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.

At ACDi, we’re more than just a contract manufacturer.
