Gama Acquires Ronaldson Airmotive
Gama Group has acquired Oxford, England-based Ronaldson Airmotive. The engine and components overhaul facility strengthens the range of aerospace engineering capabilities available through the Gama engineering group of businesses. Ronaldson joins both Gama Engineering and Gama Support Services in offering a range of engineering products and services for fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft operators. The company offers comprehensive design, certification, maintenance, repair, overhaul and modification services at its Fairoaks and Farnborough facilities.
Andy Patsalides, director of marketing for Gama, told AIN the company has no short-term plan to rebrand the MRO. “While we have no immediate intention to rebrand Ronaldson Airmotive, the marketing strategy is to integrate it quickly into the Gama Group of companies and brand it as Ronaldson Airmotive–a Gama Group Company.”
Founded in 2007, Ronaldson has EASA Part 145 approval covering Lycoming and Teledyne Continental engine overhaul and repairs; fuel, ignition and governing component overhaul and repairs; and in-house specialized NDT services. The MRO has some 10,000 sq ft of space and 11 employees at its two locations.
