Aerospace, Defense & Government Services

What we do

Bain’s experience in the aerospace and defense industries covers all major geographies and business issues. We have worked with the majority of the world’s largest aerospace companies and defense contractors; we also work with a wide range of tier I and II suppliers. Coordination with Bain’s Airlines practice provides us with a unique perspective on commercial aerospace and customers.

Across all segments, A&D companies are facing structural change including industry consolidation and the development of new business models. We understand the key strategic issues facing the industry, and have developed expertise across every major sector, including:

  • Commercial aerospace (including commercial, regional and business aircraft OEMs and suppliers)
  • Defense (including leading defense contractors and tier I/II suppliers)
  • Space (including rockets, launch, sub-systems and communication providers)
  • Government IT and technical services (ranging from mission engineering to BPO to MRO and training)

We have helped our clients focus their corporate portfolio of businesses, position businesses for growth, adjust their cost structure and modify supply chains, execute successful M&A strategies and redesign their organizations to compete in a market where business boundary lines are constantly shifting.
