As a result of continued growth and AEM’s expanded capabilities in the research, development and manufacture of specialty aviation solutions, the 11 year old avionics company has outgrown their facility at 1925 Kirschner Road and have unveiled plans for their new home in Kelowna’s North End.

“Our Central Okanagan location is just one of many reasons behind our success, but first and foremost, it’s our people ”, explained Brian Wall, CEO of AEM; “lifestyle is important to the health and happiness of our employees, and our new home at the base of Knox Mountain will offer incredible amenities and greenspace for them to enjoy”.

The 40,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility will be constructed by Emil Anderson Construction (EAC), a fourth-generation construction company well-known in British Columbia for excellence in major infrastructure projects throughout Western Canada as well as residential projects with subsidiary, Dilworth Homes in Kelowna.

“The Central Okanagan offers a number of excellent construction companies to choose from” said Wall, “…we wanted to partner with a local group who shared similar values, had a long track record of success, and was well-known as a dependable, reliable organization.”

Wall spearheaded the search for a suitable location and construction partner and is excited to see the project moving forward. “AEM has experienced substantial growth both in revenue and in our workforce. Our new facility will be bigger, more efficient, and will offer a better lay-out for improved processes, so we can continue to provide world-class products and services to our customers across the globe.”
