Carlyle and Veritas did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Founded in 1950, Chromalloy manufactures and provides maintenance to engine turbines and other similar machinery used in the aviation, energy and defense industries. Chromalloy was acquired by Sun Chemical in 1986 and the merged company was rebranded as Sequa Corporation.

Chromalloy will be Veritas Capital’s latest acquisition in the aerospace and defense sector. In 2015, Veritas acquired aircraft servicing firm StandardAero Aviation for about $2bn and sold it to Carlyle for more than $5bn in 2018. Veritas sold engineering firm Alion Science and Technology to Huntington Ingalls Industries for $1.65bn in cash in 2021.

New York-based Veritas has more than $40bn in assets under management spread across technology, engineering services, and aerospace and defense.
