GEI Inc. was established in 1997 to fill a growing need in an industry that was not being fully served with speed, accuracy, and the ability to provide customized parts with quick turn-around times. Since its founding, the company has grown into one of the premier suppliers and manufacturers of magnetics in North America. GEI has its own state-of-the-art manufacturing plants including the latest one completed in 2004.
GEI’s staff is a diverse and extremely dedicated group that is always striving to provide the best customer service. Company employees work out of the headquarters in San Dimas, California as well as satellite offices in Hong Kong and Shenzhen, China.
GEI’s unique setup as an American-based company give it a unique advantage in the marketplace. Customer service is much easier with an American contact always an easy phone call or e-mail away. Yet, with its factories located in China, GEI keeps costs low. GEI is also an officially registered minority-owned business with the Southern California Minority Business Development Council, Inc.
The manufacturing plants that GEI owns either in whole or with a 50% interest are located in or near Shenzhen in the People’s Republic of China. GEI’s factories are kept up to modern standards and have all necessary certifications. Each facility has passed stringent audits by some of the biggest and best-known companies in the world. To list just a few, this includes United Technologies’ Carrier Corporation, General Electric, Rheem Manufacturing Company (and its Ruud subsidiary brand), Siemens, and Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories (SEL).
GEI Components’ main transformer factory along with its research and development center is located in Dongguan. The facility covers over 1.4 million square feet. It is certified ISO:14001:2004, QC080000:2005, and ISO9001:2008, plus all parts produced here are RoHS compliant. Over 8,000 workers are employed here. There are also six other ancillary transformer factories in the southern China area for specialized products including out high voltage spark transformers.
GEI Component’s main inductor factory is also its newest facility. Built in 2009, this facility covers almost 106,000 square feet. It is certified by SGS as ISO9001:2008 certification and all parts RoHS compliant. Over 500 people work at this plant every day.
