XLCS Partners, Inc., a leading middle market investment bank, is pleased to announce it served as exclusive advisor to Unique Airmotive Services (UAS) in its sale to Mill Hill Capital.
Founded in 2011 and headquartered in Clover, South Carolina, UAS is a market leading maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) solutions provider focused on auxiliary power units (APUs) and the sale of related accessories to the global aviation industry.

The team at XLCS Partners was instrumental in positioning the business for a successful outcome.”
UAS President, Roger Brochu, added, “XLCS delivered flawlessly on the sale process, earning the entire management team’s confidence and trust. We feel like we made new friends for years to come, while also achieving all of our goals for the business, including positioning UAS for strong future growth.”
