THE SHIFT


With PAC in the picture, it seems the an- swer to that question was a no-brainer. On its own, PAC had a legacy of quality work- manship and getting the job done. With a 50,000-plus square foot facility and 42 sea- soned and talented technicians, PAC had a lot to offer Metro. Location aside, having over 1,200 completions delivered to over 50 countries was icing on the cake and made PAC even more desirable to Metro. It’s rare in business acquisitions for two companies, seemingly divergent in model and customer base, to have more common interests than competitive ones. You know it is a good fit when you look at the brochure and both companies’ names are at the top complementing one another. As I type this, I am reading the brochure that says, “Paradigm Aerospace Corporation, a Metro Aviation Company.” Yes, two very mature companies in the helicopter mainte- nance business have joined forces to shift the paradigm in the eastern half of the United States.
