The Woodlands, Texas - February 10, 2009 - Effective immediately, StarterGenerator.com® will discontinue the promotion and offering of Aircraft Parts Corp. (formerly APC-Unison) sponsored exchange and upgrade programs. The recent sale of APC has brought about some significant changes. On February 3, 2009 we were informed by APC 'all exchange programs supported by APC and Unison will no longer be in effect.' StarterGenerator.com® will continue to maintain an inventory of APC OEM overhauled starter generators, however APC overhauled units will be available for exchange on a limited basis, with a completely independent pricing structure. We apologize for any inconvenience caused and appreciate your patience while we transition to alternative exchange product offerings. Meanwhile our 200 unit APC OEM certified starter generator inventory is readily available for exchange and outright sale. We remain an APC distributor for the sale of replacement components including starter generators, GCU's and expendable piece parts. Future plans include expanding our APC exchange pool to include other manufacturers and the launch of a completely redesigned website.
"Given our passionate endorsement of these OEM exchange programs and their relative success over the past two years, discontinuing them is clearly a disappointment", commented Garrett W. Schwarz, president of StarterGenerator.com®. "The good news is the aircraft starter generator industry is quite mature and abundant with MRO resources necessary to sustain itself and produce alternative solutions which are innovative, value added and speak to the needs of our customers and the aftermarket. By leveraging our website, global brand, comprehensive inventory and financial capability, we will unite an ideal combination of industry resources and introduce high-quality, cost-effective, flat rate priced exchange solutions for both APC and Goodrich-Lucas starter generators in the near future", continued Schwarz.
