Butler National Corp., a manufacturer and provider of support systems for “classic” commercial and military aircraft, has acquired Kings Avionics. Annual sales for Kings Avionics were reported at $2.1 million with a backlog of approximately $1 million, according to Butler National officials.
Clark Stewart, president and CEO, stated, “The acquisition of Kings Avionics provides Butler with a greater presence in the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) market to better support our special mission and classic aviation customers. Butler has been growing this strategically important business segment.”
Kings Avionics services aircraft ranging from single-engine piston airplanes to business jets. The acquisition expands the existing Butler National business to include a complete avionics capability offering comprehensive trouble-shooting, systems integration, avionics repairs, avionics installations, and instrument repair and overhaul.
Stewart commented, “Butler and our subsidiary Avcon have worked with Kings Avionics for a number of years to complete avionics installations, repairs and troubleshooting. Many of our customers require avionics upgrades when completing special mission and performance modifications. The Kings acquisition expands Butler/Avcon capabilities to provide these services to our customers as a dealer for most related manufacturers and the ability to offer on-site repair and overhaul of radios, radars, autopilots and instruments.”
