EDAC Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: EDAC), a diversified designer, manufacturer and servicer of precision components for aerospace and industrial applications, announced today that it has acquired EBTEC Corporation, a provider of advanced precision manufacturing processes and fabrication solutions to leading aerospace, power generation, industrial, semiconductor and medical customers.  Privately-owned EBTEC, which is headquartered in Agawam, Mass., had sales of $12.6 million in 2011.

The purchase price was approximately $11 million, of which $1.65 million has been paid in EDAC stock, with the balance funded by financing through TD Bank N.A.

EBTEC Corporation, which was founded in 1963, pioneered the development of non-contact, high energy beam (HB) technologies with the Apollo Space Program, proving at the time that EB welding could meet the demands that space travel would place on engineered products.  Today, in addition to electron beam welding, EBTEC's precision high energy beam processes include laser welding, laser cutting, laser drilling, EDM, vacuum heat treating, and abrasive waterjet cutting, while they also offer comprehensive precision fabrication solutions.  EBTEC has an extensive array of equipment, coupled with substantial engineering, metallurgy, quality assurance, program management, and in-house finishing capabilities. EBTEC is a certified supplier to major aerospace and industrial OEMs.

Dominick A. Pagano, President and Chief Executive Officer of EDAC Technologies, commented, "This acquisition represents an important step forward in our growth strategy. EBTEC gives us highly complementary and advanced capabilities that are required for the manufacture of our precision parts, many of which we formerly outsourced to EBTEC.  EBTEC also fabricates finished components, which immediately expands our product line with additional parts for aircraft engines and ground-based turbines, markets we currently serve.  In addition, EBTEC makes components and products used by manufacturers of semiconductors and medical devices, which opens up new markets to EDAC.  This acquisition also efficiently expands our manufacturing footprint as EBTEC's two facilities in Massachusetts are close to our own operations.

"We are acquiring a very well run and profitable company.  We have the highest regard for the EBTEC team and welcome each of them to EDAC.  In addition to their engineering capabilities and design know-how, they share with the team at EDAC a deep and proven commitment to innovation and exacting execution, making both companies an ideal fit with each other."
