Kansas City-based engine component manufacturer expands capacity with latest acquisition.

Enjet Aero, a Kansas City-based aerospace company, announced today they have acquired Integral Industries, Inc., increasing their presence in the greater Hartford, CT area. Founded in 1969, and located in Newington, CT, Integral Industries manufactures components and assemblies for commercial and military aircraft engines. The addition of Integral Industries will expand Enjet Aero’s manufacturing footprint to nine locations across North America, adding to their current capacity, and expanding Enjet’s position on premier engine platforms. Acquiring Integral Industries further positions Enjet as the partner of choice for OEM’s within the aeroengine supply chain.

Enjet Aero, will continue Integral Industries’ legacy of serving aeroengine customers by satisfying near-term recovery constraints in the supply chain and providing OEM’s with a long-term goal of a more consolidated supply base. Sharing a similar manufacturing methodology, Integral Industries’ skilled and talented workforce will integrate well with Enjet’s existing team and high-performance culture. Integral Industries’ owner, Ed Mascolo, will continue to lead as President of the new Enjet Aero Newington operation.

“Over the past few years, it became clear to me that at some point Integral Industries would need to partner with a larger organization. As I evaluated our options for the right partner to continue Integral’s legacy of high performance for our customers and focus on our employees, I decided on Enjet. We’re thrilled to become a part of the Enjet organization and excited what this means for our employees and our customers,” said Ed Mascolo, President of Integral Industries.

The Integral Industries acquisition will further support Enjet Aero’s ongoing strategy of being a world-class aeroengine component manufacturer for the industry and delivering on its promise of being ready, willing, and able to meet the expanding strategic needs of their customers.

“We’re excited to be making this terrific acquisition and growing our team with the addition of Integral Industries.

During the Epicor Insights conference, held in Nashville, TN, on May 24, 2002, Enjet Aero was awarded the Kinetic Excellence Award for their unwavering focus on core business optimization and consistent customer satisfaction which has led to significant growth for the business. The Kinetic Excellence Award was one of 6 awards handed out by Epicor at its Annual Users Conference where nearly 4,000 Epicor users attended.

With an established reputation as a supplier of choice within the highly competitive aerospace industry, Enjet Aero, at just six years old, have completed eight acquisitions. Initially, their approach was to let each company run its own operating system. At the Epicor Insights conference, a few years ago, Enjet learned more about Epicor Kinetic in the cloud multisite capabilities and made the investment to standardize on the cloud across their locations. Epicor Kinetic in the cloud accelerated Enjet Aero’s acquisition strategy and their post-acquisition execution.

Nicholas Mueller, Director of ERP and CEO Bruce Breckenridge were on hand to accept the award and recognition from Epicor. Looking ahead, Epicor Content Management (ECM) will be a major focus for Enjet to adopt the workflows, streamline approval processes and ensure compliance with government and cybersecurity mandates, like CMMC (Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification) and ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations).

“We have made significant investments to ensure we are operating in an efficient and timely manner that scales our investment across multiple facilities, utilizes real-time information to optimize production, and ultimately allows us to serve our customers to the best of our abilities. I’m happy to see the improvements and investments we have put in place are simplifying our processes and making a difference for our customers,” said Breckenridge.

Enjet Aero Bloomfield was recognized by Rolls Royce’s Civil Aerospace division as the “Most Improved Supplier” for 2022 during a two-day Global Aerospace Supplier Conference in the United Kingdom. This was the first in-person conference amongst Rolls Royce and their “Class Leading” suppliers since February 2020, and included a theme around “Power, Performance, and Purpose.”

Each year, Rolls Royce honors their top suppliers across seven different categories. Enjet Aero was selected this year from 1 of 3 finalists across their entire supply base in the “Most Improved” category, which recognizes not only significant performance improvement over the prior year, but also a commitment to a collaborative approach with the Rolls Royce team.

Gary Connolly, President of Enjet Aero Bloomfield, was on hand to accept the award on behalf of his team. “This award is a result of the hard work by our entire Bloomfield team to demonstrate objective evidence of performance improvement across every category of the Rolls Royce Integrated Supplier Scorecard (ISS),” said Connolly. “The commitment of the team over the last year is indicative of our continuous improvement culture focused on making our business better every day – for both our team members and our valued customers.”

Tom Cardone, Rolls Royce Account Manager for Enjet Aero Bloomfield, was also in attendance for the event and added, “This award and resulting ‘Class Leading’ ISS rating demonstrates the value and meaningful outcomes achieved from a true partnership which we are thrilled to have with our Rolls Royce supply chain team.  Their professionalism and guidance have helped elevate all aspects of our operations, and we thank them for their business and ongoing support.”

Bruce Breckenridge, Chief Executive Officer for Enjet Aero, said, “This is a great recognition for not only our Bloomfield team, but Enjet Aero as a whole. It’s a great thrill to have one of our team’s unwavering dedication toward achieving both internal and external goals be rewarded in this fashion by one of our world class customers. And I’m confident this award will only further our energy in ensuring we continue to think ahead, work ahead, and stay ahead as we strive across Enjet to deliver excellence to all of our valued customers.”
