CALUMET, Mich. — Calumet Electronics is celebrating 50 years of manufacturing and community economic vitality in the heart of Copper Country at its facility in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
For more than a century, copper mining was the lifeblood of the Copper Country. However, by the middle of the 20th century, mining jobs were in a steady decline. Refusing to watch a dedicated and determined workforce fall into economic despair, a few innovative local business leaders established a new electronics company to provide family-sustaining jobs — Calumet Electronics was born.
Calumet produces printed circuit boards (PCBs) for applications demanding zero failures and zero downtime, and requiring lifetime performance. The customers that utilize Calumet for PCBs design and manufacture critical systems for communications, industrial controls, aerospace, medical devices, power systems, and the military.
“The company has made ongoing investments in infrastructure, technology, and most importantly, in the people who manufacture and stand behind our products,” said Steve Vairo, president and chief executive officer of Calumet Electronics.
The company is one of fewer than 150 remaining PCB manufacturers in North America, and one of the few U.S. companies that specialize in PCB fabrication and engineering solutions made entirely in the United States.
"Calumet Electronics has amazing teams excited to be solving industry problems,” said Todd Brassard, vice president and chief operations officer. "The people of this company have a deep pride in their workmanship and a strong drive to deliver genuine service and support. We are confident that with the combination of our continually advancing technological expertise and incredible workforce, we will continue to expand on our strong leadership position in the American electronics industry."
