History

Who We Are

Aydin Displays is a former division of the Aydin Corporation, which was formed in 1967. In 1998, Aydin Displays was purchased by Video Display Corporation (VDC), but remained intact, thus ensuring that no capabilities were lost.

In 2005, Aydin Displays acquired the Innovative Display Systems (IDS) division of Three-Five Systems (TFS). That same year, VDC announced the further expansion of Aydin Displays through the merging of two sister companies (XKD Corporation of Morgan Hills, CA, and Teltron Technologies, of Birdsboro, PA) into the Aydin infrastructure. In 2006, Aydin acquired EDL Displays.

In August 2013, Aydin Displays was acquired by Sparton Corporation, signaling a huge leap forward for innovation in Aydin’s capabilities and resources. It was partnered with the now sister company, Stealth, to become Sparton Rugged Electronics.

Since then, Aydin Displays itself has acquired Industrial Electronic Devices (IED) and KEP Marine, again, greatly expanding Aydin Displays’ capabilities and broadening our customer reach in the Industrial and Marine markets.

These mergers and acquisitions have allowed us to expand the line of products we offer, while still providing support for key legacy products from the acquired companies.

In March 2019, Aydin Displays (Sparton Corporation) changed hands to Cerberus Capital Management, ushering in a new era for the company and all of it’s subsidiaries. This shift opened new doors and expanded the realm of capabilities for Aydin Displays, allowing the company to up resources and provide better rugged solutions without sacrificing the quality maintained over the past 50 years.
