Avionics giant Rockwell Collins has sold maintenance and modification firm Aerospace Systems Engineering and Support (ASES), a subsidiary of ARINC which traded as ARINC Aerospace.
The firm, which specialises in servicing C-130, KC 10, KC 135 and E-6B aircraft, has been acquired by Canada-headquartered Field Aviation.
The purchase boosts Field Aviation’s North American workforce to 500 staff.
Field Aviation has hangars at Will Rogers World Airport, Oklahoma City and Pearson International Airport, Toronto, and a parts manufacturing facility in Alberta, Canada.
Dan Magarian CEO of Field Aerospace said: “Expanding into the US market was always a primary objective, and this purchase begins that process in a way that supports our current operations as well as our strategic growth plans.”
