Cleveland-based TransDigm has acquired the electromechanical actuation division of GE Aviation in a $150 million cash transaction.
The TransDigm-owned unit will operate as Whippany Actuation Systems, reflecting its location in Whippany, New Jersey.
The unit's annual revenues are estimated to be about $80 million.
Whippany supplies motion control products, which include control electronics, motors and high power mechanical transmissions and actuators. Customers include both civil and military aircraft, TransDigm says.
The deal comes some six months after GE Aviation divested a division that manufactures actuation systems for hydraulic thrust reversers on jet engines. Motion control systems specialist Woodward acquired the Duarte, California-based unit in a cash deal for $200 million.
