G.S. Precision, a Portfolio Company of AE Industrial Partners,
Acquires F.T. Gearing, a Leader in Highly Specialized Aerospace Gears

Brattleboro, VT, April 28, 2022 – G.S. Precision, Inc. (“GSP”), a leading manufacturer of complex, high-precision components and specialty hardware used primarily in aerospace engines and defense systems, announced today that it acquired F.T. Gearing Systems (“F.T. Gearing”), a provider of highly engineered gears to the aerospace and defense industries. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

GSP is a portfolio company of AE Industrial Partners (“AEI”), a U.S.-based private equity firm specializing in aerospace, defense & government services, space, power & utility services, and specialty industrial markets.

Founded in 1978 and headquartered in Aldershot, England, F.T. Gearing is a critical supplier within the aerospace supply chain, providing complex, tight-tolerance precision gear components used in next-generation aircraft engines, actuators, and fuel systems. F.T. Gearing has been family owned since its founding and current owners Graham Fitzgerald, CEO, and Nigel Fitzgerald, Managing Director, will continue with F.T. Gearing post-close.

“The acquisition of F.T. Gearing is truly transformational for GSP, providing us with new gear capabilities as well as an entry into F.T. Gearing’s blue-chip customers, furthering GSP’s position as a premier supplier within the global aerospace and defense ecosystem,” said Matt O’Connell, CEO of GSP. “F.T. Gearing is a perfect fit with GSP, both in terms of corporate culture and its complex gear manufacturing capabilities, and our customers will benefit from an expanded solutions offering. I look forward to working with Graham and Nigel and the entire F.T. Gearing team as we grow the business together.”

“While F.T. Gearing has been a successful family company for over 40 years, the support of GSP and AEI will allow us to capitalize on today’s exciting aerospace opportunities,” said Nigel Fitzgerald. “We’re excited to join the GSP team and are optimistic about the growth ahead.”
