The Acquisition of Quatro Composites

Founded in 1997, Quatro is a supplier of highly engineered advanced composite structures, components and assemblies to the aerospace industry as well as medical and industrial markets. They supply several of the leading aerospace platforms, including the Boeing 787, Gulfstream G650 and Insitu X300, and Quatro’s largest customers include The Boeing Company, Gulfstream, Insitu and United Technologies. They operate from a Manufacturing Center located in Orange City, Iowa.


On February 2, 2017, AIM Aerospace Acquired Quatro Composites. The combined capabilities of these two successful aerospace companies not only provides AIM Aerospace further customer, platform and geographic diversification but also extends it's capabilities into structural composites and thermoplastics, two of the fastest growing areas within composites.


The insertion of Quatro’s proven design, development and production capabilities, combined with AIM Aerospace's and Quatro’s existing engineering capabilities, will allow the combined company to enter new composite market segments and deliver a new generation of complex products to meet ever increasing customer demand.
