Ecuador: Air Tractor 502XP delivered to Machala banana producer

The first Air Tractor 502XP to operate in Ecuador has been delivered to its new owner, Agrolineas del Pacifico S.A. (APACSA). The grower is located at Machala, in El Oro province. The sale was developed by Juan Phillips, a representative of Air Tractor dealer AgSur Aviones.

Oro Banana S.A. specializes in the commercialization of bananas, and Agrolineas del Pacifico S.A. is a subsidiary of Oro Banana S.A. The business was founded in 1970. OBSA is the parent company of a vertically integrated corporate structure whose subsidiaries handle the production, packaging, and transportation of the bananas from the farm to the port.

APACSA is a subsidiary of OBSA, and its primary business activity is the aerial application of agricultural pesticides on the group's plantations.

Jorge Alex: “Air Tractor is quite obviously a well- established and capable company, with extensive experience in its products… The 502XP power, price, efficiency and safety provides the best value for us. The plan is to purchase a second 502XP.”
