TECT's roots reach back to 1895 and the formation of the Utica Drop Forge and Tool Company, Inc. UCA Holdings Inc., the parent company of TECT, acquired the Utica Corporation in April 1995. Then, in August 2001, TECT was formed with the acquisition of Turbine Engine Components Textron, Inc., which then became known as TECT Power. In 2004, TECT expanded its range of products and markets with the acquisitions of Tru-Circle Aerospace and Neuvant Inc. to form the TECT Aerospace business unit. In 2005, TECT Aerospace grew with the acquisition of BAE Systems Precision Aerostructures Inc. in Wellington, Kan. These days, TECT has 14 manufacturing facilities in seven states producing an array of aerospace and turbine components.
