Hartzell Engine Technologies Announces It Has Acquired the Assets of T&W Electrical Services and Aerospace Components

December 4, 2019

T&W Electrical Services and Aerospace Components is a manufacturer of FAA approved PMA starter and alternator products for general aviation aircraft piston engines, as well as a leading aftermarket overhauler of legacy starters and alternators.

Montgomery, AL (December 04, 2019) — Representatives of Hartzell Engine Technologies (HET) announced today that the company has completed the acquisition of T&W Electrical Services and Aerospace Components.

Based in Lakeview, Michigan, T&W Electrical Services and Aerospace Components is a leading manufacturer of FAA approved Parts Manufacturer Approval (PMA) parts for general aviation piston aircraft engine starters and alternators. The company is also one of general aviation’s largest overhaulers of starters and alternators.

“For over 20-years the team at T&W has been providing general aviation aircraft owner/operators with, not only, new PMA parts, but exceptionally high-quality overhaul services for starters and alternators,” stated Keith Bagley, President, Hartzell Engine Technologies. “T&W also manufacturers the popular FAA PMA’d PowerLite starter for 12- and 24-volt Continental engines, which we are excited to soon be adding to our Sky-Tec starter family.”

“Whether it’s a new PowerLite starter, PMA starter, and alternator parts, overhaul services or aftermarket support, T&W excels in quality, craftsmanship, and commitment to customer satisfaction in every aspect of their business,” he said. “We want each of their current customers to know that nothing is going to change. Unparalleled quality and customer support are two of the most synergistic core elements of our two companies.”

Bagley stated that an example of the exceptional level of quality is T&W’s use of a dual-plane, dynamic balancing machine as part of their process with all rotating field components.

“T&W utilizes tools and equipment usually not found in the typical accessory overhaul shop. They continually go that extra step to ensure that their overhauls deliver unparalleled performance and reliability,” he said. “Very few aftermarket overhaulers have made that kind of investment and commitment to quality. It truly sets T&W apart.”
