Bloomfield Hills industrial products provider TriMas today announced it has acquired RSA Engineered Products in Simi Valley, Calif., a manufacturer of components for air management systems used in critical flight applications. RSA will join TriMas Aerospace.
TriMas announced its intention to acquire RSA in January. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.
TriMas serves the consumer products, aerospace, and industrial end markets, with approximately 3,500 dedicated employees in 11 countries. RSA designs, engineers, and manufactures highly engineered components, including air ducting products, connectors, and flexible joints, predominantly used in aerospace and defense engine bleed air, anti-icing, and environmental control system applications.
“This acquisition demonstrates our ongoing commitment to grow our aerospace business and enhance the breadth of TriMas Aerospace’s product offerings,” says John Schaefer, president of TriMas Aerospace. “RSA also enhances our position in the defense and business jet markets, as well as increases our participation in the aftermarket.”
Thomas Amato, president and CEO of TriMas, says, “This acquisition is a meaningful step toward building out our TriMas aerospace platform. We look forward to all of the contributions RSA will make to TriMas.”
