Oakenhurst to Distribute SealVac and HandiFueler in UK and Europe

Oakenhurst Aircraft Services  will promote and distribute Spokane Industries, Metal Products Division’ unique ground-support products in the UK and Europe under a newly signed agreement. The initial products covered by the deal are Spokane’s patented SealVac vacuum fuel drain bowser which greatly speeds the process of defueling aircraft prior to maintenance, and the HandiFueler service cart used to optimize the daily servicing and refuelling of ground support equipment (GSE). The U. S. Department of Defense is already a client. They are typically used by all types of MRO facilities servicing fixed-wing aircraft, and rotary wing versions are in development. Commercial aerospace operations also utilize the products for their fueling needs and on-going maintenance requirements. SealVac is a defuelling bowser which incorporates a unique vacuum plate tool that attaches to the aircraft sump or drain point and ensures that fuel is rapidly extracted without any leakage or human contact with the fuel. HandiFueler is a ground support service cart which allows efficient and safe daily servicing of GSE with major productivity savings over older systems. “These products are cleverly designed and superbly made and they bring real efficiency gains to Aircraft maintenance facilities. Spokane Industries has a great track record with its existing customers and we are very much looking forward to working with them,” Oakenhurst Managing Director Charlie Parker says.
