Overview:IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC has made its mark by developing the iconic products and practical technology demanded by critical industries like data communications, aerospace, electrical, wire processing, automotive, construction and more.
We’re best known for our wire connectors, which have become the go-to standard for electrical connections around the world, but our innovations also touch the sky -- where nearly every commercial jet flying today was made using IDEAL wire strippers. We’ve reached the moon, as part of the critical equipment on NASA missions. Best of all, we touch the daily lives of skilled tradesmen around the globe, who reach for IDEAL, Western Forge and SK brand hand tools to get the job done right.
From its beginnings over 100 years ago, the IDEAL success story is propelled by the core family values expressed by our founder, J. Walter Becker. Since 1916, we’ve been family-owned and singularly focused on forging ideal relationships with our customers, our employees and our communities. Each generation of family ownership is expected to leave the company stronger for the next. Most important, the family stewardship of IDEAL ensures that our professional management team has the strategic alignment, resources and patience to grow and strengthen the company for generations to come.
We’re focused on the markets that exist today, but we’re also poised to serve the markets of tomorrow. IDEAL is a pioneer of easy-to-use innovations for a range of critical industries, striving to re-invent ourselves and the industries we serve wherever we can. It is our long-term thinking that allows us to anticipate and answer the needs of tomorrow’s tradesmen.
We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished over the last century, but we’re even more ambitious about the next 100 years. That’s how you build an IDEAL company.
