Jim Irwin Posted January 28, 2004 Share Posted January 28, 2004 Notice to Cozy Builders- Wicks Aircraft has elected not to continue as an authorized distributor of Cozy materials and kits. Because of this decision by Wicks management, we have removed Wicks Aircraft as a distributor from our website and Nat Puffer will do the same in the next issue of the Cozy newsletter. When Aircraft Spruce & Specialty Co. reached an agreement with Nat Puffer to acquire the Cozy design rights in 2002, Wicks management at the time agreed that the contracts in place between Co-Z Development and Wicks Aircraft would be transferred unchanged to Aircraft Spruce when the deal became official on January 1, 2004. The other authorized Cozy distributors, Brock Manufacturing and Featherlite also agreed that their contracts would transfer to Aircraft Spruce, they have complied. The new management at Wicks Aircraft however have decided that they will not honor that agreement that was made by their previous management, and we certainly respect their decision, which dictates that they are no longer an authorized distributor of Cozy Materials. I am very disappointed that Wicks has decided not to honor the agreement which they made, as Nat Puffer, who had a lengthy discussion with the current Wicks management on the subject. If Cozy builders wish to continue to purchase Cozy materials from Wicks they are certainly free to do so, although such purchases will no longer help provide builder support, newsletters, and other services provided by Nat Puffer through his arrangements with Aircraft Spruce under the terms of the sale. Aircraft Spruce is committed to working to working with Nat and Cozy Builders groups to provide on-going support of the design, and we thank Cozy Builders everywhere for your on-going support of our efforts. My personal thanks to all Cozy Builders for your understanding this matter and if any builder would like confirmation of the information above, I encourage you to contact Nat Puffer directly at Co-Z Development Corp. If you have any comments or suggestions regarding the Cozy program please feel free to send them direct to me at firstname.lastname@example.org Jim Irwin President, Aircraft Spruce Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
