CORPORATION OF AMERICA
70+ years of service | 5,000+ international employees
In 1989, our Huntsville, AL location was established. After repeated requests from our display customer base, in part due to our capabilities and quality, we saw great potential in providing an EMS solution to the market. As a result we entered into contract manufacturing in 1996 and have been successfully providing our services to many industry market sectors including automotive, industrial, commercial, medical, appliance, lighting and telecom. Our Huntsville location is also now the proud home of FutabaUSA.
Headquartered in Hoffman Estates, IL, FCA is comprised of four locations in the United States; each offering their own unique support of the business. In addition to manufacturing in Huntsville, AL; Hoffman Estates, IL includes an engineering design group, testing and display sales; Wixom, MI supports automotive sales; El Paso, TX performs product inspection and warehousing.
Futaba Corporation was founded in 1948 in Japan as a manufacturer and seller of receiver vacuum tubes. Utilizing vacuum tube technology, Futaba began manufacturing vacuum fluorescent displays. In 1962, Futaba began producing radio control equipment as well as press die set components, establishing what still remains as two of the company’s primary divisions. This was followed by the development of mold base components and the more recent addition of VFD modules to complete the lineup of Futaba’s major products. Our American based branch of the company, Futaba Corporation of America (FCA), supports these same technologies and is a leading provider of Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS) including PCB Assembly to complete box build, test and engineering design. The branches of Futaba’s products include:
- Vacuum Fluorescent Displays (VFD)
