It's Been A Long Time Coming
Two leaders in aviation electronics have decided to consummate
their long courtship by merging. JP Instruments and Vision
Microsystems became a single company on October 1st.
Headquartered in Bellingham (WA), Vision Microsystems designs
and manufacturers advanced engine monitoring systems-including the
popular VM1000 and EC100-for experimental and certified aircraft.
It will continue this as a division of JP Instruments.
Lance Turk, founder and current president, will retain
responsibility for Vision Microsystems' product design, sales,
customer support, and dealer network. "This merger is more of a
joint effort", said Lance. "We contribute our expertise and respect
in the experimental aircraft, and JPI contributes a very strong
production capability," Lance said. "Together, Vision Microsystems
and JP Instruments will create an even stronger entity capable of
faster response in an ever changing marketplace, and aircraft
owners are the winners."
Considering the merger for some time, JP Instruments Founder and
President Joe Polizzotto said, "Vision Microsystems expands our
marketplace by adding a respected product line with a proven record
of success in both the experimental and certified aircraft markets.
By combining our strengths, we can better meet the consumer's needs
with a more diverse product selection and improved customer
satisfaction and support."
Based in Costa Mesa (CA), JP Instruments has dedicated itself to
the design, sale, distribution, and support of high quality light
aircraft avionics systems over the past two decades. Its product
line includes the EDM-700, EDM-800, EDM Twin 760, EDM-9cyl series
of engine data management systems, the Fuel Scan 450 fuel
monitoring instrument, and the Nav-2000 line of GPS moving map
navigation systems that support law enforcement and rescue
