Aspen Avionics Expands Facility, Adds New Staff
Aspen Avionics has accelerated its relocation plans to accommodate rapid growth, the company announced on Thursday, and has moved into new corporate headquarters almost a year ahead of schedule. The company nearly quadrupled its space, moving from a 6,000-square-foot facility to 23,000-square-foot building in Albuquerque's TechCommons Business Center. The company is in the final stages of certifying its new Evolution Flight Display system and is transitioning from an R&D company to a manufacturing company, with related expansion of customer support, marketing and sales activities. "This is much more than a move or a change of address for us," said Aspen's President and CEO John Uczekaj. "The market's enthusiastic response to our Evolution Flight Display line of products has validated our strategies. The additional space will enable us both to manufacture and ship products faster, and to better support our large and growing number of customers."
The company also announced two new hires. Constantinos S. (Gus) Kyriakos is now Vice President of Engineering. In this position, he will manage and lead Aspen's growing engineering staff, and work closely with the company's external engineering partners. Mark Ferrari joins the company as Vice President of Sales and Customer Support. He will be responsible for worldwide sales activities and will build customer-care programs to support Aspen's dealer network and aircraft operator customers.
