Kuwait remains faithful to DCI for the maintenance of its helicopters

Posted 18 June 2012 · Add Comment

DCI has announced a three-year extension of its contract to maintain the Kuwait Air Force's (KAF) 28 helicopters.

For over twenty years, DCI-COFRAS, the Army and Gendarmerie department of DCI, has ensured the operational maintenance of KAF French-manufactured helicopters.
 
"The trust relationship established between the State of Kuwait and DCI-COFRAS teams has allowed this contract to be established," said General de Zuchowicz, executive vice-president of DCI-COFRAS. "The KAF regularly underlines DCI-COFRAS teams' technical skills deployed, commitment to the notion of service and constant availability in these operations demanding extreme professional rigor," he said.

DCI, a French service provider with activities on the entire spectrum of defence and domestic security, was created in 1972 to assist military equipment sales to foreign countries. Today, DCI is an upper medium size service provider in which the French government is the concurring shareholder. DCI and its subsidiaries has been a partner of the French Armed Forces for 10 years within the scope of service contracts and is endeavouring to extend its activities to European Union countries.
