“After weighing the alternatives, we came to the conclusion that this new AOI machine was absolutely the best option for us not only right now, but for the future planning of the company. As we continue our complete facility upgrade, our goal is to acquire the best technology available. During the past year we have steadily increased our capabilities and automation to the point where this equipment is but one of the keys to our capital budgeting. These are exciting times for us at Aurora. The future looks brighter than ever.” stated Dr. Kalmus when making the announcement.
