Founded in 1987 as an avionics software development consulting organization, Esterline AVISTA has evolved into a premier software engineering and project management services corporation 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 an office in Roseville, Minnesota.
We currently employ approximately 150 people, most of them on the engineering staff. More than 98% 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.
In 2007, Esterline AVISTA celebrated our 20th anniversary in the software engineering services arena serving the aerospace, defense, and medical industries. AVISTA clients such as Rockwell Collins, GE Aviation (formerly Smiths Aerospace), Honeywell, and Boeing celebrate with us on our successful evolution from a 10-person engineering staff to who we are today.
