Clinton Electronics is celebrating its 46th year in the video and display business. The company has come a long way since 1963 when it began operations in Loves Park, Illinois building black and white television picture tubes for well known industry giants such as RCA, GE, Admiral, Westinghouse, and many more. Clinton quickly became an industry leader by providing customers with a quality product at an affordable price. This success was a direct result of consistently meeting and exceeding customer demands and expectations.
In the late 60’s and early 70’s, Clinton Electronics positioned itself to take full advantage of the ever-growing mainframe and personal computer industries. Once again, Clinton quickly became an industry leader by providing quality products to companies such as Apple, IBM, HP, DEC, and others. With explosive growth came rapid expansion. Clinton began to research future production areas and soon chose Taiwan as an avenue for expansion. In 1969, Clinton Taiwan Corporation opened to meet the ever-increasing demand. By the end of the 70’s Clinton had grown to be a worldwide leader in the monochrome CRT industry with several facilities in Taiwan, New Jersey, as well as the company headquarters located in Illinois.
By the mid 80’s through the early 90’s, the monochrome CRT industry slowed with the PC industry moving toward color CRTs. With a broad knowledge of CRT production and image processing, Clinton then focused it’s efforts on specialty monitors and displays that were built for precise applications such as medical and military displays.
While specialty CRT displays are still manufactured in the Illinois factory, Clinton is now fully invested in the CCTV industry. Clinton Electronics has been a major supplier to the CCTV industry for over 30 years through monitor and display production. In 2001, Clinton began selling to security dealers and integrators.
Today, Clinton is focused more than ever on the security industry and offers a full line of security products. Now in the fourth generation, Clinton is growing yet again.
