PAG expands Latam presence through EFIX addition
Precision Aviation Group already has a presence in Brazil, and its services will be strengthened by the acquisition of São José dos Campos-based EFIX. The companies' combined offering will be stronger for it.
EFIX's specialisms include landing gear, hydraulic/pneumatic, electrical accessories, starter generators, batteries and avionics.

Precision Aviation Group (PAG), a provider of MRO and supply chain solutions for fixed and rotary-wing aircraft with facilities in the US, Canada, Australia, Singapore and Brazil, has acquired São José dos Campos, Brazil based EFIX Aviation Support (EFIX). EFIX specialises in MRO services for the South American aerospace and defence market, with a diverse capabilities list that includes landing gear, hydraulic/pneumatic, electrical accessories, starter generators, batteries and avionics. Its repair station holds both ANAC and EASA certifications.

PAG president and CEO David Mast states: “We are excited about the acquisition of EFIX and look forward to working with the team as we continue to expand our MRO and supply chain services in Latin America. The addition of EFIX gives PAG its 11th repair station globally and further diversifies our MRO capabilities by expanding services into landing gear, and hydraulic and pneumatic component services. Additionally, EFIX expands our footprint in Brazil where we've had a presence since 2015, enabling our customers to benefit from in-country MRO support and expanded local inventory levels, quicker turnaround times and expanded AOG support.”

EFIX president Ricardo Malato adds: “David Mast and the PAG team have built a reputation for industry-leading customer service and capabilities. The acquisition by PAG enables us to provide enhanced capabilities for our customers specifically in avionics, LCD display repairs, accessories, instruments, fuel components and wheels/brakes. These capabilities are supported by our immediate access to PAG's inventory valued at more than $45 million (USD), including products from over 80 OEMs. PAG is well positioned and services very diverse end markets, and we look forward to building on its strong foundation by helping it grow and meet evolving customer needs.”
