StandardAero has signed an agreement to acquire EB Airfoils, a Palm City, Florida-based aircraft engine fan blade, compressor blade, and vane MRO provider. Operating from two facilities encompassing nearly 20,000 sq ft and with 50 employees, EB Airfoils is one of a few companies in the world that has been granted OEM source approval or source demonstration for the repair and overhaul of those turbine engine components.
The privately held company’s portfolio of source approvals spans Pratt & Whitney, GE Aviation, CFM International, and International Aero Engines platforms. EB Airfoils is in the process of receiving additional approvals through source demonstrations.
“EB Airfoils expands StandardAero’s existing airfoil capabilities at our Cork, Kansas City, and Singapore facilities to provide a more comprehensive offering of hot and cold section airfoils with immediate growth for our component repair capabilities for blades, vanes, and other cold section component services to our portfolio,” said StandardAero chairman and CEO Russell Ford. “This acquisition marks another strategic initiative to continue to expand our worldwide portfolio of MRO and component repair services.”
