Hansen Protection alliance with the DSS Group
Recognizing the needs of Canadian Marine Professionals and the challenges of effectively reaching a large geography with diverse cultures and regulations, Hansen Protection has entered into a strategic alliance with The DSS Group of Companies. Comprised of DSS Marine Inc., NORD Marine Services Limited, DSS Marine Limitée, DSS Aviation Inc., and FitzWright Survival Inc., the DSS Group of Companies will work with Hansen Protection to represent and expand the sales and service support operations in Canada.
The DSS Group of Companies is a Canadian Owned group of companies involved in the distribution and service of Marine and Aviation Life Saving equipment. For two decades, the DSS Group of Companies has been developing a high quality distribution network throughout Canada and providing top quality technical services and solutions in a demanding and competitive market.
This new alliance provides a significantly larger Canadian footprint for Hansen Protection products in Canada with the addition of The DSS Group of Companies own marine distribution and service facilities across the country – with locations in Newfoundland & Labrador, Nova Scotia, Québec and British Columbia. This alliance also makes Hansen Protection products immediately available throughout DSS’s supply chain of marine distributors and dealers in all regions of Canada.
In addition, the alliance will provide a route for bringing the variety of newly developed Air Crew and Helicopter Passenger Suits to the aviation market through the DSS Group’s two Aviation companies. DSS Aviation Inc. and FitzWright Survival Inc. in co-operation with Hansen Protection will provide specialized aviation overhaul and recertification services for both Transport Canada and EASA requirements. This joint effort will provide top quality products and services for aviation professionals in all regions of Canada, at a critical time when new regulations are coming into force for operators.
This new strategic alliance between Hansen Protection A/S and The DSS Group of Companies is a very significant step in expanding the Hansen Protection brand in Canada.
