Aircraft interiors specialist F/List has acquired ACC Columbia’s upholstery operations in Erfurt, Germany, enabling ACC to focus on business jet MRO services while expanding F/List’s capacity and strengthening its service network in the Europe, Middle East, and Africa region. The financial terms of the deal, which took effect on February 1, were not disclosed.
In addition to the acquisition, F/List will partner with ACC for cabin refurbishments. “We are very happy and proud that we have found a company, i.e. F/List, that has agreed to take over our employees and thus our ACC Columbia-Interior facility in Erfurt,” said ACC managing director Nils Janssen. “We felt very comfortable in the negotiations with F/List at all times and look forward to expanding our cooperation.”
ACC provides maintenance on Bombardier, Citation, Embraer, Falcon, and Gulfstream jets from its base in Hannover, Germany. It also operates a site in Cologne. According to F/List, which operates eight locations in Europe, Middle East, and the Americas with 900 employees, the Erfurt site specializes in seat upholstery services and is of “strategic importance” because it will generate additional capacity for processing orders faster and more efficiently.
