StandardAero has received all required regulatory approvals and completed its acquisition of Signature Aviation's Engine Repair and Overhaul (ERO) business.

Signature's ERO business is an engine MRO provider made up of the following five entities: Dallas Airmotive, H+S Aviation, WH Barrett Turbine Engine Company, International Governor Services (IGS) and International Turbine Service (ITS). ERO is headquartered in Dallas, Texas, with two overhaul facilities, (one in Dallas and the other in Portsmouth, UK), 10 regional turbine centres, one component MRO site and two parts/distribution facilities.

Like StandardAero, ERO is an OEM-aligned engine MRO services provider. It employs approximately 1,100 people with annual revenues approaching $500 million. Its customers include regional airlines, commercial transportation providers, corporate flight departments, private operators, government agencies and defence departments. The newly combined company now has nearly 6,600 employees in 55 locations across six continents.

“We are excited to welcome ERO and its experienced employees to StandardAero and to bring together all of the best practices of two successful, well-known and highly respected aerospace companies to provide a multitude of benefits for our customers,” says Russell Ford, chairman and CEO of StandardAero. “Acquiring ERO enhances our ability to be one of the most efficient and client-focused aerospace MRO companies in the world, providing superior quality products and responsive service for our industry.”
