Fine Tubes and Superior Tube expand operations in the Far East with new distribution partner in Japan
UK-based Fine Tubes and US-based Superior Tube have signed a two year contract with Fusoh Aviation Co., to act as their distribution partner in Japan for the aerospace and space sectors. Fine Tubes and Superior Tube see significant growth potential in the Japanese aerospace and space markets and, having worked successfully with Fusoh on an ad-hoc basis in recent years, were keen to establish a formal partnership. Fusoh Aviation’s client base features a number of global aerospace manufacturers, including IHI Corporation, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Fuji Heavy Industries and also the Japan MOD and Coast Guard. Both Fine Tubes and Superior Tube have a long record of manufacturing high performance titanium, stainless steel and nickel alloy tubes for some of the world’s most advanced civil and military aerospace projects. Designed for airframes, engines and flight surface actuation, the tubing supplied by the two companies is capable of withstanding some of the most critical conditions, including high pressures and high temperatures.
