The Story Of AOP Technologies: Past, Present & Future
For over 50 years, AOP Technologies has partnered with our customers to provide comprehensive and innovative solutions for their manufacturing needs.
- Founded in 1963, Air-Oil Products Corporation began as a Parker Seal Distributor in Portland, OR, and focused on component distribution through the 80’s. In the 90’s, pneumatic products were added to the company’s offerings and a dedicated Automation Group was established.
- In 2002, Air-Oil Products became AOP Technologies and we expanded our value-added offering with significant investments dedicated to contract-manufacturing services. Needing more space to support our new CM operations and future growth, we moved to our current location in Auburn, WA.
- In 2008, we expanded into the electronic automation space, adding Omron and other Electronic Suppliers to our product offering.
- In 2017, recognizing the trend towards automation of manufacturing processes within our customers, we added Omron TM collaborative robots and Kawasaki industrial robots to our portfolio.
- In 2021, we purchased the assets of Western Industrial Products which made up their wire processing business. This purchase increased our machining capabilities drastically and moved us into a new business of wire processing in the aerospace industry.
- Currently, we are headquartered in Auburn, WA with branch operations in Portland, OR, employing over 41 talented and dedicated employees. We are here to serve you through our four core competencies: Distribution Services, Contract Manufacturing, Mechanical Engineering Services, Machining and 3D Printing, and Kitting Services.
We believe that customer service is priority one in today’s market, and that value is best created by combining the products AND services our customers need. If we can help you be successful…we will be successful.
