Belcan, a portfolio company of AE Industrial Partners, has acquired technology and systems engineering consultancy Base2 Solutions for an undisclosed sum.

Safran sold Bellevue, Wash.-based Base2 as part of portfolio managements efforts the French aircraft components manufacturing company implemented last year, Belcan said Thursday.

Lance Kwasniewski, CEO of Belcan, said the deal expands the company's footprint in the aerospace sector and adds digital technology platforms to its portfolio.

Kirkland & Ellis and PwC respectively served as legal and financial advisers to Belcan on the transaction. Mesirow Financial was Safran's financial adviser while Evershed Sutherland acted as its legal adviser.

Base2 offers consulting services in the software development, security, systems engineering and DevOps areas.
