PAG Acquires Aero Technology
Atlanta-based Precision Aviation Group (PAG) has acquired Aero Technology of Long Beach, Calif. ATI provides accessories, avionics and instruments to the commercial transport, military and regional airline markets. Located on Long Beach International Airport, ATI operates out of a 25,000-sq-ft facility, employs 38 people including 18 technicians and holds FAA, EASA and airline certifications. Ketan Desai, PAG’s vice president of sales and marketing, told AIN, “The acquisition gives us an established relationship with the commercial, military and regional sectors. It allows PAG to expand its operations into one of the largest aviation markets and provides us with an additional platform for future growth.” PAG provides MRO and supply chain services for fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft. Desai said a significant capital investment in inventory and capability expansion is slated to bring PAG’s suite of MRO services to ATI, including wheels, brakes, hydraulics and electro-mechanical accessories. “These investments will give ATI the ability to enhance the services it provides to its customers, and allow PAG to expand its services to customers on the West Coast,” he added.
