TriMas Corporation Announces Bolt-On Acquisition In Aerospace And Defense Segment

Stocks in this article: TRS

TriMas Corporation (NASDAQ: TRS) – a diversified global manufacturer of engineered and applied products – announced today that it has acquired Martinic Engineering, Inc. for approximately $19 million. The purchase price is subject to a net working capital adjustment as of the closing date. The transaction closed on January 28, 2013, at which time Martinic Engineering became part of TriMas Corporation’s Aerospace and Defense segment.

Founded by Tonci Martinic in 1978, Martinic Engineering, located in Stanton, California, manufactures highly-engineered, precision machined, complex parts for commercial and military aerospace applications, including auxiliary power units, as well as electrical, hydraulic and pneumatic systems. Martinic Engineering generated approximately $13 million in revenue for the 12 months ended December 31, 2012. Mr. Martinic will remain with the company as its general manager.

“This is the type of business we look for when adding to our portfolio – a business with products that are highly-engineered, and difficult to manufacture,” said Dave Wathen, president and chief executive officer of TriMas Corporation. “This acquisition complements our growth strategies for our Aerospace and Defense segment by providing additional OE and aftermarket opportunities.”

“Martinic Engineering will enhance our customer base in the aerospace and defense industry,” said David Adler, president of Monogram Aerospace Fasteners. “This acquisition gives us the opportunity to offer a broader product portfolio and provides a platform for further growth with current and new customers.”
