Korry has its origins in the innovations of a former Boeing engineer, Boris Korry, and the company he founded in 1937, Korry Electronics. He started by manufacturing his invention, the first front-relampable illuminated indicator for aviation, which he sold to Boeing for the cockpit of the 307 Stratoliner. He and his company went on to develop and distribute other innovative display and switching products to meet growing demand from aircraft manufacturers.
Korry’s parent company, Esterline, is an international firm that makes aerospace and defense products in the United States, Canada, France and the United Kingdom. It has annual sales of more than $1 billion.
The Korry product team at Esterline Control & Communication Systems, provides state-of-the-art switches, cockpit controls, night-vision filters, and high-performance KDM displays.
Today, Korry product lines still include the most advanced switches and indicators for aviation as well as custom interface and lighting solutions, including integrated switch panels, displays, and controls. Korry products can be found on most military and commercial aircraft, in addition to many military ships and vehicles.
