Curtis Instruments Inc. (Mount Kisco, N.Y.), a developer and manufacturer of controls and instrumentation for electric and non-automotive vehicles, is teaming with Flight Systems Industrial Products (FSIP, Carlisle, Pa.), which remanufactures and repairs electric controllers and parts used in electric vehicle control systems. The partnership will transfer remanufacturing and repairs from the Curtis facility in California to FSIP's facility in Carlisle, Penn. by Dec. 1, 2005. The action is driven by the companies’ joint desire to deliver superior service, responsiveness, and value to Curtis aftermarket customers. By focusing on what each does best, the partnership establishes FSIP as a Curtis Certified Service Center and entails FSIP repairing and remanufacturing out-of-warranty products. Curtis will support FSIP with technical support throughout the operation.
Curtis will continue to operate its out-of-warranty aftermarket business until December 1, 2005 at which time the service (including return and sales administration) of all out-of-warranty series-based controllers will be transferred to FSIP. SepEx-based controllers will be transferred in similar fashion no later than March 1, 2006.
