United Electric Controls Moves Precision Sensors Division to Larger Facility

MILFORD, CONN. — September 12, 2017 — United Electric Controls’ Precision Sensors Division is moving to a larger Connecticut facility to accommodate growth in military, aerospace and semiconductor business. Precision Sensors provides custom control, monitoring and alarm technology to support critical functions and is experiencing heightened demand across its product lines. The company is expanding its floor capacity, moving from a 10,000‐square foot to a 30,000‐square foot facility in Milford, CT.

“Precision Sensors’ customers increasingly need precise control, monitoring and alarm technology to protect people, equipment and processes. The larger modern facility ensures that we can continue to deliver the quality and responsiveness for which we are known. Our people are central to this mission so finding a nearby location for them was essential to ensure continuity of service,” said Precision Sensors President Tim Straub.

Located at 340 Woodmont Road in Milford, the new facility is a modern, world class manufacturing plant designed around Precision Sensors’ exceptional commitment to quality. Precision Sensors manufactures all products, in accordance with a Certification of Approval to ISO 9001:2008 and AS9100 Revision C. Primary and secondary production are designed and organized to enhance the ability to rapidly meet shifts in demand. A 50‐percent increase in the number of flexible workstations promotes greater utilization of lean manufacturing initiatives. The new facility also has room to scale upward to meet future demand growth.

History of growth

This is Precision Sensors’ second major expansion.

By 1989, when United Electric Controls acquired it, the company had moved to a 10,000 square‐foot‐building in Milford, Conn. and had expanded its market to aerospace and semiconductor manufacturers
