Aerometals Acquires FDC/aerofilter
El Dorado Hills, Calif.-based Aerometals has purchased the operating assets of FDC/aerofilter. Under a merger plan, FDC/aerofilter—which manufacturers engine inlet barrier filters (IBFs) for various helicopters including Bell, Eurocopter, MD and Sikorsky models—will keep its company name and existing contact information. Describing the move as a “natural fit,” Rex Kamphefner, president of the combined companies, says that Aerometals and FDC/aerofilter will “leverage our collective strengths” to develop a company focused on new products, advanced engineering and long-term growth.
