John Wilson, JR
Director Since 2005
Mr. Wilson led the acquisition of VMC from its publicly-traded parent Aeroflex International in 2005 and helped to quickly turn the struggling division around. VMC then acquired Amber/Booth Co., in Houston Texas in 2007 to deliver engineered solutions to the growing client base. In 2007, Mr. Wilson headed the joint venture between VMC’s Wire Rope division and IDC International, Inc., headquartered in Puerto Rico. Mr. Wilson enhanced VMC Group’s competitive edge by acquiring California’s OSHPD approval for the company’s seismically rated vibration isolation product line. He patented VMC Group’s IBC® Signature Methodology to assure successful completion of the IBC –certified ‘TeleCurb’ allowing VMC Group to compete in the national and international marketplace.
In 2015, Mr. Wilson initiated a strategic acquisition of Advanced Antivibration Components (AAC). That same year VMC acquired a 51 percent control stake in Dynamic Certification Laboratories (DCL), headquartered in Sparks, Nevada. Mr. Wilson also led the team that developed the E-Generator based on his vision of an automated engineering cloud-based calculator that provides detailed engineering reports on demand.
Prior to acquiring VMC Mr. Wilson spent a number of years working in the construction industry before forming VMC East, a manufacturers rep firm that represented VMC's former publicly-traded parent Aeroflex International.
