Astronics net income rises 43 percent

Astronics Corp. reported a 43 percent increase in its first-quarter net income from a year ago, to $10.7 million.

The East Aurora-based aircraft lighting and electronics manufacturer recorded sales of $162 million, up 15 percent from a year earlier. Diluted earnings per share were 47 cents compared to 33 cents a year earlier.

Peter Gundermann, the CEO, said in a statement the results were “largely as anticipated,” driven by strong performance in its aerospace segment.
