Molding, stamping, plating, machining, and assembly are done in the United States, specifically at our 185,000 square foot Chicago facility. Furthermore our facility in Villa Park, IL provides connector assembly and molded cable. Manufacturing in the US allows us to maintain strict control of production and quality.

An additional manufacturing facility in Inchon, Republic of South Korea supports customers in the Far East.

An increasing number of our molds and dies are built and maintained in-house.

Using Statistical Process Control standards, we monitor and maintain consistent manufacturing performance.

We are able to meet the demands of worldwide approval agencies including UL, CSA, VDE, Semko, Demko, Nemko, SETI, SEV, Mil-Spec and IP68.

A network of international distributors markets our products worldwide.
