Manufacturers & Services
companies make the machines that are used to produce the products designed
by engineers. As a newly ordained member of the half-century club who
has been in the defense contracting and commercial design and production
field for nearly 30 years, I can remember the days when most electronics
companies had in-house machining capabilities.
I used to love going down to the machine shop to watch the lathes,
end mills, and other precision tools turn out parts for torpedo nose
cones, airborne radar system chassis and antenna steering units, and
many other assemblies. I witnessed the slow, steady metamorphosis where
the shops were turned into empty chambers. Only a few benchtop prototyping
and repair tolls remained. It was a sad thing to watch. I even remember
when companies like General Electric had their own in-house PC board
Now, most of that work is farmed out to contract houses. They do
an excellent job, but the engineers and technicians do not have the
opportunity to see their creation converted from paper (a computer screen
nowadays) to a physical part. Sure it is probably best to concentrate
specialties for efficiencies, but just as having a car that you can
actually do your own work on deepens your knowledge of the vehicle,
being able to see the product development process run from concept through
to production adds a dimension to your professional experience that
cannot be gained otherwise.
My policy is to only list companies that actually manufacture product or offer services related to the page title subject.
Product distributors and sales representatives are not listed (they have their own page). This helps guarantee that each
listing offers a unique product or service. NOTICE: I am no longer adding hyperlinks due to so many companies asking to
be removed because of some issue with Google Statistics. Your best bet is to use a search engine to find company
websites directly. If you are interested in advertising, please visit my
