Whitmor/Wirenetics, a long-time distributor of magnet wire based in Valencia, California, is now part of the FDH Aero organization through its acquisition of BJG Electronics Group. A global provider of supply chain solutions for the aerospace and defense industry, FDH Aero acquired BJG in April and since has organized the holding into its new Electronic Products Group division.
A provider of wire products including magnet wire and Litz wire for more than 50 years, including magnet wire products from companies such as Essex Furukawa, Whitmore/Wirenetics was acquired in 2019 by BJG which now has been acquired by FDH Aero as of April 2023.
FDH Aero announced on June 15 that it has established the FDH Aero Electronic Products Group (“FDH EPG”) division through the combination and integration of three of its existing brands to provide electrical and electronic components for the aerospace, defense and space markets.
“By combining the strengths of our Electro Enterprises, BTC Electronics and BJG Electronics brands into one unified Electronic Products Group, we are further enhancing our ability to serve the most complex needs of our customers,” FDH Aero President and Chief Executive Officer Scott Tucker said. Mitch Enright, formerly president of Electro Enterprises, is now president of the FDH Aero EPG division.
“The establishment of the FDH Aero Electronic Products Group is a clear indication to our suppliers and customers that FDH Aero will continue growing its focus on service, quality, and supply chain excellence,” Enright said. “This will allow us to better serve our customers and supplier partners while continuing to act as an integral piece of the complete FDH Aero solution.” FDH Aero has also named former BJG executive Ian Locke as FDH EPG Executive Vice President of Sales and Nathan Little, formerly of Electro Enterprises, was named FDH EPG Vice President of Sales.
Headquartered in Commerce, California, FDH Aero has operations across North America, Europe and Asia with locations in 14 countries, more than 1,000 employees and over 650,000 square feet of inventory space. See www.fdhaero.com.
