How it all began
Appareo was founded in 2003 by Barry Batcheller, our Chairman of the Board. Batcheller’s innovation, enthusiasm, and deep understanding of emerging technologies set the tone for Appareo to stride forward in our quest to help our customers be game changers in their industries.
Appareo has grown to employ more than 200 people across three locations, with an in-house manufacturing facility that is fully-equipped for prototyping and production such as SMT (ISO 9001:2008 Certified), Selective Solder, Router, Programming and MDA equipment for PCBAs.
Appareo has become the U.S. industry leader in general aviation weather and traffic radio receivers. We supply avionics and flight safety devices to many of the world’s largest OEMs and operators. In addition, we design and manufacture electronics (controls, sensors, and display systems) for agricultural and construction OEMs.
