The AWI technical data, tooling, and machine capabilities will become part of the current Kellstrom Defense (KDA) Engineered Products operating segment. The current AWI team and the equipment are being relocated to the nearby Kellstrom Defense Chatsworth, California facility and the business will retain the AWI brand identity in the market.

AWI has been a long-term special process provider and OEM approved source for welding services on a wide range of military aircraft and helicopter platforms including the E-2, F-15, F-16, C-130, B-52, P-3, SH-60, and has additional capabilities applicable to other aviation platforms.

KDA President of Engineered Products, Scott Wooden comments, “The addition of the highly skilled Aerospace Welding workforce coupled with the unique welding capabilities of the business bolster our ability to accelerate product deliveries to our global customers. Our further investment in AWI’s capabilities and continued OEM certification will continue to ensure that all internal and external customers receive the highest level of quality and customer service.”

KDA was represented by Christine Shin and Jacob Agi of the Los Angeles based law firm Russ August & Kabat to complete the purchase agreement for this exclusive transaction, which was originated by the KDA internal deal team. Financial terms of the transaction have not been disclosed.
