JP Instruments, Vision Microsystems Announce Merger


Vision Microsystems, a manufacturer of engine-monitoring systems for experimental and certified GA aircraft, will merge with JP Instruments, the two companies announced last week. Vision, headquartered in Bellingham, Wash., will continue as a division of JPI, headquartered in Costa Mesa, Calif. The founder and president of Vision, Lance Turk, will retain responsibility for Vision’s product line. “We contribute our expertise and respect in the experimental aircraft, and JPI contributes a very strong production capability,” said Turk. JPI founder and President Joe Polizzotto said, “Vision Microsystems expands our marketplace by adding a respected product line with a proven record of success in both the experimental and certified aircraft markets. By combining our strengths, we can better meet the consumer’s needs with a more diverse product selection and improved customer satisfaction and support.” JPI’s product line includes the EDM-700, EDM-800, EDM Twin 760, and EDM-9cyl series of engine data management systems, the Fuel Scan 450 fuel-monitoring instrument, and the Nav-2000 line of GPS moving-map navigation systems that support law enforcement and rescue agencies.
