When Terry Divelbiss founded Divelbiss Corporation in 1974, he knew his company, specializing in the design and manufacture of industrially-hardened electronic-controlled solutions was built for the long haul.
“We are very proud to have reached this milestone,” says Divelbiss, company President. “But this didn’t happen by accident.
“Unlike other producers of industrial automation which treat ‘modification’ or ‘customization’ like dirty words, we have always welcomed the opportunity to work with our customers to arrive at the best solution when off-the-shelf just doesn't fit,” says Divelbiss. “We have been doing that for forty years and we will be doing that for another forty years.”
Today, Divelbiss continues to lead with its patented PLC on a Chip technology and continues to break new ground for embedded controls. For 2015, Divelbiss is enhancing the product line by adding integrated support for Machine to Machine (M2M) Cloud communications for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) utilizing Ethernet, WiFi, and cellular networks. Decades of PLC design experience went into development of these devices and several families of Divelbiss products use the technology.
Centrally located in Fredericktown OH, the Divelbiss engineering group, manufacturing and corporate offices were combined under one roof when the present 17,000 sq.-ft. facility was built. Automation combined with long-term, conscientious employees help keep Divelbiss competitive in a global market in addition to maintaining the quality customers have come to expect.
Even after 40 years, Divelbiss continues to lead the controls industry. With planned launches of additional new and innovative product lines in 2015, Divelbiss will continue to build on its legacy started all those years ago. Working side-by-side with brother Alan Divelbiss, Vice President; sons Don Divelbiss, Engineering Manager; and Dave Divelbiss, Senior Industrial Engineer; ensures the company Terry Divelbiss began all those years ago will maintain the quality customers expect well into the future. “What set us apart from the competition has always been our attention to providing fantastic customer service, and that will never change,” he says.
