[Avionics Today 01-21-2016] Textron Aviation has completed the acquisition of Able Engineering & Component Services and Able Aerospace, an Arizona-based Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul company. Able provides component repairs, component exchanges and replacement parts, among other support and service offerings for commercial rotorcraft and fixed-wing aircraft customers and will extend Textron’s reach for MRO services.

“This acquisition aligns with our strategy to enhance MRO capabilities and broaden our service offerings,” said Scott Ernest, Textron Aviation’s president and CEO. “We believe Able adds value for aircraft parts and maintenance that will reduce lead time for aircraft parts and increase aircraft availability.”
