Happy Halloween from Bead!
Bead Electronics manufactures precision continuous reeled, solid-wire and tubular components for the telecom, automotive, connector and lighting industries.
Bead Electronics manufactures precision continuous reeled, solid-wire, and tubular contact pins for the telecom, automotive, connector and lighting industries. Our custom components deliver the performance of machined pins at the price of stamped, and they can be tooled in a fraction of the time at a modest cost.
The Bead-formed manufacturing process, called swaging, yields superior value. That's because it's a high-speed, virtually scrapless cold-forming process capable of producing small metal parts that are dimensionally consistent and inexpensive.
Mission: What sets Bead apart is our ability to deliver custom solutions designed to address unique customer challenges with rapid prototype and production development. If you need a custom interconnect, no one can deliver faster or more cost-effectively than Bead. We offer the highest level of service available -- demonstrated by over ninety-plus years of customer loyalty.
Happy Halloween from Bead!
Bead's tool and die apprentice, Henry Lucas, spoke on a Millennial panel at an NHMA event in Stratford last week to discuss views on how newer generations choose careers, the Millennial workforce behaviors and how to attract young talent for manufacturing growth in Connecticut.
No one knows better than Millennials what inspires their aspirations for not just a career or job -- but a vocation they can feel passionate about.
