In 1967 Mr. Edward A. Uslar decided he would build from the ground up one of the first independent printed circuit board shops in Northern Indiana. He resigned from his position as supervisor of ITT’s printed circuit board facility, and with $5,000, a couple of hand drill presses and some borrowed plating tanks, he opened TriTech Manufacturing Inc. in the back of a vacant dairy plant. TriTech’s first customer, Magnavox, was so impressed with the quality of their first orders that they guaranteed to purchase all of TriTech’s available capacity for the first year.
Success resulted in rapid expansion both in plant size and capacity. TriTech quickly outgrew the dairy and within two years moved its operation to a custom built facility on the southwest side of Fort Wayne, Indiana. In 1973, Edward H. Uslar and Thomas M. Uslar joined their father’s business. Benefiting from their engineering background and prior work experience, Ed’s sons brought new perspective and fresh ideas to the company.
Today, TriTech utilizes it’s 11,000 square foot facility to provide prototype to production quantities of simple single sided print & etch to complex multi-layer PC boards to over 200 different customers. No matter what the order size, TriTech Manufacturing Inc. is your “one stop shopping” center for printed circuit boards.
