company continued to grow it's job shop business to the point where
in 1965 Lester Pitcher could no longer handle all of the design work necessary
himself, and he hired Archie Johnson as the company's lead engineer.
One of Archie's first tasks was to design a automatic machine to
manufacture the link bars used in the stainless steel avionics
clamps that we designed and manufactured.
Archie Johnson purchased
the corporation from Les Pitcher's son, David Pitcher. Archie
renamed the corporation to MSP Inc.
In 1979 Archie foresaw the need for a
larger, more efficient building for MSP Inc.'s operations and
decided to locate his new building in Nashville Indiana, a small
community located 60 miles South of Indianapolis Indiana.
June 1, 2002, MSP Inc. sold its old designs of our avionics mounting
clamps and instrument housings, and the right to use the MSP Inc.
name to a third party, but retained
ownership of the MSP Corporation. As part of the sales contract, MSP
Inc. agreed to a 5 year non-compete and to change its name from MSP

purchased our old designs and trademark.)

newer, better designed products under the name Avionics Mounts Inc.
