MTorres and Pacifica have signed an agreement for the acquisition of 100% of Pacifica Engineering shares; final closing of the transaction is pending on regulatory approvals.

Pacifica provides Tool Design, Engineering and Design/Build services to the Aerospace and Defense industries. It is an AS 9100 certified, ITAR registered and a Key Supplier to Boeing. Located in Bothell, Washington, US, it supports composite and mechanical tool design, structural, mechanical, electrical engineering & design, FEA/stress analysis, simulation, and design for manufacture (DFM) through an experienced and highly qualified staff of 55 people, mainly Engineers and Project Managers.

MTorres, a Spanish privately-owned company, has supplied automated equipment to the Aerospace Industry for over 20 years. The company says it is a market reference in the field of composite automatic lamination equipment, large routing and drilling with flexible tooling systems, other specialty equipment, as well as automated assembly jigs that support the manufacturing and assembly processes of the main programs around the world.

With manufacturing facilities in Spain and delegations in Germany and the US, MTorres has a workforce of 500 people and maintains business lines in the aeronautics, paper converting and wind energy sectors.

The combination of the two companies´ technologies and personnel is expected to enhance both the reach of product offering covering most of the aerospace manufacturing and assembly processes, and the services that MTorres and Pacifica are now able to provide to their clients, mainly in the US.
