Through the Ages
Our family-owned company began over 50 years ago in the back of a '66 Dodge station wagon. Using a garage as an office, CEO Henry Mann created Henry Mann Company. Early on, he decided to set his company apart and reached thousands of commercial customers by marketing component processing and electronics production equipment through direct-mail catalogs.
The garage was soon replaced by a small office. Handmade tweezers used to place components on boards evolved into high-speed pick-and-place machines. And the one-man operation became a team of people ready to provide necessary services.
In the 1990s, we became the first in the industry to put equipment pricing on our website. Then, we transitioned from our paper mailer, creating the first ever digital, direct-mail catalog on CD for SMT equipment. Around this time, we officially took on the name Manncorp.
By the early 2000s, the electronics assembly market had expanded to encompass boards and drivers for LED lighting. Manncorp grew to fit that market with the addition of LED placement machines and long-board stencil printers.
Before long, our sister company, the LED lighting distributor ELEDLights, was born. Then, while selling LED lighting and placement machines, Henry Mann became interested in manufacturing his own lighting. This led to bringing the manufacturer LED Living Technology into the family of companies.
Now, Manncorp machines are being used to produce Buy American Compliant LED lighting with LED Living Technology, to then be distributed through ELEDLights. Working together, the whole unit produces high quality products that you can trust. This method of bringing production in-house is exactly what we propose Manncorp customers do in their own facilities.
Manncorp is currently housed in a 35,000 sq. ft., state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in our Pennsylvania headquarters. This is in addition to the 15,000 sq. ft. facility in San Diego, California that has inventory and demonstration capabilities. With facilities on both coasts, we can provide all our USA customers with fast shipping and top-notch customer service.
We always try to be ahead of the problem. As we enter an ever more digital age, we will continue to innovate. Direct methods have served us well, and we intend to continue this model with more modern teleservice options. As we have in the past, we will adapt to fit the needs of our customers, modernizing to provide the best products and services possible.
