StandardAero has signed an agreement to acquire fan blade, compressor blade and vane MRO provider EB Airfoils.
A privately held company, EB Airfoils operates from two facilities in Palm City, Florida.
With nearly 20,000sq ft of operations and approximately 50 employees, EB Airfoils’ capabilities and expertise saw it granted OEM source approval or source demonstration for the repair and overhaul of fan blades, compressor blades and vanes on many aero-engine and aero-engine derivative platforms.
These include Pratt & Whitney, General Electric, CFM International and International Aero Engines platforms, with the company 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’s chairman and CEO Russell Ford.
“This acquisition marks another strategic initiative to continue to expand our worldwide portfolio of MRO and component repair services. Like StandardAero, customers choose EB Airfoils for its repair quality, quick turn times and prompt customer service.”
