Kansas City-based engine component manufacturer adds new capabilities with latest acquisition
Continuing with its plan to expand capabilities and customer reach, Kansas City-based aerospace company, Enjet Aero, announced today the acquisition of Spartan Aerospace creating the third Enjet facility in the greater Hartford area. Founded in 1965, and located in Manchester, CT, Spartan Aerospace manufactures machined aeroengine components, sheet metal stampings, brackets, fabrications, and assemblies for the commercial and defense aerospace industries, serving both original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and maintenance repair operations (MRO). The combined abilities and new synergies make Spartan an attractive and strategic fit for Enjet.
With the acquisition of Spartan, its 70,000 square foot facility and 80+ employees, they will become the latest addition to Enjet Aero’s expanding set of capabilities focused on providing the aeroengine OEM’s with the proficiencies and capacity needed to satisfy their near-term recovery constraints as well as their long-term strategic solutions to supply base challenges. The skilled and talented team of industry experts from Spartan will also add to the existing bench strength of Enjet, providing a unique set of production skills and customer platforms to further enhance the breadth of products and solutions Enjet offers its customers. Spartan co-founder Allan Lehrer will continue to lead the Enjet Aero Manchester operation.
“The Enjet organization has a proven track record of success in the aeroengine component market, and we’re excited to be joining a team that is solely focused on working, investing, and growing in that sector of the aerospace and defense market. We’ve known the Enjet leadership team for quite some time and think they will be the perfect partner to help grow our operations in the future,” said Allan Lehrer, President of Spartan.
The Spartan Aerospace acquisition will 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.
“A large part of our strategic plan is focused on growing our customer base and platforms by expanding our capabilities and increasing our product offerings. The addition of Spartan Aerospace will help us achieve this with greater capacity and a robust set of production capabilities that include expanding Enjet’s proficiencies in highly complex fabricated and machined assembles,” said Bruce Breckenridge, Chief Executive Officer for Enjet Aero. “I’m thrilled to see our team grow with the addition of Spartan’s talented workforce and welcome them to the Enjet family.”
