Aerotech Reaches $1B Shipped Milestone

October 2013 marked the month when Aerotech, a global leader in motion control and precision electromechanical systems, surpassed $1 billion of product shipped since the company’s inception. Aerotech President Mark Botos said, “This achievement validates our principle of consistent investment in research and development with a strong value proposition for our customers. Coupled with continuous improvements in our manufacturing facilities and global customer support network, we are strongly positioned for continued growth in the future. Just in the past year alone, we initiated and largely completed a multi-million dollar expansion of our U.S. world headquarters, established Aerotech China in Shanghai and are completing a move to larger and upgraded facilities at our U.K. operations. We deeply appreciate the support of our customers worldwide and the Aerotech employees both past and present who have made this milestone possible.”
