History of ECI

ECI was founded in 1953 as a supplier of wire harnesses and cord sets to the North American white good appliance industry. Over the next 50 years, ECI captured a commanding share of the white goods industry and expanded into assembly services. The company continued their growth through geographic expansion and by providing the same products and services into many other industries. ECI’s success can be attributed to the company’s focus on providing a total cost solution through superior quality, engineering, technical expertise and outstanding customer service.
