About Astronics PECO Inc

History

A pioneer in die-casting in the Pacific Northwest, Product Engineering Company (PECO) was founded in Portland, Oregon in 1938, when Frank McGilvra and Norman Williams collaborated to produce die-cast brake parts. Since then, the Company evolved its product offerings to serve aerospace, defense, healthcare, and energy markets. In the late 1950s, PECO added plastic-injection molding. Then in the 1960s, the Company expanded into injection-molded aerospace products, such as Passenger Service Units (PSUs). In 1970, PECO acquired Sunne Controls, expanding, yet again, into temperature controls. In 2008, the Company was awarded full design responsibility for the 737 Boeing Sky Interior (BSI) PSU. Then in 2012 and 2013, Astronics Corporation acquired Max-Viz and PECO, Inc., and the company was renamed Astronics PECO. In 2015, the company relocated to Clackamas, Oregon. Today, the Company builds upon its roots in innovative design and manufacturing solutions for aerospace and defense customers.
