Capabilities & Services

Hoyt is considered “the source” for the design, engineering, prototype, and manufacturing of electrical contact tips, contact assemblies, electrical shunts, and copper extruded backings for industrial motor controls, diesel-electric locomotives, light rail, mass transit, mining, oil and gas extraction and power distribution.

Product Development – When the need arises, Hoyt will serve as an active partner in the product development process. With our facilities, equipment, and expertise, Hoyt will provide valuable assistance in the design, engineering, and prototype construction of electrical contacts and assemblies. This is a relatively unique benefit from a supplier giving Hoyt an important value-added dimension.

Design Support – A fully staffed and experienced design department equipped with the latest CAD systems is available for customer projects. In addition to the cost efficiency and convenience of such a service, product design will actually begin with a head start when the wealth of knowledge, accumulated over our 75 years of specialization, is brought to bear on a project.

Engineering Support – Interfacing with design are Hoyt’s engineering and manufacturing groups. During product development, they have input from the beginning to anticipate and avert most production and application problems. This results in significant savings. Concurrently, manufacturing processes are also developed, which improve product quality and cut lead time by as much as 50 to 75%.

Prototype Construction – The opportunity to evaluate product prototypes is critical to product development. Hoyt has sophisticated CNC and EDM machinery that can reproduce design shapes to within .001″ accuracy. Our materials department will meet specs exactly. Sometimes, we will suggest alternatives based on our depth of experience to improve product performance. Prototype construction is scarce among suppliers and is one of the differentiating factors that make Hoyt unique.

Manufacturing – Hoyt is a fully equipped, modern manufacturing facility with experienced, highly skilled personnel at all levels. Outsourcing to a company such as Hoyt offers major benefits for OEMs. By specializing in the development and manufacture of electrical contacts and assemblies, significant cost savings, superior quality, and shorter lead times can reasonably be expected.

Hoyt is also unique in that short- to medium-size runs are highly cost-efficient for us. Such quantities are impractical for most OEMs but fit perfectly into our production cycles.

No matter what you’re looking for, our manufacturing mill offers the best in engineering. Assemblies, fabricated products, and more are some of the services our industry-leading company delivers. Give us a call today at 800-255-4698 today, and let’s work together on your new project.

Hoyt maintained ISO 9000 Certification from 1994 to 2006.  Hoyt still operates under the principals of ISO 9000 but has made the decision to no longer remain in the certification program.
