StandardAero has acquired Safe Aviation Solutions, including its Safe Fuel, Accel, and B&E Aircraft Component Repair businesses, from B&E Group for an undisclosed amount. The move allows StandardAero to continue expansion of its components, helicopters, and accessories (CH&A) division and portfolio of MRO and component repair services, the company said.
Safe Aviation Solutions provides testing, repair, overhaul, and modification of engine fuel system components; pneumatic, hydraulic, and actuation systems; and aircraft power generation systems for aircraft operators, OEMs, and MRO providers. It operates from two South Florida locations with a total of 56,000 sq ft of shop space and some 120 employees.
“Like StandardAero, Safe Aviation Solutions has a strong growth trajectory and is focused on serving…aerospace programs and operators around the world,” said Russell Ford, chairman & CEO of StandardAero. “The company is a very strategic fit for StandardAero and is well positioned to capture additional new programs and also expand its scope of services on current programs.”
With the new addition, StandardAero now has 39 primary repair facilities and more than 6,100 employees worldwide.
