TP Aerospace Goes into Distribution, Expands Wheel and Brake Business

In early October, TP Aerospace added a third commercial division to the company and officially entered the distribution business with the inauguration of TP Aerospace Distribution. This is another step in TP Aerospace’s plan to offer fully comprehensive wheel and brake solutions for aircraft operators worldwide. The expansion is a continued part of the company’s expansion strategy, which they are callinng the “Green Sunrise.”

With TP Aerospace Distribution, together with the existing businesses TP Aerospace PRO and TP Aerospace Trading, the company now extends its portfolio to not only include aftermarket wheels and brakes, but also piece parts, rotables and OEM supported brake MRO services.

“We have been working towards adding a distribution setup to our existing business for some time, and becoming a distributor is a natural step in our continued journey to be a complete one-stop-shop for aircraft wheels and brakes,” says Thomas Ibsoe, president and founder of TP Aerospace and goes on to explaining the strategic importance of the initiative: “With this addition, we’re confirming our commitment to continuing to make wheels and brakes activities more simple for operators and maintain the position as the No. 1 choice of wheels and brakes in the global aviation industry.”

TP Aerospace’s distribution division will be headed by Anne Kalman, shown here, global distribution director, who has been with the company since 2019 and brings her expertise dealing with aircraft operators as well as suppliers and OEMs.
