Helitak Firefighting Equipment announced on November 30th, 2023, at the European Rotors show in Madrid, Spain, that the company has appointed Adrien Dillard to oversee sales of Helitak aerial firefighting tanks in the European market.
Adrien comes to Helitak with an extensive aviation background spanning over fifteen years of customer service experience in major markets, working for large aviation equipment manufacturers.
“We are very excited to have Adrien join the Helitak team and believe that his extensive experience in the aviation industry will benefit the company, especially in the European market as we continue to expand our operations internationally. With Adrien servicing the European market, it will greatly increase our ability to service our customers locally and provide a direct point of contact locally for our rapidly growing European customer base,” said Nick Noorman, Director of Operations for Helitak.
“As an Australian-based company, our ability to service customers no matter where they operate aircraft has been one of our key success factors in the continuing growth of our business, of which the European market has been a key piece. The addition of Adrien will only strengthen our ability in the market, and we look forward to what Adrien will bring to the team,” said Jason Schellaars, CEO of Helitak.
