EPC’s 50th Anniversary marks major milestone.
Encoder Product Company celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. What began in one engineer’s garage in 1969, with the world’s first cube encoder, is now a world-wide enterprise including locations in the UK, China, and India. The company’s corporate headquarters and main factory in Sagle, Idaho is a 100,000 square-foot, vertically-integrated facility.
Today, Encoder Products Company (EPC) produces an array of motion feedback solutions, with many more new motion feedback solutions in development. EPC’s line of encoders includes the company’s line of Tru-Trac linear measurement solutions, all-in-one solutions with encoder, measuring wheel, spring-loaded torsion arm and other encoder technologies.
“At Encoder Products we have always focused on being responsive to our customers’ needs,” says John Meschko, EPC’s CEO and chief engineer. “We focus on priorities that are important to our customers to provide innovative products and excellent service that gives them the best overall value for their money. We work hard to meet or exceed their expectations. Looking forward, we are excited to continue the company’s traditions with new products and innovations in the world of motion feedback devices.”
