Carlyle Group Portfolio Company Paradigm Precision Completes Acquisition Of Eight Manufacturing Facilities From Unison Engine Components

Global alternative asset manager The Carlyle Group (NASDAQ: CG) today announced that Dynamic Precision Group, operating under the market-facing name Paradigm Precision, a DPG Company, has closed its acquisition of eight aerospace component fabrication and machining facilities located on three sites in the U.S., Canada and the UK from Unison Engine Components, a subsidiary of GE Aviation.

Originally announced in September 2013, the acquisition significantly expands Paradigm Precision’s capabilities for design and precision manufacturing of components used in commercial and military gas turbine engines used in aviation, marine, and industrial applications. The sites, which employ 825 people, are located in Manchester, CT; Burnley, Lancashire, UK; and Orillia, Ontario, Canada.

Greg Bennett, President and CEO of Paradigm Precision, said, “We are excited about the addition of these assets and the strong employee base and technical know-how they bring to Paradigm Precision. This acquisition will enable us to expand our capabilities and better serve our customers.”

Adam Palmer, Managing Director and Head of Carlyle’s Global Aerospace, Defense and Government Services team, said, “We are impressed with the diverse capabilities and product portfolio these businesses will add to Paradigm Precision. This transaction will substantially contribute to our goal of building a well-capitalized, highly capable supplier to the aero engine market.”

Paradigm Precision, based in Stuart, FL, is an independent manufacturer of complex components, specializing in the combustion, or “hot section,” of turbine engines used in commercial and military aviation as well as industrial gas turbine applications.

Acquisition financing was led by RBC Capital Markets and Deutsche Bank. Paradigm Precision and Carlyle were advised by Latham & Watkins and PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Dynamic Precision Group, the parent company of Paradigm Precision, is a portfolio company of Carlyle Partners V, Carlyle U.S. Equity Opportunity Fund, Carlyle Strategic Partners II, AeroEquity Partners and other co-investors.
