ERICKSON FINALIZES ACQUISITION OF EVERGREEN HELICOPTERS, INC.
Erickson Air-Crane has completed a previously announced deal to acquire Evergreen Helicopters, Inc. ("EHI") from Evergreen International Aviation, Inc.
EHI, based in McMinnville, Oregon, operates a fleet of 65 rotary- and fixed-wing aircraft for a variety of passenger transport and light, medium and heavy load-carrying missions, for both government and commercial customers.
Erickson CEO Udo Rieder said, "This transformative acquisition marks the beginning of a new chapter in the history of our company. We will see an immediate increase in scale, have a wider range of mission capabilities, do business with an expanded suite of customers, and reduce risk through a greatly enhanced level of diversification, including a truly global footprint."
