Manufacturers & Services
These 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 fabrication equipment.
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
