QCP portfolio company Aviagroup Industries acquires CPP France

7. June 2021

Montierchaume/Munich — Quan­tum Capi­tal Part­ners (“QCP”) announ­ces that Avia­group Indus­tries SAS (“Avia­group”), an affi­liate of Quan­tum Oppor­tu­nity Fund II GmbH & Co. KG, has acqui­red 100% of the shares of CPP France SAS (“CPP France” or the “Company”) from US aero­space supplier Conso­li­da­ted Precision Products Corp. (“CPP”), a port­fo­lio company of Warburg Pincus and Berkshire Part­ners. — With the tran­sac­tion, the company will be rena­med to its former corpo­rate name Aero­cast SAS (“Aero­cast”). The tran­sac­tion was accom­pa­nied by the QCP team in Munich.

Aero­cast, based in Montier­chaume, France, is a leading alumi­num foundry for the aero­space & defense indus­try specia­li­zing in invest­ment casting produc­tion tech­no­logy. The castings produ­ced are used in various struc­tu­ral parts for civil and mili­tary aircraft and heli­co­p­ters. Custo­mers include well-known OEMs and Tier-1s from the aero­space indus­try. Aero­cast employs appro­xi­mately 100 people.

Avia­group brings toge­ther under its umbrella several aero­space compa­nies (Secan, Avia­tube, Indr­aero Siren and SAM) loca­ted in France and Morocco with a total of appro­xi­mately 1,000 employees. The Avia­group compa­nies actively exch­an­ged know-how and worked closely toge­ther to deve­lop complex custo­mer solu­ti­ons. In addi­tion, they use common syner­gies and struc­tures in the admi­nis­tra­tive as well as in the commer­cial area. Avia­group divi­des its acti­vi­ties into the focus areas Ther­mal Manage­ment, Alumi­num Tubes and Aero­st­ruc­tures. In the future, Aero­cast will comple­ment the tech­no­logy and appli­ca­tion spec­trum in the Aero­st­ruc­tures area.

Frédé­ric Saizy, CEO of Avia­group: “We are deligh­ted that Aero­cast will become part of Avia­group. We see inte­res­ting opera­tio­nal synergy poten­tial not only due to the physi­cal proxi­mity to Indr­aero Siren’s almost neigh­bo­ring produc­tion faci­lity. We have also recei­ved very posi­tive feed­back and support for the acqui­si­tion from custo­mers. Avia­group sees itself as a part­ner to aero­space OEMs and pursues an active conso­li­da­tion stra­tegy through selec­tive acqui­si­ti­ons to stabi­lize the value and supply chains in the aero­space indus­try for the bene­fit of its customers.”
