“ We have some pretty heavy and sophisticated machinery , especially for the size of our company .” Daniel indicated they could at least double their business with the current setup .
It has been a challenge to build that cache of equipment , but Daniel and his team have been able to purchase a lot of it used . “ For a young company , it ’ s not easy to fork over $ 30,000 for an ultrasonic welder , for example . But being an engineer , and always liking to repair things , I ’ ve been able to buy used equipment , or parts of equipment , and put them together and they ’ ve been working fantastic ,” Daniel emphasized . Except for the large automated Komax machine ,
they have been able to purchase almost everything on the used market , modifying most for their purposes .
Heltronics started with the legacy products produced under the previous ownership . These were mostly electromechanical assemblies , PCBs for industrial and military communications and some harnesses . They still continue to build those products , but almost all of their growth has been in harnesses for other markets . “ Surprisingly , we have found ourselves with many new customers in specialty automotive , especially in support of the trucking industry .”
