FDH Aero is seeking to push its aircraft electrical and electronic component market position with this acquisition.
FDH Aero, a provider of supply chain solutions for the aerospace and defense industry, has acquired BJG Electronics Group, a provider of interconnect and electromechanical products for the defense, commercial aerospace, and space end-markets. The acquisition expands FDH Aero's role in the aviation and defense supply chains and offers customers access to a broader range of products and services. Based in Ronkonkoma, NY, BJG serves both OEMs and aftermarket-services providers in the aerospace and defense industry.
"The combination of FDH Aero and BJG enhances our capabilities in aerospace and defense electronics and advances our vision of being the most trusted supply chain partner to our customers and our suppliers," said Scott Tucker, Chief Executive Officer at FDH Aero. "With BJG, FDH Aero can provide an expanded product offering that improves supply chain efficiencies in a market that understands the strategic importance of supply availability and on-time performance."
Following the acquisition, FDH Aero will establish the FDH Aero Electronic Products Group (EPG), a division focusing on supply chain excellence in the electrical and electronic components product category. Mitch Enright, current President of Electro Enterprises, which was acquired by FDH in July 2022, will be named President of FDH EPG. The unified division will offer a range of interconnect and electromechanical products and services.
BJG's Chairman and CEO Glenn Davidson will transition into an active advisory role to support the integration, while day-to-day operations will continue to be led by the existing BJG team. Davidson expressed excitement about joining FDH EPG and forming an industry leader focused on service excellence and product expertise.
"Our BJG team is delighted to be joining with FDH EPG in focusing on service excellence and product expertise. This transaction combines two premier providers of military and aerospace electronic interconnect products," said Davidson. "I look forward to supporting the integration strategy and working closely with Scott, Mitch, and the entire FDH Aero team to continue to execute on our shared strategic vision."
