Air Comm Corporation Acquires Meggitt (Addison), Inc

Environmental Control Company Was Formerly Called Keith Products

Air Comm Corporation (ACC), which designs and certifies environmental control systems (ECS) for turbine helicopters, announced Thursday that it has acquired Meggitt (Addison), Inc., the former Keith Products, in a stock purchase. Keith Products is a leading supplier of ECS for the General Aviation markets. This strategic acquisition combines Keith Products’ fixed-wing market focus with ACC’s strength in the rotorcraft market. The combined enterprise will make ACC the leading ECS manufacturer in both of these markets. Their combined strengths in customer service, superior manufacturing, thermodynamic design, systems integration and entrepreneurial agility will create an unrivaled suite of product offerings and engineering capabilities for the aviation industry.

Keith Products has 40 air conditioner Supplemental Type Certificates for a wide variety of aircraft and is also a major supplier of type-certificated systems to original equipment manufacturers, including Beechcraft, Cessna, Eurocopter, Learjet, Piaggio, Pilatus, Korea Aerospace Industries and Sikorsky Aircraft. This product line, customer base, and technology is complementary to ACC’s 26-year focus designing and producing ECS and other thermal management solutions for the rotorcraft industry’s operators, service centers and OEMs. ACC’s major customers include Bell Helicopter, Sikorsky Aircraft, AgustaWestland, Eurocopter, Enstrom Helicopter, and the U.S. Army.
 
Both ACC and Keith Products have common roots going back to 1979 when ACC’s founder, Norm Steiner, worked for JB Systems, Inc. in Longmont, Colorado.  When JB systems was sold to Parker Hannifin and moved to Cleveland, Ohio in 1986, Mr. Steiner remained in Colorado and founded ACC.  After several transitions , the JB Systems Parker division was acquired by what is known today as Keith Products (Meggitt (Addison) Inc.).
