Aerospace and defence

Steen Associates is recognised globally as a leading provider of M&A advisory services to businesses active in the commercial aerospace and defence markets. Indeed, in recent years Jason Steen has been consistently ranked by Merger Market as one of the top three aerospace and defence M&A practitioners in Europe by volume of deals transacted.

Our in-depth understanding of all aspects of this sector, namely manufacturing, services and technology, combined with our extensive contacts enables us to identify and initiate opportunities for clients seeking to expand or rationalise their operations.

Activity in this sector primarily centres around original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and companies in the multiple tiers of the supply chain. OEMs require their supply base to provide services on an international basis, and offer a systems strategy rather than a purely product-focused approach. We help suppliers adapt to these demands through mergers and acquisitions.

Transactions tend to involve either strategically important companies that have either bespoke products or processes and which are rich in IP or services that provide opportunities for consolidation and streamlining.

Our multi-lingual team of UK, US, German and French nationals have close relationships with an extensive network of companies in the leading global markets for this high value-added sector.

If you are looking to buy or sell a company within the aerospace and defence sector and would like to find out how Steen Associates can help you, please contact us for a confidential and no-commitment discussion.
