Safran’s Acquisition of Collins Actuators and Pilot Controls Unit


Mattos Filho, Veiga Filho, Marrey Jr. e Quiroga and Machado Meyer advised on the Antitrust clearance in Brazil

Safran has signed an agreement to acquire Rockwell Collins’s actuators, pilot controls, and special products business.

The Transaction secured regulatory approval in Brazil.

This move will expand the electrical actuation and flight control business lines of Safran Electronic & Defense and Zodiac Aerospace, which Safran purchased earlier this year.

The Collins division produces cockpit pedestal systems, pilot control systems, and throttle control modules, among others. It also provides a full range of fly-by-wire cockpit control devices, from modular controls to fully integrated pilot-control systems. Further, Collins is also a specialist for horizontal stabilizer trim actuators for business jets, airliners, and military aircraft.
