History of Growth
Established in 1955, Panduit has grown steadily, becoming an industry leader with sales over $500 million, 3,500 employees and more than two million square feet of facilities. Panduit has expanded from its initial headquarters facility in the Chicago suburb of Tinley Park, IL, to multiple U.S. locations, as well as plants and sales subsidiaries throughout the world.

Organized for Customer Service
Panduit is a decentralized organization operating under strong centralized control. We are structured into product divisions, each with a complete staff, that designs and manufactures Panduit products. As a result, customers’ needs and applications are quickly identified, understood and addressed.

Leading Edge Design and Manufacturing Technologies
Panduit is committed to utilizing leading edge design and manufacturing technologies to provide the highest quality products to our customers. Our Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) systems and state-of-the-art Rapid Modeling equipment allow engineers to take new product designs from art-to-part in a matter of hours! Additionally, computerized engineering tools such as Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Mold Flow Analysis assure robust, high quality product designs right from the start.

After modeling of the part is complete, ultra-precise machine tools proceed to fabricate the necessary production tooling. This process shortens the design-to-product cycle, drastically reducing new product lead times. Producing innovative products of the highest quality, and at the lowest possible cost, is what drives us to constantly seek out and implement the best design and manufacturing technologies available.

Computerized Automation
To further ensure efficiency and product quality, Panduit maintains leading-edge computer procedures throughout the company and routinely upgrades high-technology equipment to maximize performance in all divisions and subsidiaries. However, we know that no matter how modern machines and systems may be, people remain the key to efficient operation. So, we continually train our employees to do the job right the first time.
