Our history

History
EIIT started business in 1986, led by its founder, a person with many years of experience in industry and aerospace. EIIT based its foundations on offering high levels of engineering, security and the vision required to start a business focused on the development of the first automatic test systems for electronics such as ICT (In Circuit Testing) and the functional tests that started to emerge in those times in the electronics manufacturing industry. 

After the first few years of strong development, EIIT quickly identified options in the market to develop standard equipment that could be reused by the customer flexibly, and presented the in-line systems, providing its customers with high levels of return on investment. This product line continues to be developed, increasing the technological capabilities and possibilities for different levels and customer requirements and standards. In 2000, EIIT began its activities in the aeronautics industry, transferring its previous knowledge and experience in automatic test systems and becoming a renowned supplier in most EADS divisions, including Airbus Military, Cassidian and Eurocopter. Using mechanical and automotive resources, EIIT started at that time in parallel to the development of special machines, assembly and test lines, mostly for the automotive electronics industry.
