STS Component Solutions announces latest joint venture with Ancra International
STS Component Solutions and Ancra International reported the emergence of a distribution agreement to provide Power Drive Units (PDU’s) to commercial aircraft and freighters that are used on Boeing 767 -200/300/400 and Boeing 777 -200/300 Aircraft. Ancra International develops and manufactures Power Drive Units designed as drop-in replacements for original equipment. These aftermarket PDU’s do not require any modification to the aircraft structural or electrical connections. Ancra’s Flexible Designs allow operators the ability to quickly arrange PDU configurations at a moment’s notice. The PDU feature a sophisticated control system to detect soft and hard pallet characteristics for optimized traction and reliability. For over 40 years Ancra International has become a well-known designer and manufacturer of these self-lifting, low profile units that weigh less than 9 pounds, resulting in a lower cost alternative to other in service PDU’s.
