ENCODER PRODUCTS COMPANY REACHES MAJOR MILESTONE

This Year Marks EPC’s 50th Anniversary

SAGLE, Idaho: This year is Encoder Product Company's 50th anniversary. What began in one engineer's garage in 1969, with the world's first cube encoder, is now a world-wide enterprise including locations in the UK, China, and India, with their main location in Sagle, Idaho - where a 100,000 square-foot, vertically-integrated facility houses the corporate headquarters and main factory.


Today, Encoder Products Company (EPC) produces an array of motion feedback solutions, with many more new motion feedback solutions in development. EPC's line of encoders includes:
• The innovative line of Tru-Trac™ linear measurement solutions, all-in-one solutions with encoder, measuring wheel, and spring-loaded torsion arm
• Thru-bore motor-mount incremental encoders
• Heavy-duty shaft encoders
• Magnetic encoder modules
• Programmable encoders
• Absolute encoders with SSI, CANopen, and EtherCAT® communications


"At Encoder Products we have always focused on being responsive to our customers' needs," says John Meschko, EPC's CEO and Chief Engineer.
