Esterline executive management along with local community, government officials, and Advanced Input employees attended the event outside the new structure.
One of the best performers in Esterline’s portfolio of companies, Advanced Input Systems has a consistent track record of year over year growth. Advanced Input Systems entry into the gaming and security vertical markets has fueled much of the recent growth and was justification for the Esterline’s decision to invest in the facility expansion.
Esterline CEO R. Brad Lawrence, Esterline Group Vice President Al Yost, and Advanced Input Systems President Dennis Staver, led the celebration. Brad and Al are both former presidents of Advanced Input Systems.
“Advanced Input is by far the most entrepreneurial business within Esterline Corporation” stated CEO R. Brad Lawrence, “The growth of this company is only limited by the imagination of the management team”. Lawrence was speaking to the flexibility of Advanced Input Systems to move into any vertical market with solutions and technologies to solve customers’ needs in the input device and user interface market space.
