THE AMERICAN RELAYS STORY

AMERICAN RELAYS, INC. is a privately owned, independent Reed Relay manufacturing company, founded in 1978. At that time, management identified a portion of the Reed Relay market whose users have been neglected. That portion is the special requirements area; unusual pin spacing, special package dimensions, unique contact ratings, special coil resistance and voltages!

In today’s world, the trend is toward standardization because that approach seems to be most expedient. What about the application with unique requirements? Do you select a Relay because it looks standard, even though it may not meet ALL of your requirements? AMERICAN RELAYS, INC., being an independent manufacturer, believes in being responsive to those applications with special design considerations and offers it’s customers the best of both worlds.

AMERICAN RELAYS, INC. has combined a blend of the most modern equipment available with "State of the Art" knowledge to produce high quality Reed Relays with unquestionably the fastest delivery time in the industry. All of this helps us maintain very aggressive pricing. Added to this is a continuing R & D program and a staff of engineers geared to provide the correct relay for YOUR application. Since we make our own tooling in-house, our special designed relays are no more expensive than similar standard Reed Relays from other suppliers.

AMERICAN RELAYS, INC. realizes that other segments of the Reed Relay industry requires the use of standard, off the shelf items. We, therefore, also manufacture and stock a vast array of standard Reed Relays commonly used in the industry.
