ANAHEIM, CA, January 31, 2024—Arlington Capital Partners (“Arlington”), a Washington, D.C.-area private investment firm specializing in government regulated industries, today announced the launch of Verus Aerospace (“Verus” or the “Company”), a newly formed brand emerging as one of the industry’s largest pure play structures platforms focused on next-generation programs for the aerospace, defense and space industries.

Verus Aerospace operates three integrated centers of excellence in California, Kansas and Washington, strategically located near major customers, which provides the ability to collaborate closely with customers from project inception.

The creation of Verus as a standalone platform investment within Arlington’s portfolio will enable the Company to focus exclusively on aerostructures and redefine the standards of excellence and innovation in the field across commercial, defense and space applications. As the aerospace, defense and space landscapes evolve, Verus will emerge as a dynamic player, ready to shape the future of aerostructures with unwavering dedication and expertise.
