“Together with Blue Sea Capital, we’ve built Sunvair Aerospace Group into an industry leading, multi-location aerospace MRO from its roots as a small landing gear specialist. Blue Sea Capital’s expertise investing in aerospace companies and specific understanding of our business have enabled them to contribute to our growth beyond what is typical of private equity generalists.”
