Military / Navy Markets

The end of the Cold War in 1990 heralded a restructuring period for the American military and defense industry. One of the outcomes of this new era was that political and economic change allowed previously restricted technologies to become available to the general public. Taylor Devices, as a defense contractor, participated actively in funded Government directed research in energy management devices, in addition to the company’s internal R & D programs. Today Taylor Devices has sustained its strategy to provide new and improved products for emerging Military and Naval energy managment projects while continuing to support mature programs.
