Arlington Capital acquires Cadence Aerospace

Arlington Capital Partners (“Arlington”), a Washington, DC-area private equity firm, has acquired Cadence Aerospace (“Cadence” or the “Company”). Based in Anaheim, CA, Cadence offers a product portfolio of highly complex aerospace components and assemblies with unique expertise in difficult-to-machine geometries, hard metal alloys, and very large aerostructures. The Company has a broad footprint across six centers of excellence throughout the US and Mexico that allows it to support the mission-critical needs of its blue-chip customer base.

Peter Manos, a Managing Partner at Arlington Capital, said “Cadence’s robust set of manufacturing capabilities, customer relationships and favorable exposure to key growth platforms collectively present a compelling investment opportunity. Cadence stands to benefit from supply chain consolidation given its unique scale and capabilities as customers look to larger, more established industry players to drive manufacturing efficiencies, quality, and design innovation.”

Ron Case, CEO of Cadence, said, “We are excited to partner with Arlington, a private equity firm with a successful history in the aerospace sector, to capitalize on the multitude of opportunities available to the Company in our current end markets. Through a growth strategy that includes both organic capital investments and acquisitions, we are focused on creating value for our customers and employees alike.”

Bilal Noor, a Vice President at Arlington Capital said, “Cadence’s leadership in the manufacturing and assembly of mission critical, complex, and differentiated aerospace components provides the Company with enduring competitive advantages. We look forward to supporting the Company as it continues to expand its already robust capability set, footprint, and product offering.”
