Arlington Capital Partners' portfolio company Radius Aerospace announces the acquisition of Doncasters's Aerospace forming and fabricating business in Sheffield and Shrewsbury
Tuesday, 19 November 2019

Radius Aerospace, Inc., a portfolio company of Arlington Capital Partners, today announced the acquisition of Doncasters Group Limited's Aerospace Forming and Fabricating Business in Sheffield and Shrewsbury, located in the United Kingdom. The purchased entity has been renamed Radius Aerospace UK Ltd, but will also trade under its historical Bramah and Shrewsbury names.

Radius Europe is a provider of complex forming and fabrication components to the aerospace and defense industry, with a primary focus on engines. Radius Europe operates from two facilities located in Sheffield and Shrewsbury, UK. The existing management team led by Kevan Donohoe will run Radius Europe.

Peter Manos, a Managing Partner at Arlington Capital, said, "We are very excited about this highly complementary acquisition which will create one of the largest and most vertically integrated independent aerospace forming companies in the industry. Radius now has an international presence serving a truly global customer base across a diversified set of end-markets. Radius has historically focused on mission-critical structural components on aerospace and defense programs; with this acquisition, Radius is now additionally well-positioned on growing next-generation engine programs like the GTF, LEAP and F-135."

Tony Johnson, CEO of Radius, said, "We look forward to adding Radius Europe's broad and deep capability suite to the broader Radius platform. Kevan and the entire Radius Europe team are best-in-class operators and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to collaborate together. We look forward to working with the Radius Europe team to further invest in and grow the business and service our customers."

Kevan Donohoe, Executive Vice President of Radius Europe, said, "We are excited to partner with veteran aerospace leaders like Tony and Arlington Capital for the next stage of our Company's growth. The independent aerospace forming and fabrications pure play and the commitment of capital to the business will allow us to better serve our customers."

Bilal Noor, a Vice President at Arlington Capital said, "This acquisition provides a strong fit with Radius and will generate several key synergies from knowledge transfer and cross-selling opportunities. Radius Europe is a long-tenured supplier to many of Europe's most important aerospace customers; the acquisition will give the broader Radius business access to these customers. The combined business is poised to continue its rapid growth trajectory and continue to win attractive work packages."
