FDH Aero, a portfolio company of Audax Private Equity, has acquired BJG Electronics

BJG Electronics

Based in Ronkonkoma, New York, and founded in 1979, BJG Electronics serves both original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and aftermarket-services providers in the aerospace and defense industry. The acquisition of BJG broadens and deepens FDH Aero’s role in the aviation and defense supply chains and will provide both FDH Aero and BJG customers access to a more expansive range of products and services.

The Deal

Following the acquisition of BJG, FDH Aero will establish FDH Aero Electronic Products Group (FDH EPG), a division that will focus on supply chain excellence in the electrical and electronic components product category, alongside its industry-leading hardware, chemical and consumable franchises for the aerospace, defense and space end markets. Mitch Enright, current President of Electro Enterprises, Inc., which was acquired by FDH in July 2022, will be named President of FDH EPG. As a unified division, FDH EPG will offer an industry-leading range of interconnect and electromechanical products and services.
