He added that AVISTA and its engineers will offer technical depth to Belcan’s Systems and Software Engineering Group and open greater opportunities in the Midwest. He also welcomed AVISTA President Steven Ungs and his team to Belcan.

Mr. Ungs reportedly said that being a part of Belcan will fuel their network expansion and offer wide range of services to their customers. He further stated that Belcan shares their commitment towards excellent customer service and looks forward to continuing the success that they already have been witnessing by being a part of this robust, thriving company.

As per the credible sources, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP was the financial advisor and Kirkland & Ellis LLP was posted as legal advisor at Belcan. Moreover, BakerHostetler was the legal advisor and Seabury Securities served as financial advisor to TransDigm Group.

According to trusted reports, other significant details regarding the deal have not been disclosed yet.
