Hartzell Engine Tech Acquires Kelly Aero

Magneto Specialist Becomes Latest Electrifying Acquisition

Hartzell Engine Tech has acquired the assets of Kelly Aero LLC, and will rebrand the firm's assets into PowerUp Ignition Systems in 'early 2024'.

Kelly Aero, until 2021 Kelly Aerospace Energy Systems, is a manufacturer devoted to aftermarket aircraft magnetos, replacement parts, and ignition harnesses for general aviation applications, and their integration into the Hartzell fold will see them join the likes of Janitrol Aero, Fuelcraft, Plane-Power, Sky-Tec, and AeroForce Turbocharger Systems. The new PowerUp Ignition Systems production line will be folded into Hartzell Engine Tech's existing facilities in Montgomery, Alabama, adding about 40 employees to the family there.

The old Kelly Aero facility will be used to expand the capacity of the Hartzell machine shop, with customer service work on magnetos being performed at a sister company, Quality Aircraft Accessories.
