TransDigm Group Incorporated (NYSE:TDG) shares showed slight gains Wednesday, on word the Cleveland-based company has completed the acquisition of SEI Industries Ltd.

SEI Industries, headquartered in Delta, British Columbia, is a leading provider of highly engineered products for aerial firefighting and other liquid transportation solutions, such as remote refueling. Its innovative and world-renowned Bambi Bucket®, is a proprietary collapsible firefighting bucket used across the globe to combat forest fires, among other applications.

The Company is widely known in the industry for its highly engineered and specialized products, which fit well with our proprietary and aftermarket-focused value generation strategy. SEI's innovative products and excellent customer service at its global repair centers have created a strong portfolio of established, long-term customers. As with all TransDigm acquisitions, we expect the SEI acquisition to create equity value in-line with our long-term private equity-like return objectives."
