History of AeroControlex Aircraft Company:
AeroControlex started off in 1933 with the name Great Lakes Manufacturing in Cleveland, Ohio in 1945. Since the company started, AeroControlex has been able to establish itself as the manufacturer and designer of hydraulic, fuel, lubrication and coolant pumps. In 1993, AeroControlex additional mechanical actuators to the existing product offering. AeroControlex takes pride in custom designing engineered systems for pumps, mechanical actuators and air data sensors. At the manufacturing facility, AeroControlex also takes pride in maintaining an extensive test capability machine that allows their engineers to quickly perform development and qualification work such as temperature, altitude, humidity, shock, vibration and endurance. The facility is approximately 60,000 sq. feet and provides complete-in house capability to fabricate, assemble and test all of their products. A recent accomplishment AeroControlex made was the acquisition of Aero-Instruments. By acquiring Aero-Instruments, it gave Pitot Probes, Pitot-Static Probes, Static Pressure Ports, Angle of Attack, Temperature Sensors and Flight Test Equipment for nearly every kind of aircraft that includes commercial aircraft, military aircraft, business jets, general aviation, rotorcraft and unmanned Aerial vehicles.
