Led by directors Pat McEvoy and Tom Gibbons, Dublin-based TEAM Accessories provides overhaul, testing and repair services for the aerospace and industrial sectors. Founded in 1995, TEAM Accessories was born out of necessity. “The founders experienced a shortage of high-quality repair companies supporting complex engine accessories and components and so the business opportunity was identified,” Pat explains.
In the following years, TEAM Accessories grew from 10 to 40 people – but growth wasn’t always easy, Pat explains. “For a small company close to Dublin Airport, it takes a lot to get your profile out there because you’re dealing with customers all over the world.”
Despite some difficult market conditions, TEAM Accessories’ reputation for quality service and innovation helped the company grow. In the following years, the business received a number of acquisition bids – but it wasn’t until Pat and Tom met with BGF that they felt the time was right to take the business to a new level.
