BERWYN, PA—Triumph Group Inc. has announced a definitive agreement to sell its Nashville-based assembly operations to an affiliate of TECT Aerospace. TECT manufactures complex aerostructure components, parts and assemblies from the full spectrum of traditional and aerospace alloys, and is headquartered in Wichita, KS.
The Nashville operations consist of long and large machining, processing and large-scale assembly. The two million square feet facility is located directly across from the Nashville airport. It has a workforce of approximately 300 people who support wing skin assembly and machining of stringers and spars. The business generated revenues of approximately $125 million during Triumph Group's fiscal year ended March 31, 2019.
"Today's announcement reflects the value of the factory, its experienced workforce, and the customer relationships Triumph and its predecessor companies have maintained for 80 years. This sale is consistent with our announced plans to exit non-core operations and position the company for reinvestment in new areas of opportunity centered on our Integrated Systems and aftermarket businesses," says Dan Crowley, president and CEO of Triumph Group. "Since 2016, Triumph has divested 12 of the original 47 operating companies as we reshape our portfolio and reduce debt to enhance shareholder value."
The transaction is subject to customary conditions and is expected to close by calendar year end. Seal & Associates acted as exclusive financial advisor to Triumph on the transaction.
Triumph Group designs, engineers, manufactures, repairs and overhauls a broad portfolio of aerospace and defense systems, components and structures. The company serves the global aviation industry, including original equipment manufacturers and the full spectrum of military and commercial aircraft operators.
TECT Aerospace is a leading manufacturer of complex aerostructures components, parts and assemblies, with operations in Park City, KS; Wellington, KS; Kent, WA; and Everett, WA.
