Why is This a Great Opportunity?

This is a highly decentralized aerospace business that has acquired 50 aerospace stand alone companies over the last 20 years. Each portfolio company stands alone with its own president, functional directors and support functions.

They focus on the design, development and supply of proprietary engineered components and their products are flying on every aircraft made in the free world. They sell products to the original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and to the integrators that supply systems to the OEM and also support the airlines and other operators of aircraft through the supply of spare and repaired parts.
