Astronics issues upbeat forecast

Astronics Corp. is expecting its sales next year to rise by about 4 percent.

The East Aurora-based aircraft lighting and electronics systems maker said it expects its sales next year to range between $655 million to $695 million. At the midpoint of that range, Astronics’ sales would be about 4 percent higher than its estimated sales for this year, which the company has said it believes will fall between $645 million and $655 million.

Astronics issued its guidance for next year’s sales as the company also announced that its test systems business, which was reinvigorated by its acquisition of EADS North America’s Test and Services Division during February, has won an additional $88 million order from its largest customer.

The company is expected to provide a more detailed outlook for 2015 when it releases its fourth-quarter earnings early next year.
