Merex to Distribute Parts from Ohio Manufacturer

Aerospace service provider Merex Group will begin distributing aircraft parts made by an Ohio manufacturer used on legacy military aircraft. The deal between Camarillo-based Merex and Jay-Em Aerospace of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, will give international exposure to Jay-Em’s products and services, said Merex President Andy Shams. “Adding Jay-Em to our family of products and services demonstrates our continued commitment to strengthen our supply chain offerings to our foreign military customer base,” Shams said in a prepared statement. Merex will distribute nose, wheel and brake assemblies for nine military aircraft, including the Lockheed C-130 Hercules transport plane, the F-16 Fighting Falcon, the F-4 Phantom II, and the Boeing B-52.
