Imagine Your Perfect Electronic Design & Manufacturing Company

What Benefits Would They Provide To You?

This is the reason why Clayton Controls is in business – to provide you with a powerful assembly & sub assembly manufacturing business partner, that specializes in Electronics and Pneumatics, who will help you to save time – reduce overhead and maximize profits! Now, those are some serious benefits!

We are a sub assembly, contract manufacturer. We’re not an integrator. We do electronic, sub-assembly work only and do not compete with integrators.

Here’s how it all started.

The story of our company is a simple one.

We were known in the industry as Clayton Controls, a component provider. One day we received a call from a large amusement park in Anaheim, CA who asked if we could mount some components, interconnect them on a panel and fit them with the pneumatic parts, air valves, switches, etc. for one of their attractions. Of course we said yes. Because of that one project, we’ve continued to enjoy a successful relationship with our southern California amusement park client. About 7 years ago Clayton Controls separated the electronic sub assembly manufacturing process into a sister company now known as Clayton Engineered Solutions – CES. Our ISO is: 90001:2015

One of the primary Unique Benefits CES provides to customers is the fact they have easy access to sub-electronic manufacturing – build to print! This helps to save our customers both time and money.

We currently have a highly skilled, 20 person staff which includes Engineers, Assemblers, Sales & Office Staff
