Exxelia joins Heico Corporation group

Exxelia is turning a page in its shareholder history and should join the American group HEICO Corporation via its subsidiary Electronic Technologies Group (ETG).

The transaction will be carried out with IK Partners, majority shareholder of Exxelia since 2015, and should take place before the end of the first quarter of 2023.


Laurans A. Mendelson, HEICO's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, along with Victor H. Mendelson, HEICO's Co-President and CEO of its Electronic Technologies Group, commented, "We are ecstatic that such a fine company, with its remarkable team members, management and products, will be part of HEICO, and we look forward to welcoming all of Exxelia's great people to the HEICO family. While furthering HEICO's strategy of expanding our already impressive range of mission-critical and Hi-Rel components for the most demanding applications, Exxelia also provides HEICO with added broad geographic and product diversity, including in the important European market."


Paul Maisonnier, CEO of Exxelia, commented, "We are excited to embark on a new stage of development with HEICO. We really appreciate the values of the Mendelson Family, which match perfectly those of Exxelia. Our goal to develop Exxelia into a world leader in Hi-Rel passive components and sub-systems for harsh environments, serving the aeronautic, defense, space and medical markets will be accelerated under the HEICO umbrella. Together we will strengthen our innovation and operational capabilities and accelerate our internationalisation strategy. We thank IK for their support over the past years, which has enabled us to establish a solid platform to support our ambitions for global growth."


Dan Soudry, Managing Partner at IK Partners and Advisor to the IK VII Fund, and Diki Korniloff, Partner at IK Partners, added: "As shareholders of Exxelia since 2015, we are very pleased to have been able to support its very talented management team through the various stages of transformation, structuring and growth of the Company, doubling its employee base to more than 2,100 people and leading to a strong increase in investment in R&D and in its manufacturing footprint. Notably, we believe that HEICO is an excellent home for Exxelia given that they share common values and we are very pleased HEICO is acquiring Exxelia. We'd like to take this opportunity to wish the team and HEICO all the very best for the future."

Retour sur notre présence au salon électronica 2022

  Pôle « Produits embarqués » ; rassemblant les composants pouvant être montés sur un satellite, un radar ou un avion, nous avons pu présenter deux innovations particulièrement adaptées aux défis de l’aviation du futur et des objectifs de décarbonation de l’aérien avec notre dernière innovation de condensateur film : MML™. Aux côtés des composants MML™, nous avons exposé les dernières innovations en matière de composants magnétiques, permettant de gagner jusqu’à 40% de poids et 20% de volume tout en dissipant plus de puissance, et dont certains ont été conçus pour des applications eVTOL, ainsi que les transformateurs multi-sorties CCM & Dual Active Bridge.   Pôle « Ferroviaire & Energie » ; nous avons exposé pour la première fois les condensateurs Alcon. Alcon est l’un des principaux concepteurs et fabricants indiens de condensateurs aluminium électrolytique et film, standards et sur-mesure, pour marchés de niche. Alcon fournit notamment de nombreux composants présents à bord des trains, des bornes de recharge électrique ou de systèmes de génération de puissance. Les condensateurs film et céramique d’Exxelia pour les systèmes de signalisation, ainsi que des transformateurs de courant et de mesure, et des résistances ont été aussi en démonstration.   Pôle médical ; les composants Exxelia Micropen & Exxelia Ohmcraft  ont été aussi présentés à Electronica pour la toute première fois avec une offre exceptionnelle pour le secteur médical. En effet, la technologie d’impression additive unique Exxelia Micropen est largement utilisée pour le matériel médical jetable tel que les tubes endotrachéaux ou les outils d’ablation chirurgicale, et les résistances haute tension  sont utilisées dans les équipements de laboratoire tels que les spectromètres de masse ou les thermocycleurs.
