Remos Focuses On U.S.

Remos Aircraft CEO Theo Paeffgen has completed a series of site visits to all North American dealers. Paeffgen reaffirmed the company's culture of trust, quality and reliability, and provided reassurance that the U.S. continues to be at the heart of Remos' marketing focus despite difficult economic times. The 10 U.S. dealers signed new dealership agreements, discussed future sales and marketing, and learned about service-center network and ambassador-program initiatives. "I have an enhanced level of confidence in the talents of our American dealers," said Paeffgen. "As Remos is reaching out to develop a global market for its aircraft, it is essential to be mindful of the fact that our greatest potential for growth still resides in North America."
