Aerospace aftermarket, defence and OEM market provider Wencor Group has acquired Vermont-based certified part 145 repair station Aviatron, a specialist in pneumatic component repair and maintenance through its unique Designated Engineering Representative (DER) repair and Parts Manufacturer Approval (PMA) capabilities.

“We are excited to welcome Aviatron and its team of talented employees to Wencor. This acquisition aligns with our strategy of strengthening our PMA and DER library while also enhancing our alternative parts and repair offerings by bolstering our coverage for air cycle machines and starters,” says chief executive officer Shawn Trogdon.

“The addition of Aviatron allows Wencor to deliver a more comprehensive, cost-effective alternative parts solution to its customers. This acquisition aligns with our focused ATA chapter product expansion strategy for pneumatic systems. The Aviatron team is incredibly talented and will complement our focus on delivering innovative maintenance and repair solutions, operational excellence and best in class quality assurance within Wencor Group,” adds president of MRO and PMA Pat McCarty.

Since it was established in 1979, Aviatron has been providing highly engineered solutions, exceptional workmanship and quick turn times for its customers. It has an extensive portfolio of intellectual property that was developed by its team of engineers and has allowed for significant cost savings for its customers without compromising on quality or reliability.

“We are very pleased to partner with an organisation that shares our philosophy of developing alternative parts and repair solutions in order to provide the highest level of reliability, availability and cost savings to our customers,” says Aviatron president Hans Krause. “We're also excited about the substantial growth Wencor has experienced in the aftermarket over the past number of years and are confident that with this partnership we will continue to see the same kind of growth.”
