55 Years of Experience
In 1958, the company began as Staco Switch,
manufacturing lighted pushbutton switches for aircraft.
Staco’s small manufacturing and assembly team created the
first Series 30 switch, which was used in a Fokker F-27 in
1960. In 2006, the company expanded into sub-systems and
ruggedized keyboards, gaining customers in more markets
and more industries worldwide.
Today, Staco Systems’ engineering, testing,
manufacturing, quality control and sales teams share space
under one roof at the company’s California headquarters
and maintain sales representatives in more than 35
countries, enabling better customer service.
