In a move to expand into the Asian aviaton market, Australia-based aircraft protective coatings company Permagard Aviation recently announced it had signed a memorandum of understanding with aviation consultancy and services company RISE Aerospace.

According to Australian Aviation, in 2017 the aerospace antimicrobial coating market was worth $22.4 million. The market is expected to expand to $31.2 million by 2022, which can be attributed to the increase in safety concerns against contagious diseases and rise in aircraft deliveries.

Rauff Kareem, CEO and Founder of RISE Aerospace, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership, noting that both companies would be able to explore mutual opportunities and offer a wide range of benefits for the Asia region.

“Permagard Aviation’s innovative ideas are unique and the company has great presence in Australia,” Kareem said. “Now Permagard Aviation will extend its reach into the Asia region via RISE Aerospace’s established presence. This will benefit our existing customers in providing a total cabin care solution for their passengers. RISE Aerospace is dedicated to building this partnership to greater heights. We look forward to working with our partner to achieve even greater success in the future.”

Warren Bertschinger, General Manager of Permagard Aviation, said, “Permagard Aviation is delighted to have RISE Aerospace as a partner in the region. Bringing our expertise and experience together will enable us to develop innovative new products and services to offer in the Asia region."
