Air Partner acquires Kenyon International Emergency Services for $11.7m

British aviation services group Air Partner has acquired Kenyon International Emergency Services, an emergency planning and incident response company, in a deal worth up to $11.7 million.

Kenyon International Emergency Services, which is based in Houston, Texas, is being acquired from PT Lobos LLC, which in turn is owned by Robert A. Jensen, Sean Gates, and Brandon D. Jones.

Air Partner will pay $10.3 million on completion of the deal, followed by $1.4 million in deferred payments either in cash or shares after 12 months.

Established in 1906, Kenyon International Emergency Services is engaged in providing specialized support to local and national governments, emergency services, regulatory bodies, blue-chip corporates, and others.

The company’s main operational facility is located in Bracknell, UK. It also has a further operational base in Sydney, Australia, an office in Beirut, Lebanon and representation in Santo Domingo in Dominican Republic.

Robert A. Jensen — Chairman of Kenyon International Emergency Services said: “Kenyon was the world’s first emergency response provider and now, with experience built up over 115 years, it is a leader in its field, with best practice developed through multiple major deployments.

“Kenyon regards the sharing of knowledge as a priority and much of what is regarded as best practice in industry and government has arisen from this. By joining with the Air Partner Group, together we are again expanding the definition of emergency planning and incident response to meet the evolving needs of business and governments in a fast-changing global environment.

Air Partner said that Kenyon International Emergency Services is largely complementary to its existing safety and security and charter businesses. Besides, the acquisition will increase its consulting and training activities, said the British aviation services group.

Mark Briffa — CEO of Air Partner said: “Air Partner and Kenyon are two highly complementary businesses, providing significant opportunities to leverage each other’s skills, heritage and impressive customer bases.

“The acquisition will immediately enhance our existing consulting, training and emergency response activities and adds new post-emergency capabilities in incident management, as well as extending our sector reach and global offering. The experience, products and services we are able to harness across the Air Partner Group with the addition of Kenyon is unmatched.”
