Founded in 1987 as an avionics software development consulting organization, Esterline AVISTA has evolved into a premier engineering services provider for critical-systems development projects. In 2003, we joined with Esterline Technologies (NYSE: ESL), a leading specialty manufacturer serving aerospace and defense markets, as their center of software excellence. AVISTA maintains its headquarters in Platteville, Wisconsin, USA and has offices in Blaine, Minnesota, and Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
We currently employ approximately 150 people, most of them on the engineering staff. More than 98 percent of our engineering staff holds a degree in computer science, software engineering, or other engineering fields; they average 11 years of experience. Unlike a staffing agency, AVISTA is an all employee organization — we hire quality and seek commitment, so we can deliver the same.
