Hughey & Phillips (H&P), a global leader in the design and manufacturing of airfield and obstruction lighting technology, announced the acquisition of the Airfield Lighting product line from Astronics DME, a subsidiary of Astronics Corporation (Nasdaq: ATRO) based in East Aurora, New York. This product line is unique in LED technology, which includes elevated, in-pavement and guidance lighting, with customers across the United States.

H&P offers complete solutions for lighting systems designed and manufactured by H&P in the USA, including strobe and LED offerings. The company has a full engineering staff providing comprehensive support and design in optical, electrical, and mechanical disciplines.

The expansion of H&P’s product offerings with the Astronics line rounds out its already-robust portfolio to provide H&P customers more choices — as well as a larger team of specialists to interpret, manufacture and deliver to their exact requirements.

In conjunction with their current products, the Airfield Lighting product line from Astronics DME raises the H&P team to a complete line of FAA approved fixtures offered to the airfield lighting market.

“The Airfield Lighting product line acquisition from Astronics DME strengthens our core business and is a great fit for our strategic direction.
