SSG Advises Sale of Brenner Aerostructures to The Atlas Group


SSG Capital Advisors acted as the exclusive investment banker to Brenner Aerostructures in its sale to an affiliate of The Atlas Group, a portfolio company of Graham Partners. The transaction closed on December 31, 2012.

Based in suburban Philadelphia, PA, Brenner is a manufacturer of aerospace components and sub-assemblies primarily serving the commercial aerospace industry. The company specializes in designing, assembling and manufacturing highly engineered parts and sub-assemblies primarily for the commercial aircraft industry and other related markets. Through flexible manufacturing, Brenner’s broad product spectrum of components spans the entire airplane from nose to tail.

Brenner is a privately held business and retained SSG to facilitate the exploration of its strategic alternatives, including the sale of the company.

After facilitating a wide marketing process comprised of both strategic and financial investors, Brenner was acquired by Atlas, a group of manufacturers of new and replacement OEM parts for corporate, regional, commercial and defense aircrafts. The transaction provides Brenner with strategic resources to support its growth initiatives and allows Brenner’s owner the opportunity to diversify his personal holdings while remaining a key part of its future.

Graham Partners is a private investment firm focused on investing in companies with proprietary technologies, advanced manufacturing know-how, innovative product development capabilities and strong growth potential.
