More than sixty years ago
co-founders Marlan and Rosemary Bourns set up shop in their tiny 384
square-foot garage in Altadena, California. Their idea to provide a method
of accurately determining an aircraft's pitch attitude solved a crucial
problem for pilots. The invention of the first miniature linear motion and
vane position potentiometers propelled their tiny business into a global
corporation, manufacturing a range of products that impact almost every
aspect of today's electronics industry.
From its earliest days, Bourns
established a benchmark for quality, value, and innovation. In 1952, Bourns
patented the world's first trimming potentiometer, trademarked Trimpot ..
Bourns' dedication to excellence ensures continuous improvement of its
products and services to satisfy customer requirements on a global basis.
The company, with worldwide
headquarters in Riverside, California and nine other facilities around the
world has continued growing through acquisitions and start-ups. Product
lines now include precision potentiometers, panel controls, encoders,
resistor/capacitor networks, chip resistors/arrays, inductors, transformers,
resettable fuses, thyristor-based overvoltage protectors, line feed
resistors, gas discharge tubes, telephone station protectors, 5-pin
protectors, industrial signal, irrigation and petroleum protectors, CATV
coax protectors, signal data protectors, indoor and outdoor POT splitters,
network interface devices, and integrated circuits.
Bourns, Inc. serves a broad range
of markets, including telecommunications, computer, industrial,
instrumentation, automotive, consumer, audio, and medical.
