Major platforms include Embraer's E2, Phenom 300 and Legacy 450/500 programs; Bombardier's Challenger and Global programs; Mitsubishi MRJ; Lockheed C130J; Bell UH1; and various GE, Solar and other industrial turbine applications.
W. Nicholas Howley, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of TransDigm, stated, "Both Tactair and Young & Franklin are long standing manufacturers of proprietary products with established positions, strong aftermarket content and an outstanding reputation based on product excellence. The highly engineered products will allow us to expand our content on a number of substantial platforms. The Company fits well with our consistent product and acquisition strategy. As with all TransDigm acquisitions, we see opportunities for significant value creation."
The acquisition, subject to regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions, is expected to close in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016.
