O2 Aero Acquisitions, the parent company of Aerox Aviation Oxygen Systems, said it has acquired Fluid Power Inc., a longtime manufacturer of aviation oxygen systems and related components for military use.

Aerox said the addition broadens its line of aviation oxygen systems while expanding its global customer base.

“Our acquisition of Fluid Power will create a balanced military and civil aviation product portfolio and will provide greater manufacturing capacity and engineering expertise,” said Scott Ashton, O2 Aero managing director and Aerox president. “Fluid Power has a 75-year legacy of servicing the aviation industry, providing sophisticated oxygen equipment as far back as the Korean War, and today provides many oxygen components for military applications.”

Aerox said the two companies’ product lines are complementary and will allow them to serve more segments of the aviation oxygen market. Under terms of the acquisition, Fluid Power will continue to operate as an independent company as part of the O2 Aero Acquisitions portfolio. The company will be rebranded as Aerox Fluid Power.

The acquisition of Fluid Power, which closed on August 31, marked the third such transaction for O2 Aero Acquisitions after the purchase of Aerox Aviation Oxygen Systems in 2020 and Sky-Ox Aviation Oxygen in 2022.
