StandardAero Acquires EB Airfoils to Continue Expansion of Component Repair Capabilities

StandardAero signs an agreement to acquire EB Airfoils, a provider of fan blade, compressor blade and vane maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) for the aero-engine and aero-engine derivative markets.

EB Airfoils is a privately held company operating from two facilities located in Palm City, FL. With nearly 20,000-square-feet of operations and approximately 50 employees, EB Airfoils’ unique capabilities and expertise have enabled the company to become one of very few organizations in the world to be granted OEM source approval or source demonstration for the repair and overhaul of fan blades, compressor blades and vanes on leading aero-engine and aero-engine derivative platforms.

“EB Airfoils expands StandardAero’s existing airfoil capabilities at our Cork, Kansas City and Singapore facilities to provide a more comprehensive offering of hot-and cold-section airfoils, with immediate growth for our component repair capabilities for blades, vanes and other cold-section component services to our portfolio,” says Russell Ford, chairman and CEO of StandardAero.

EB Airfoils maintains a leading portfolio of source approvals across Pratt & Whitney, General Electric, CFM International, and International Aero Engines platforms and is in the process of receiving additional approvals through source demonstrations. The company's decades of experience and broad range of repair capabilities has allowed it to establish a steady base of recurring business with OEMs, operators and MRO providers.

“This acquisition marks another strategic initiative to continue to expand our worldwide portfolio of MRO and component repair services. Like StandardAero, customers choose EB Airfoils for its repair quality, quick turn-times and prompt customer service,” Ford adds.
