THE history

MANNARINO was founded in 1999 by John Mannarino. It has since grown from a one-person consulting company to a highly reputable engineering firm, providing safety-critical systems, airborne software and electronic hardware engineering services to numerous customers in the aerospace, defense, simulation, space, power generation and rail industries.

In September 2016, MANNARINO became an authorized Design Approval Organization (DAO) for Airborne Software (RTCA/DO-178B/C) and Airborne Electronic Hardware (AEH) (RTCA/DO-254) by the National Aircraft Certification Branch of Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) – a first for a Canadian service-based organization.

John Mannarino’s stellar reputation speaks for itself. He graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Concordia University in 1989, and was awarded the honour of Great Distinction along with it. He was also awarded the Mechanical Engineering Medal (the Chait Medal) for obtaining the highest grade point average among all graduating engineers, and the Prix d’Excellence from the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec (OIQ) for outstanding achievement.

Following his studies, John Mannarino was employed by a leading Canadian aerospace engine manufacturer, where he later became Manager of Controls Engineering, responsible for 30 engineers and 12 concurrent development programs.

In 1999, John Mannarino decided to branch out on his own and founded MANNARINO Systems and Software Inc., which is a privately held Canadian Corporation.

Today, MANNARINO has gained international recognition and has come to be known for its outstanding excellence and impeccable degree of professionalism.
