Continental Motors Group’s MRO subsidiary, Mattituck Services, Inc. (MSI) will add avionics and aircraft interior maintenance, repair and overhaul capabilities through an agreement to purchase Southern Avionics and Communications, which is located in Mobile, Alabama.
Southern Avionics has been a regional leader in avionics sales, installation and service since 1981 and employs 14 full time people at the Brookley Aeroplex located at the Mobile Downtown Airport (KBFM). Through the years, Southern Avionics has serviced aircraft ranging from very small personal aircraft up to large corporate jets. Its team has experience in maintaining, repairing and upgrading all major avionics products, both analog and digital. The company represents most major avionics manufacturers worldwide through distribution or representative agreements.
MSI, located in Fairhope, Alabama, has been a primary source for general aviation service since 1996 and employs 20 full time people. Mattituck offers a variety of aviation services including overhaul/repair for Continental and Lycoming engines, cylinder overhaul, fuel sales, parts sales, and major aircraft repairs.
The acquisition represents a strategic opportunity for the Continental Motors Group to expand its MRO offerings through the complimentary combination of the existing MSI and Southern Avionics businesses and to explore opportunities to expand its service presence at the rapidly growing Mobile Downtown Airport, company officials said.
Southern Avionics’ current facility is strategically located adjacent to the Airbus Final Assembly Line and offers CMG opportunities to extend its business in pilot training, fuel services, avionics services, wiring harnesses, and specialty aviation manufacturing. As Airbus’ final assembly line comes alive, it is expected that extensive growth in local business and flight operations will occur, company officials said.
The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2014.
