Aviation firms Aero Precision, Kellstrom Defense merge

US-based Aero Precision and Kellstrom Defense have merged their operations to form a military aircraft sustainment firm named AllClear, according to a 17 August announcement.

The combined entity, which is privately owned, supports “over 40 platforms” for the US military and allied forces. It is based in El Segundo, California, where Kellstrom was headquartered, and its CEO is Darryl Mayhorn, who previously led Aero Precision.

AllClear said it has been integrating the two companies since March, when Aero Precision, which was a parts distribution firm, acquired Kellstrom, which specialised in maintenance, repairs, and overhauls.

When the acquisition occurred, Aero Precision said the deal would streamline sustainment by creating a “new bundle of parts and services”.
