XLCS Partners, Inc., a leading middle market investment bank, is pleased to announce it served as exclusive advisor to TAG Aero in a merger with Unique Airmotive Services, facilitated by Mill Hill Capital.
UAS Holdings Company, LLC has been formed as the parent company and migrates both facilities under one brand, TAG Aero. The combined companies will bring together a leading APU repair station with capabilities reaching 20,000 aircrafts worldwide.

Unique Airmotive Services, located in Lake Wylie, South Carolina, has specialized in the repair and overhaul of APUs since 2011 and has in-house capabilities for the GTCP331-200ER, GTCP331-250H, GTCP36-150 Series, GTCP85 Series, and the APS2000.
Based in Naples, Florida, Mill Hill Capital is a private investment firm focused on acquisitions, recapitalizations, and founder liquidity events for middle market companies. Mill Hill’s team spans fifty years of investing and operational experience in aviation, aerospace, automotive, building products, medical products, and distribution.
