EDAC Technologies has signed a contract to buy the Connecticut manufacturing unit of MTU Aero Engines North America (AENA).

The purchase will add new product lines to existing EDAC services and help it to broaden its core competencies, EDAC president and chief executive officer Dominick A Pagano said.

“The new entity EDAC Aero will remain a supplier to MTU Aero Engines in Germany and will continue to manufacture disks for the V2500 engine programme,” he added.

EDAC develops tools, fixtures, jet engine components, composite molds and spindles.

AENA, on the other hand, manufactures rotating components, such as disks, rings and shafts for the aerospace industry.
