Kopter Group has formed a new fully owned subsidiary in the US, the company announced on 9 July.

The establishment of Kopter North America is part of the company’s plans to expand its presence in the US.

The next step is to establish an industrial presence in the US. Discussions are currently taking place with potential industrial partners and local authorities in different suitable locations. In the medium-term, the company expects to produce and assemble aircraft directly in the US.

Andreas Löwenstein, CEO of Kopter Group, said: ‘The US is clearly a prime market for our single engine helicopter, which offers the highest standards of safety, performance and comfort, coupled with low operating costs.

‘We already have firm commitments from key American customers to acquire our SH09, as they see it as a perfect tool for a variety of missions, including EMS, law enforcement, passenger transport and utility. It is essential for us to serve them as close as possible to where they will operate it.’
