Our History

J.F. Taylor, Inc. was founded as an engineering firm in 1983 by John F. Taylor, a retired Naval Aviation Officer and engineer. Over the past 35 years, we have grown from a one-person operation to a company with over 500 employees and $150 million in annual revenues.   From our initial work in the testing of avionics equipment, we have continually leveraged our solid engineering foundation to get involved in systems engineering, software development, and the design and production of high fidelity training devices. More recently, our capabilities expanded to include the design, manufacture and fabrication of single prototypes and the high-volume production of aircraft and maritime kits and components.  We take pride in our history of expanding our business base through the years.  

As J.F. Taylor grew in size, we sustained our technical edge and our commitment to customers and employees.  We are pleased with the success we have enjoyed for more than three decades, and we are excited about the opportunities ahead of us.
