Since its founding in 1956, ACR Electronics, Inc., a Fort Lauderdale, Florida based company, has been determined to provide the best electronic life support and signaling equipment modern technology could devise. This commitment to the quality of its products catapulted the young company into the forefront of the safety and survival industry. ACR rapidly became established as a leading supplier to the search and rescue communities, both commercial and government. For 40 years, ACR's continuing commitment to excellence and the high quality and dependability of its equipment have made the company a world leader in the dynamic field of safety and survival. From the dazzling heights of the NASA space program to the earthly concerns of the individual boater, flier and outdoorsman, ACR products have led the way in design, development, and durability.
More than 10,000 people owe their lives to ACR. Even the Apollo 13 astronauts were among those aided by ACR, since it was specialized ACR flashlights that were the astronauts' sole light source following the explosion aboard the spacecraft. ACR has been credited with saving countless lives during military operations. Its survival beacons, hand-held VHF radios and Firefly® emergency pocket strobes are standard gear for combat troops.
ACR's commitment to saving lives is underscored by its manufacture of all of its products pursuant to a MIL-I-45208A inspection system
