As a manufacturing firm, ACDi's biggest differentiator is our people. We're here to do more than simply build "widgets". Our people offer solutions to challenging design and product development issues and are passionate about hitting customer delivery schedules and exceeding expectations. We approach each project understanding that achieving the highest quality possible is required for every step of the electronics design, engineering, and manufacturing process. What we do day-in and day-out has a lasting, meaningful impact across many industries and in the lives of everyday people. At ACDi, we create a seismic measuring system that prevents people from getting stuck in elevators during an earthquake; we defend our nation by helping to build gun turrets for tanks, communication systems for troops, and military avionics; we support NASA programs with communications systems that converse with launched vehicles. We approach each project understanding that achieving the highest quality possible is required for every step of the electronics manufacturing process, because these projects help keep our country and people around the world safe, secure, and free.
