Dunlop Standard Aerospace
The company was acquired by Doughty Hanson in October 1998.
Dunlop Standard Aerospace was the largest independent engine repair and overhaul company in the world for commercial, regional, military and business aircraft engines. It also supplied wheel and braking systems, engine components and rubber seals for a variety of aircraft.
It was sold in August 2004 for US$1.45 billion to a consortium of Meggitt of the UK and The Carlyle Group. Meggitt retained the Dunlop Aerospace Design and Manufacturing division, while Carlyle took the Standard Aero division.
