Böllhoff acquires Gillis Aerospace

Böllhoff Group expands its portfolio in the aerospace sector from June 1, 2022, by acquiring Gillis Aerospace, a French manufacturer of fasteners for the aerospace industry.

The Böllhoff Group already acquired 40% of the shares in Gillis Aerospace in January 2020.

Gillis Aerospace specialises in the production of special fasteners and bolts as well as surface finishing. Due to the high level of automation, Gillis is especially characterised by high product quality and short lead times. Furthermore, Gillis has its own facilities for surface coating and can therefore offer the complete value chain from a single source with its comprehensive coating know-how. In addition to that, surface coating is also offered as a service to the market.

“With its comprehensive manufacturing portfolio, material expertise in lightweight materials and development know-how, Böllhoff wants to strengthen its position in the aerospace market as a leading supplier of innovative fastening solutions and support the aerospace industry as a competent partner in achieving weight and CO2 targets,” says Michael W. Böllhoff, Managing Partner of the Böllhoff Group.
