VSE Corporation to Acquire Killick Aerospace Companies

VSE Corporation has signed an agreement to acquire four business units from Killick Aerospace Group, expanding the company’s services in the aerospace industry.

The businesses to be bought include:

  • Prime Turbines: a provider of turboprop engine repair, maintenance and overhaul.
  • CT Aerospace: a supplier of engine parts and services  for corporate aircraft companies.
  • Kansas Aviation: a provider of engine overhaul and repair.
  • Air Parts & Supply Co.: a supplier of aircraft ignition and fuel control parts as well as starter generators and parts.

“This acquisition significantly enhances our sustainment competencies, consisting of supply chain management and MRO,” said Maurice Gauthier, president and CEO, VSE Corporation. “It broadens and diversifies our client base while concurrently expanding our product and service offerings for existing clients. Similar to our acquisition of Wheeler Bros. Inc. a few years ago, the addition of these aviation groups is in line with our long-term diversification strategy and the transformational pivot we are making into broader offerings and markets. We are focused on expanding our sustainment competencies to extend the service life of mission critical equipment, vehicles, ships and aircraft in government and commercial sectors.”
