Zodiac Arresting Systems America

Zodiac Arresting Systems America (formerly known as Esco) is the world leading designer and manufacturer of aircraft arresting systems. From the earliest days of aviation (air mail pick-up) and for over seventy years, we have developed products for the controlled deceleration of aircraft, including the Space Shuttle. 

Our history parallels the development and growth of aviation. As a supplier of emergency aerosafety solutions, we have perfected the science of creating energy absorption solutions for military and commercial aircraft around the world, with the benefit of saving lives and aircraft. We have also channeled this expertise into related, yet diverse areas such as perimeter security/containment, vehicle arresting systems (VAS) and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) launch and recovery.
We set the standard for excellence in our industry, producing innovative, reliable products through a combination of state-of-the-art engineering and efficient manufacturing. Zodiac Arresting Systems America is certified in both ISO 9001 and Lean Manufacturing principles. We believe our success depends on our unparalleled understanding of our customers' needs, in both military and commercial markets—an understanding that has come through years of service, experience and the development of a highly talented workforce.
Zodiac Arresting Systems America is a company of balance. We're large and resourceful enough to take on the biggest challenges, yet structured to also provide customers with personalized service and flexible solutions. Our foundation is strong and established, yet we continue to walk on the cutting-edge of design and innovative new products.
