US aircraft parts maker WHI Global has purchased the assets of Aero-Bond Corporation, a smaller but similar firm also based in the US.
WHI Global, which is owned by New York City-based investment firm RVE Partners, said on 31 December that the acquisition, combined with recent equipment purchases, will enable it to offer more manufacturing capabilities to its customers.
Founded in 1989, Aero-Bond has two buildings totaling 60,000 square feet in Springfield, Massachusetts. According to its website, its customers include Bell, Lockheed Martin’s Sikorsky company, Triumph Group, and United Technologies Corp (UTC).
“Aero-Bond currently focuses on the rotorcraft market and supports many different Sikorsky and Bell platforms,” said David Caputo, RVE’s managing partner and WHI’s board chair.
