HistoryElectro-Mech Components, Inc. was founded in 1963 and is headquartered in South El Monte, California, 15 miles east of downtown Los Angeles. In 1966 the company opened a dedicated manufacturing facility in Tijuana, Baja California Norte, Mexico, to manufacture its products, and since 1976, EMC has operated manufacturing facilities in Tijuana for other U.S. companies, including GM/Hughes Aircraft and Daneher Joslyn Sunbank Electronics. These shelter? manufacturing facilities offer Electro-Mech’s expertise in doing business in Mexico, handling all administrative functions and allowing the U.S. customer(s) to concentrate on production and quality control.
In 1997, Electro-Mech acquired the switchlight product line from Pollak Transportation Electronics Division (T.E.D.). This product line was also formerly known as Pendar Switchline, Clare Pendar Switchline, and General Instruments (G.I.) Switchline. The acquisition has strengthened EMC’s position in the avionics and aircraft switch industry, both in the cockpit and passenger seating unit (PSU). Product line part numbers included in the acquisition are S180-182, S220-225, S510, S520, and S570 plus numerous custom drawings in the sequence 7xxxxx and 9xxxxx.
