STS Component Solutions acquires Air-Pro Hose, a subsidiary of Aero Maintenance Group
STS Component Solutions, a division of STS Aviation Group, has acquired the assets and business relationships of Air-Pro Hose, formally of AeroMaintenence Group, which is an Air France/KLM company located in Medley, Florida. The newly acquired business is legally named STS Distribution Solutions Inc. and will be operating as STS Air-Pro. Air-Pro is a leading distributor for Titeflex Aerospace and is globally recognized as a frontrunner in the manufacturing and distribution of flexible, rigid and flex-rigid hose assemblies with aircraft, turbine engine and space applications. “Air-Pro is a widely recognized global leader in the distribution and manufacture of high quality aerospace hoses. This acquisition provides us an excellent opportunity to further strengthen our current OEM Distribution Product offering while adding manufacturing capability,” states Tom Covella, Group President of STS Component Solutions. “The Air-Pro name has been a well-known brand for more than 40 years and it is linked to high-end, upper-echelon hose distribution and production. I am excited to integrate and incorporate the STS business model into the organization and take this business to new heights.” All key members of Air-Pro Hoses’ current sales and production team will remain in place and will now be led by Luis Garcia, Site Director for STS Distribution Solutions. The Air-Pro production facility will stay at its current location in Medley, Florida, while the administration and back-office support for STS Air-Pro will be located in Palm City, Florida. The acquisition of the Air-Pro Hose business is consistent with STS Component Solutions’ strategic direction toward expanding its portfolio of niche-based products and services within the aviation and aeroderivative markets.
