    Banner's net income tripled in the fiscal year ended in March 1996, and nearly tripled again to $4.6 million over the following three quarters. The surge in profit reflected a rise in demand for new aircraft and the general resurgence of the aerospace industry. Higher sales at Harco Inc., based in El Segundo, Calif., a distributor of precision aerospace fasteners acquired last year from Fairchild, contributed to the improvement. Banner said it had yet to reap significant savings from efficiencies at a new distribution and warehousing center in Salt Lake City that opened last year.

    In January Banner acquired PB Herndon Co., a St. Louis-based speciality fastener distributor with annual sales of about $20 million. In February it announced plans to purchase another Fairchild subsidiary, Fairchild Scandinavian Bellyloading Co.
