Company History

KDY Automation Solutions was founded in 2006 by Douglas McVey and Allan Salant, two Cornell graduates and semiconductor industry veterans seeking to apply their combined decades of experience and expertise to solve the most challenging engineering problems. Building on Doug's superior technical skills and Allan's years of management experience, KDY immediately established its reputation as an extremely creative, technically competent, client-focused firm.
