Calumet Electronics is celebrating 50 years of manufacturing and community economic vitality at its Calumet facility in the heart of the Copper Country 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 on 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 some of the world’s very best printed circuit boards (PCBs) for applications demanding zero failures, zero downtime, and requiring lifetime performance. The customers that utilize Calumet’s PCBs design and manufacture critical systems for communications, industrial controls, aerospace, medical devices, power systems, and the military.
The company is one of fewer than 150 PCB manufacturers in North America, and one of the few that specializes in PCB fabrication and engineering solutions made entirely in the United States.
As other companies shifted production overseas over the years, Calumet has remained 100 percent committed to American manufacturing and jobs with the absolute best quality products to its customers. While their services and operations continue to expand, Calumet’s underlying principles have and will remain constant and continue to set them apart from the rest of the industry.
Calumet will continue to offer safe, secure, and sustainable solutions to our customers, providing a secure harbor for their intellectual property and providing sustainable domestically-sourced engineering and manufacturing capabilities, capacities, and lead-times to ensure our customers achieve their business objectives and retain their competitive advantage.
