About Namco

Namco – For Innovation and Integrity, Choose Namco

Founded in 1937 when the heavy industrial control sensor industry was still in its infancy, Namco Controls has been the leader that other manufacturers seek to emulate ever since. Beginning with the introduction of the SNAP-LOCK® limit switch, the Namco name has been synonymous with rugged reliability under even the most challenging conditions. Today, we are still the Number One source for limit switches for use in Nuclear Power Plants qualified to NRC requirements, with installations around the world.

Part of what makes Namco a unique leader in the industry is our history of innovating and creating new solutions when nothing on the market is suitable for an emerging application. When non-contact electronic sensing was required in automotive assembly lines, Namco was the first US Company to respond. We patented internal short circuit protection for 2-wire sensors and developed the first weld field immune (WFI) sensors to survive resistance welder applications, solidifying our reputation as a leader in high reliability electronic sensing.

Namco has its headquarters in Elizabethtown, NC. Manufacturing is also carried out in Elizabethtown, NC.
