Swift Fuel GmbH
Swift Fuels' base of operations in Europe
To ensure the worldwide acceptance and use of SwiftFuel, Swift has taken the very important step of establishing a subsidiary in Europe. This has been an ongoing process since late 2010. In January 2011, Swift Fuel GmbH was established as a registered company in Germany.
On February 26, 2011, a Letter of Cooperation was endorsed between Swift Enterprises and Swift Fuel GmbH in Saarbrücken, Germany. Swift Fuel GmbH has hit the ground running by working with Solution Air GmbH, an established aviation service and maintenance company, based at Flughafen Zweibrücken. Solution Air GmbH is preparing aircraft, such as a B60 Beechcraft Duke, for flight testing of SwiftFuel according to EASA rules. The B60 is one of the most challenging platforms for an alternative aviation gasoline because of the high octane need of the engines.
In December 2012, Swift Fuels LLC announced the acquisition of a 50 percent stake in Swift Fuel GmbH. This transaction allows Swift Fuel GmbH to license the intellectual property and technical expertise, including 100SF aviation gasoline targeted for general aviation aircraft, from Swift Fuels LLC. The business deal will allow Swift Fuel GmbH to develop and sell high-performance fuels, additives, and specialty chemicals across Europe.
This is an important milestone for Swift Fuel GmbH, as it increases their momentum in moving toward an unleaded solution for the entire European general aviation market.
