New group for connectivity systems and certification

Astronics has combined its new acquisition, Telefonix PDT, with Astronics Armstrong Aerospace to create a group specializing in IFEC hardware, integration engineering, installation design and certification services – the Astronics Connectivity Systems and Certification (CSC) group.

“We serve the world’s leading IFEC providers, and this transition represents further commitment to offer our customers the most complete set of connectivity hardware, installation design and certification services available from a single supplier,” said Peter Gundermann, president and CEO of Astronics. “Astronics CSC combines the best of both worlds – offering a suite of connectivity solutions that can be delivered à
la carte or as a complete solution set, according to customer needs. With all of this capability in-house, we anticipate shortening a customer’s time to market for new, certified IFEC systems.”

Products and services offered by both constituent companies will still be offered. Armstrong Aerospace specializes in the certification and installation of new IFEC, power and other systems, while Telefonix PDT offers cord reels and connectivity hardware including wireless access points, servers and control components. The Astronics CSC structure will also include Product Development Technologies (PDT), a product design and development consultancy.

The former president of Telefonix, Michael Kuehn, is now the president of Astronics CSC.
