Or, if a fully customized design is needed, we have the skills, equipment, and resources to execute those as well. 

It all starts with a conversation to understand your unique needs. 

  • We ask the right questions early on in the process.
  • We think through your entire production and assembly processes and look for opportunities to streamline production, simplify the interface, and reduce costs.
  • We apply decades of industry knowledge in optical, electrical, and mechanical design to develop the ideal indicator(s) for your device.

Our multidisciplinary team is here to help you find the ideal panel mount indicator for your device. It’s about more than selling you a PMI — it’s about solving your design challenges in the most efficient and user-friendly ways possible.
