The Law of

Demand...and Supply


The new safety regulations demand a lot from you. They demand a lot from us, too.

But Sperry is accustomed to meeting demands.

For more than 50 years we've been a major manufacturer of steering system components.

Today, only Sperry can supply a complete steering system.

To help you comply with the latest rules, we've established a Retrofit Survey Team.

Each engineer on the team is thoroughly familiar with all regulations. Call him for a survey and he'll evaluate your present system. His subsequent proposal will recommend only the equipment you'll need and he'll outline a compliance schedule, including cost and time estimates, and all the services required.

Sperry provides system design review, submission of proposal for regulatory body approval, installation supervision, assistance during final inspection, and supervision of sea trials.

The Sperry Retrofit Survey. When you need to know what you need.
