Penton Aviation Network acquires MRO Network

Penton said it has announced the acquisition of MRO Network, which will expand its position as the premier information services provider and event producer for the fast-growing aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) segment.

The acquisition of MRO Network, including the Airline Purchasing & Maintenance Europe (ap&m) Expo, expands Penton´s events business and enhances its data and marketing services businesses through the addition of more than 50,000 MRO professionals to Penton´s MRO Links digital directory platform.

The ap&m event focuses on second, third and fourth-tier aftermarket suppliers, providing the perfect complement to Aviation Week´s MRO Europe event, which engages tier one and two suppliers. In addition to the ap&m Expo, other MRO Network assets include a global conference series, the ATE&M Awards, and a portfolio of media and digital products.

Headquartered in New York, Penton is privately owned by MidOcean Partners and Wasserstein & Co., LP.
