Company Profile | February 22, 2001


Jerrik Connecting Devices was founded in 1989 by 3 partners who had extensive experience in the connector industry, and especially in filtered connectors. They believed they could manufacture filtered connectors better, faster, and at lower cost than the other connector companies.

Their primary focus from the beginning was on customer satisfaction. They emphasized responsiveness and technical ability to get done what seemed impossible in a very short amount of time. This resulted in tremendous growth for Jerrik.

In 1995, Radiall acquired Jerrik and included its non-filtered products and space connectors into Jerrik's activities. This led to a new revival in Jerrik and more expansion with the addition of another 14,000 square feet. Currently 120 employees work at Radiall-Jerrik (Tempe). In 1999 Radiall-Jerrik added a production facility in Nogales and now employs nearly 100 people at this facility.

In 2000, the company name was changed to Radiall-Jerrik and both the Tempe and Nogales facilities have completed ISO 9001 certification. Radiall-Jerrik has changed to a market-oriented organization focusing on military aerospace, space, and instrumentation markets.
