Wencor is a market leader in each of its business segments, being the #1 non-engine component PMA provider, a top 3 player in its niche repair categories, and a top 3 player in its niche distribution product categories. As a result, Wencor has very strong relationships with its airline and MRO customers, with annual customer retention rates of 98%.Warburg Pincus first invested in Wencor Group in 2014.
