PCS Aerosystems on Wednesday said it has acquired Pacific Contours Corp., a manufacturer and supplier of specialized components and assemblies used in military aircraft and space vehicles, a deal that expands its footprint in California and adds new capabilities and customers.
Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Pacific Contours, which is based in Anaheim, manufactures components and assemblies used on the F-35, F-22, F/A-18 and F-16 fighters, CH-47 and AH-64 helicopters, the V-22 tiltrotor, the P-8A maritime patrol aircraft, the KC-46 aerial refueling tanker, and the C-17 and C-130 cargo aircraft. The company also makes product for Atlas rockets.
Pacific Contours has capabilities in high-speed machining of structures such as bulkheads and frames, components that support complex assemblies, machining of titanium and hard metals, assemblies, and quality control.
Pacific Contours was founded in 1997 and owned by the Rapacz family, who sold it to PCX, which is based in Connecticut. The leadership team of Pacific Contours will remain with the company.
“Sharing resources with PCX’s existing Santa Ana team will create growth opportunities for our customers, employees and suppliers,” Christopher Morgan, general manager of Pacific Contours, said in a statement.
PCX Aerosystems is a manufacturer and supplier of mechanical systems for aerospace companies.
