Consistency, as well as, accurate Wire Harness Testing contributes to our successful customer relationships. 

Wire Harness Manufacturing and Assembly runs through our veins.

Furthermore, we have built literally millions upon millions of Wire Harnesses over the past 35 years. Many of our employees say they could build a wire harness in their sleep. (This is why they started bringing their pillows to work?)

However, on a serious note, Quality Inspection and Testing is a core process with every order.
