Although not their forte, AirBorn is also a provider of a variety of cable assemblies, flexible circuits, power supplies, and electro-mechanical assemblies, in addition to capacitors, chemicals, connectors, circuit assemblies, controls, fans, fiber optics, filters, fuses, and hardware. They also distribute products from well-known manufacturers such as Abbatron, Emerson Network Power, ACME Electric, Amphenol, Alcoswitch/TYCO, and many others. They currently have 500 employees and annual revenue of $42 million. The company was founded in 1958 by Tony DiAmico for the sole purpose of manufacturing electrical connectors. By 1960, with only 12 employees, their customers had already included such companies as Motorola, Texas Instruments, Lockheed Aircraft, Boeing, and Burroughs. A year later, they acquired automated stamping capabilities through their very first acquisition. 1973 was the year in which AirBorn products entered the military market, due to a contract with Texas Instruments that authorized them to manufacturer AirBorn designs. Over the next two decades, the W-Series (1974), M-Series (1986), and R-Series (1986) were qualified as MIL-spec for military applications. The company made its first international expansion in 2001 by opening an office in the UK. Over the most recent decade, they then acquired CARON Enterprises, which specialized in EMI/EMC electronic filtering solutions, Central Minnesota Tool and StrataFlex. In 2011, they acquired AESCO Electronics, subsequently renamed AirBorn Electronics, which brought them to their current size today.
