About ASR

Aerospace Structural Research Corporation was incorporated as a Connecticut company in 1995. ASR has since earned a national and international reputation of delivering excellent Design and Analysis services at competitive prices.


1995 - Main Office Milford, CT


Aerospace Structural Research Corp began when gas turbine engine manufacturer, Allied Signal Corp, closed its Stratford, CT plant. Owners Adrian Papanide and Mike Costen were faced with the opportunity to move to Phoenix with Allied Signal or make their experience work for them. With Adrian's strength in mechanical design and Mike's strength in mechanical analysis they realized that if they worked together they could provide a great engineering service directly to corporate clients. That was the start of ASR becoming a full service mechanical engineering firm. Our engineers continue to assist scores of companies in various industries, supplying the engineering analysis and design services required to design and manufacture quality products.
