Radius Europe will provide “complex forming and fabrication components” for companies in the aerospace and defense sectors. The company primarily focuses on engines. Kevan Donohoe will head the leadership team for Radius Europe.

 “We look forward to adding Radius Europe’s broad and deep capability suite to the broader Radius platform. Kevan and the entire Radius Europe team are best-in-class operators and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to collaborate together,” Tony Johnson, CEO of Radius, said in a statement. “We look forward to working with the Radius Europe team to further invest in and grow the business and service our customers.”

Radius is headquartered in Hot Springs and has locations in Phoenix, Ariz., San Diego, Calif., Shelbyville, Ind., and Fort Worth, Texas. According to the company website, Radius has more than 1,000 employees and approximately one million square feet of manufacturing space across its locations.
