Wipaire Appoints New Distributor in China
South Saint Paul, Minnesota, May 3, 2011 – Wipaire, Inc. has appointed Aviation Supplies Ltd. as its first distributor in China. Wipaire is encouraged by the prospect of additional sales generated by the expanding global market for general aviation aircraft and aircraft floats in China.
Wipaire was first introduced to the China market through a trip sponsored by the Minnesota Trade Office in 2005. Chuck Wiplinger, now President of Wipaire, attended the “Mission to China” trip and has continued to foster relationships since that event.  In November 2010, low altitude airspace over China was opened up to general aviation, providing the first great outlook for exports to that region.
Wipaire currently employs over 150 individuals and has been manufacturing aircraft floats for over 50 years at Fleming Field in South Saint Paul and at a production facility on the Mississippi River in Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota.  They are proud to continue this tradition of manufacturing in our local communities.
“We are very pleased to have Aviation Supplies represent Wipline Floats throughout China,” stated Bob Wiplinger, CEO.  He continued, “Aviation Supplies has a proven record of success as a leading general aviation aircraft sales and services organization in China and should lead us to a successful entry into that market.”
