OUR STORY

IntriPlex founder Jim McNaughton worked at a reputable metal stamping company in the Midwest and was disappointed when his company turned down an opportunity to figure out how to stamp a swage mount for an IBM hard disk drive. The company was just not willing to invest – the challenge seemed insurmountable. With a focus on solving problems rather than just acknowledging them, McNaughton left his job, told IBM, “I got this” and started IntriPlex in 1987. McNaughton spent 2 years on applied research, working on a solution to a precision formed swage mount. Did he do it? Yes. The result: it was cheaper, more consistent, and could be produced in high volume, surpassing all standards that machining technology was capable of.

 

30+ years later, we are still building on Jim’s legacy, leveraging advanced engineering and materials knowledge, together with our high-volume precision manufacturing expertise, to create unique and enabling component solutions to address our customers’ most complex mechanical challenges. We are the vanguards of precision forming technology. We were the first component supplier in the industry to implement laser interferometry, SEM, and Statistical Process Control to ensure the highest quality parts. At IntriPlex, we don’t just design, we invent. We don’t just engineer, we manufacture. As a result, we have developed long-standing, value-added partnerships with leaders in a variety of industries.

 

IntriPlex produces and ships high-quality precision components in staggeringly large volumes to our customers around the globe. Since our founding, we have shipped over 15 billion units from our manufacturing facilities, an average of 10 million per week for 30 years. We have factories in the US and Thailand.

A strategic manufacturing advantage

IntriPlex has engineered the needs of our customers into our business model including the addition of a focused manufacturing center near Bangkok, Thailand. Between the US based facilities in Santa Barbara, CA and our Thailand operation, customers can realize many strategic advantages.
