Avantus manufactures a wide range of aerospace components such as fasteners, brackets, shims, detail assemblies and clips – as well as a broad array of composite and metal bond structures.
The company delivers over 10 million parts annually through long-term relationships with major OEMs, Tier 1 suppliers and distributors in the US, Europe and Asia Pacific.
The Inflexion difference
Inflexion’s international reach was attractive to Shimtech management, who were looking for a partner to help them grow sales and new customer penetration in an expanding global market. Inflexion was able to demonstrate a strong understanding of the sector dynamics owing to its investment in CTC Aviation. Since the buyout, the company has developed new production technologies in composite manufacturing, launched a greenfield operation in Mexico, has continued to take market share through new customer acquisition by deeper penetration in both commercial and military contracts, and has driven significant production efficiencies throughout its manufacturing base. The company has also grown through acquisitions including the acquisition of Fastener Technology Corporation which expanded the product range and increased the Group’s military exposure.
