US-based MRO FEAM AERO will extend its European reach with the acquisition of Northern Aerotech, bringing their total European line station count to 12 locations. This will increase FEAM’s global footprint to a total of 42 line stations.
Northern Aerotech has more than 30 years of experience in heavy line maintenance, and has technical capability with multiple Boeing and Airbus fleet types. They also hold EASA Part 145 certification.
The acquisition of Northern Aerotech follows their initial acquisition of BOSA, a globally approved aircraft maintenance provider representing FEAM’s first formal expansion initiative into the European market.
“The acquisition of Northern Aerotech marks a pivotal moment for FEAM, and we have extremely high expectations of our newest partnership. We feel that our company has done an excellent job of establishing our brand in the United States, and we look forward to bringing our value-driven service perspective to clients across the world,” adds Dan Allawat, chief strategy officer of FEAM.
“FEAM is most certainly in growth mode. We feel that the time is right to align with key partners in major markets worldwide to continue our growth trajectory and provide the highest caliber of quality and service to our clients as possible. Northern Aerotech was a natural choice; we are aligned from a value standpoint and we are extremely positive about the work that we will do together in the future,” explains Cam Murphy, president of FEAM.
“We are very pleased to be joining the FEAM family,” adds Morten Schalls Jorgensen, CEO of Northern Aerotech, “Knowing we share the same fundamental values and background, made it easy for us to decide on the next steps for our future. The opportunity to grow together as a group, having the collective experience of over 100 line station openings worldwide, is a statement to the industry itself, and an open invitation to all airlines that are looking for a partner committed to their organization, regardless of geographical location, operation, and fleet composition.”
