HARCO is an award-winning designer, manufacturer, and international distributor of aerospace air data systems, gas turbine high temperature sensors, on-engine electrical cable assemblies, airframe electrical cable assemblies, and other advanced sensor products. Established in 1951, its manufacturing business was based on a need for temperature measuring devices for aircraft engines, naval nuclear reactors, and rocket engines. Since then, HARCO has extended its existing product lines and has added new technologies to include speed sensors, resistance temperature detectors, air data probes, air data computers, and innovations in high temperature and position sensing. Core design, development and manufacturing are located in Connecticut, U.S.A. with additional manufacturing in Mexico.
HARCO has consistently achieved double-digit growth over the past decade. One of HARCO's greatest strengths is our endless commitment to provide customers with innovative product solutions and continuous support. The owners of HARCO have historically made a major commitment to invest more than 50% of the company’s earnings into Research & Development. This has resulted in significant innovations such as a metal matrix composite branded as SIMx for high-temperature applications and our Magneto-Optical Sensors for position sensing. Research & Development has also positioned HARCO to secure patents for several leading-edge technologies.
