I am pleased to announce that Astronics acquired the assets of the Vertical Power Electronic Circuit Breaker product line on November 26, 2013. Astronics is a leading provider of advanced technologies for the global aerospace and defense industries, including Electronic Circuit Breakers for business jets such as the Eclipse 500, Pilatus PC-24, and Lear 85, under the Astronics’ CorePower® brand. Astronics will continue to manufacture, sell and support the Vertical Power ECB products and is excited to enter into the experimental aircraft and Light Sport aircraft markets under the Vertical Power brand.

Vertical Power offices will be closed during the month of December as the team moves to the Astronics’ offices in Everett, Washington. Please be patient with us during this transition; E-mail and telephone call-back support will be provided during this period.

Thank you for your support over the years, and I hope you are as excited about this next step in the journey as we are here. I truly believe that we have found a great new home for our products with Astronics.

Kind regards,
Marc Ausman
