service workshop already widely adopted by SES customers. Engineers from SES can fully service helmets whilst out on-site preventing minimal operational downtime and the Gentex helmets will now be included to this service. Such a service is considered highly desirable in markets such as the Air Ambulance sector which needs to remain functional at all times.

Gentex Corporation is a global manufacturer of safety products, and their aviation helmets are just one aspect of a large safety portfolio of head protection and other facility infrastructure products. This certification will ensure that SES safety fulfils a seamless sales and service function to the full aviation helmets range giving guidance and choice to its customers in aviation across the globe.

Founder and Managing Director of SES Del Hall is delighted of the opportunity to partner with Gentex in the global supply & maintenance of the Gentex range. “SES sales & service capabilities in helmets & aircrew equipment assemblies are well established and we believe the Gentex range meet our growing customer demands enabling an effective way of purchasing and servicing”.

Charlie Hiller (Sales Channel Manager Northern Europe) of Gentex said of the relationship “We are very pleased to be partnered with Survival Equipment Services Ltd in the supply of, and maintenance of the Gentex range of Aviation helmets. It is a pleasure to be associated with such an enthusiastic, ambitious, and professional company. We look forward to reaching out to new pilots and crew members with our complete line of flight helmets and integrated communications equipment with the added value of the expertise and excellent customer satisfaction that Survival Equipment Services Ltd are renowned for.”

With this partnership, SES will be extending its product range by holding stock of Gentex products, offering aircrew helmet protection for commercial pilots, which will vastly improve on delivery lead times.
