Amptec Research Corp. is a small electronics manufacturer that has been producing intrinsically safe measurement equipment for the aerospace industry for more than 25 years. We started in 1997, when our founders noticed a major gap in the aerospace industry – there simply were not enough inherently safe testing options available. Since then, we have made it our goal to become the world's leading manufacturer of fail-safe igniter testers. Our mission is to be the gold standard of intrinsically safe measurement equipment for the aerospace industry by supporting products for decades after manufacture date and introducing revolutionary new products to this rapidly changing field.

Q: Why is it important to be considered a small, diverse business or to champion diversity on your team?
A: Diverse perspectives are vital to the success of any business, as diversity always introduces new ideas and viewpoints, which leads to innovation. We have believed in this ethos since the company began and we continue to champion it today.
Q: What’s an interesting fact about the company?
A: We close our office for two weeks of paid time off over the December holidays every year to allow our entire staff time with their families. This time off ensures our employees return each new year refreshed and more productive than ever. The average tenure at our company is over 6 years, which is proof that Amptec values retention and stability.
Q: Anything else you want to spotlight about the company?
A: We’re proud to be a woman-owned business with a diverse team that manufactures long-lasting products. Our products have always been made from start to finish in the USA and the fact that we have instruments that are decades old and still being used in maintenance wings speaks for itself.
