MB Aerospace group enters new phase under single brand and trading identity

MBAerospace - Friday, September 19, 2014

MB Aerospace, the international aerospace engineering group, is now operating under a single brand and trading identity following a period of acquisitions, expansion and key senior appointments.

The group’s business units in North America and Poland are now trading using the single MB Aerospace branding and identity after the acquisition of four global aero-engine component manufacturing businesses over the past three years.

The rebranding represents a key visible element of the group’s ‘one company value-stream’ approach to delivering consistent high-quality customer service and performance at each of the group’s manufacturing facilities.

Supporting the recent growth is a series of key senior appointments, the latest of which is Kevan Johnston, MB Aerospace’s vice president of business development. Kevan was previous owner and President of Norbert Industries, an aero-engine component manufacturing business which MB Aerospace acquired earlier in 2014.

Johnston will work alongside the MB Aerospace global business units to help the company achieve its future growth targets and provide the new, coordinated approach to key customers.

Craig Gallagher, chief executive officer of MB Aerospace, said: “We’ve been delighted with the capabilities, skills and trading performance of the businesses we have acquired recently and to be able to add Kevan to that offering will only further strengthen the group.

“The timing was right to bring the identity of our operations together clearly and drive towards further success together as one company: MB Aerospace.”
