FELLFAB® announces the Strategic Acquisition of the assets of Custom Products, Inc. & CPI-Aero Services, LLC
Hamilton, Ontario– September 1st, 2015 – FELLFAB® announced today it has completed the transaction for the acquisition of the assets of aerospace interior products company, Customs Products, Inc. (CPI) as well as its interior refurbishing services, CPI-Aero Services, LLC.
The acquisition will allow FELLFAB® a North American leader in the fabrication of interior soft good products for the aerospace, rail, and industrial markets, to expand its capabilities and services and to expand its customer base. Custom Products, Inc. will continue to operate out of its Mooresville, NC location.
FELLFAB® will now have the capability, through its affiliated companies, to perform FAA testing and certification, as well as offering a host of interior foam solutions to its customers.
The CPI-Aero Services, LLC acquisition is a natural fit and will also enable the combined entity to serve larger volumes of inventory management and refurbishment services.
Merging these capabilities with FELLFAB®‘s core competencies in manufacturing and design excellence will open new market opportunities and is a truly sound strategy for both companies. “Custom Products, Inc. is a respected name in our industry and we are proud to be affiliated.” Said FELLFAB® President, Eric Taylor. The high quality products and services previously manufactured and rendered by CPI, will still be readily available after this acquisition under the same high standards of manufacture and service previously performed by CPI, but now by the expanded FELLFAB® family of companies.
“The next few months will pave the path to a new beginning for former CPI employees. United by a common business culture, the transaction offers a very bright future for all concerned.” Said Dave McKnight, CPI President.
The acquisition makes FELLFAB® the North American forerunner in the Aviation Softs goods market.
