Tronair has announced the acquisition of Quality Products, the holding company of Columbus Jack/Regent and GSE Spares.

Ohio-based Columbus Jack is the largest supplier of hydraulic jacks to the US Defense Department; it also services commercial, business and civilian aircraft. The company's products are to be found in airports and government installations around the world. GSE Spares, based in Waxahachie, Texas, provides a complete line of ground support equipment, spare parts, adapters and accessories for the US military forces.

Speaking on the acquisition, Harley Kaplan, President and CEO of Tronair, said that he saw the additions of Columbus Jack and GSE Spares as a natural and positive extension to Tronair’s strategic plan. "Both companies have outstanding product lines and reputations as aircraft GSE manufacturers, and when added with the product breadth of Tronair, we will be able to further penetrate strategic markets and fulfill our customers’ needs.”

Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
