Dallas, Texas March 7, 2022 – Canadian avionics manufacturer, Anodyne Electronics Manufacturing Corp. (AEM) has increased production capacity by moving operations to a newly constructed 35,000 square foot (3,251m2) facility in Kelowna, British Columbia.
The brand-new purpose-built facility, which was announced in 2020, has been designed for increased operational efficiency. This move is the culmination of significant planning which resulted in an unprecedented opportunity for AEM to evaluate and innovate on internal processes and make improvements. The layout of the production area has been designed for the efficient flow of product during manufacturing and increased collaboration between AEM employees.
The new facility adds 10,000 sq. ft. (929m2) from the previous building that AEM occupied and includes new features such as a brand new Muratec Sheet Metal Press, additional MIL-DTL-7788 standard light patterning stations for illuminated panel manufacturing, paint booths, and Alodine line.
Having only been in the new facility for a few months, the AEM team is continuing to see improvements and further opportunities for innovation. “The real opportunity this new facility brings is its custom footprint, layout, new state of the art equipment and efficiencies through optimization of space while providing amenities and comforts for our staff.” says Brian Wall, CEO of AEM.
Known best for industry-leading loudspeaker systems, in 2021 AEM acquired the Eagle Audio line of products, including the flagship P139-HD Digital Audio System and custom P122 and P132 avionics consoles for the AS350/H125 aircraft. As well as dimmer power supplies, audio mixers and power converters. The acquired product line has been added to the existing AEM lineup of loudspeaker systems, caution warning panels, illuminated panels and audio accessories, which are manufactured in the Kelowna facility.
As AEM looks toward the future, there is a heightened focus on continuing the legacy of industry-leading special mission audio systems and complementary accessories, used by multiple high-profile operators in a variety of mission profiles.
