AAR to acquire Telair International and Nordisk Aviation

  • 07-Nov-2011 03:08 EST

Telair provides standard container-based cargo loading systems for the Boeing 747-800 (shown).

AAR Corp. signed a definitive agreement to purchase Telair International GmbH and Nordisk Aviation Products AS from Teleflex Inc. The acquisition adds to AAR's commercial manufacturing business and enhances its ability to capitalize on commercial aircraft build cycles as a Tier 1 supplier to Airbus and Boeing. Telair specializes in the design, manufacture, and support of cargo loading systems for wide-body and narrow-body aircraft. Telair provides standard container-based systems for Airbus A330/340 aircraft types, as well as the future Airbus A350 and recently launched Boeing 747-800. Nordisk designs and manufactures heavy-duty pallets and lightweight cargo containers for commercial airlines from facilities in Norway and China and also has a strong aftermarket position. The businesses will operate as part of AAR's Structures and Systems segment.
