“It is not just a matter of being willing to pay for technology but what is important is knowing how to use that technology to improve products and increase profitability,” said Bob Haefner, sales manager for Stellar Technology. This philosophy has resulted in impressive growth of Stellar Technology, Inc. from its beginning in 1991 with five employees to 46 employees today. The company manufactures highaccuracy pressure and temperature transducers that are used in the aerospace, automotive, pharmaceutical, energy, and military markets. A pressure transducer is an electromechanical device that combines tight tolerance mechanical parts with electronics to measure and transmit pressure readings via an electrical signal. Stellar products can be found in critical applications from the Space Shuttle to drilling rigs tapping into the ocean floor.
