TransDigm Announces the Acquisition of Fluid Regulators Corporation From Esterline Technologies

CLEVELAND, Jan. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- TransDigm Inc. announced today that it has completed the acquisition of Fluid Regulators Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Esterline Technologies Corporation. Fluid Regulators has been an innovative supplier of proprietary aerospace products for 50 years and is located in Painesville, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland.

Fluid Regulators designs and manufactures highly engineered flight control and pressure valves used in hydraulic, fuel, lubrication and related applications. The products are used on a wide range of commercial and military aircraft including most Boeing and Airbus platforms, Canadair and Embraer regional jets, many business jets, and a broad range of military aircraft including F-16, C-5, AH64 Apache, C-17 and the F-18. Recent new awards have included a range of Airbus A-380 and Joint Strike Fighter applications. The company's proprietary products, market position, and aftermarket content fit well with TransDigm's overall business and strategic direction.

W. Nicholas Howley, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of TransDigm, stated, "Fluid Regulators Corporation is a good compliment to our Cleveland- based AeroControlex pump and valve products. The business will become an important part of our AeroControlex division. We look forward to building on the strong reputation, new applications, and broad existing base of the Fluid Regulators products."

TransDigm, with annual sales of over $300 million, is located in Cleveland, Ohio.
