Weastec, Inc. was founded in 1988 as a subsidiary of Toyodenso Co. Ltd., a global leader electrical switches, electronics and sensors. Weastec supplies these products to the North American Automotive, Powersports and Power Equipment markets.
The Hillsboro headquarters, a 120,000 square foot production facility in scenic southwestern Ohio, is conveniently located to deliver product directly to major OEMs such as Honda, Toyota and Volkswagen. Weastec prides itself on superior quality and world-class supply chain management, both of which are managed from the Hillsboro facility.
In 2005, the Weastec Technical Center was established in the Columbus, Ohio suburb of Dublin. This thriving engineering center has grown exponentially since its inception, and is truly the lifeblood of the organization. The technical center is responsible for design, development and testing of new products and is the customer liaison throughout the new product creation cycle. The growing staff of talented mechanical and electrical engineers allows Weastec to respond quickly to customer demands and positions the company for future growth.
With R&D being the key to long-term success, the ‘Innovation Group’ was established at the Technical Center in 2017. This engineering bloc is solely focused on challenging the status quo, investigating new technology and developing forward thinking product concepts. Their mission is to think beyond ‘today’ and anticipate what technology is desirable in the car of the future.
