Cory Mims, Managing Director of ICV Partners, said, "UTP supplies parts and replacements for one of the most successful engines in aviation history and the company is virtually in a class of its own in terms of its in-stock parts that are readily available. Led by a strong and experienced management team with terrific industry contacts, we see continued growth by leveraging the expertise of the management team and skilled sales personnel to expand to other engine platforms and build its position as a significant supplier to its global customers."
Joel Plake, Chief Executive Officer of UTP, said, "The aftermarket we serve continues to grow as the existing installed base of PT6A and PW100 engine platforms age and come due for maintenance and replacement. With the support of our new partners at ICV, UTP will further develop our industry leading position as we identify new opportunities to support our existing customers as well as identify new opportunities in the aviation aftermarket."
Mr. Mims added, "The acquisition of UTP fits ICVs strategy of partnering with existing management to buy market leading businesses in the middle market and we continue to evaluate a robust pipeline of attractive opportunities in which to invest."
