About Us


Established in 1932 in Hillside, New Jersey, the PRECISION RESISTOR COMPANY, INC. (PRC) has worked very hard to carefully protect and uphold our worldwide renowned reputation of manufacturing high-quality, low priced, custom-made, wire wound electrical components for crucial applications. This paved the way, ensuring continued success throughout the highly competitive passive electrical & electronic circuit component industry. Our sound manufacturing techniques and reputation have provided a fortified foundation that has allowed PRC to remain successfully competitive with an unsurpassed level of quality, instilled throughout our product line from the very beginning over 80 years ago, and will remain unchanged as we look forward to a future full of success.

Today, located in sunny Largo, Florida, PRC continues the traditions of precision manufacturing of low-priced electrical components, aided by our highly trained and experienced employees. To accommodate our steady growth as a company, PRC moved its manufacturing plant from NJ to FL in 1985, bringing along many employees who had enough faith in our overall success that they were willing to re-locate their families almost 1200 miles away once we physically out grew our plant in New Jersey. Now that is a true testament of dedication, loyalty and commitment! We are very proud of our hard working employees and applaud their dedication which shines through in each & every finished product PRC manufactures. It is important to us that our employees exemplify these qualities and will continue to employ these type of dedicated individuals who are committed to the quality of our end product. Here at PRC, we are focused on continuing to be an equal opportunity employer that promotes diversity in the workplace, contributing to the well being of our community & practicing eco-friendly manufacturing techniques. Our superior quality products are a direct result of honest hard working employees that are an integral part of of our team here at PRC and vital to our continued success. Your diligent dedication & loyal commitment to our stellar manufacturing team is the reason the quality of our products remains unsurpassed. Your hard work & dedication to our goal of maintaining cost-effective manufacturing excellence & efficiency does not go without notice.

Our vast success can also be attributed to over 75 years of experience & research, learning which manufacturing processes are most successful and constantly looking for ways to integrate new technology and materials to perfect our techniques while being reluctant to abandon time proven methods, ensuring that our product line will continue to out preform the competition. Thanks to a quality staff driven by a strong integral customer base and a desire to build & design the best electrical components, PRC is looking ahead to 75 more years of success.

Precision Resistor Company's mission stands on traditions of manufacturing competitively-priced, high-quality, 100% USA produced custom precision fixed wire wound resistors, wire wound sensors and wire wound shunts for critical applications while continuing our commitment to provide superb service & support while serving the needs of our customers who utilize any of our products.

We would like to thank each & every one of our customers who have allowed Precision Resistor to not only survive, but flourish in a highly competitive industry.
