How We Do It

Since 1948, we’ve collaborated with our customers to provide the most qualified, durable products that withstand even the harshest environments. Serving a worldwide customer base, we do this with:

  • Over 120 full time engineers on staff to optimize designs
  • Extensive testing to get the design right the first time
  • Comprehensive in-house capabilities to meet all customer needs
  • Over 400,000 square feet of vertical manufacturing in the U.S. plant (including a 70,000 square foot expansion in 2015)
  • Plants in Ireland and China
  • Expert design, development, machinery, and serial for all custom electromagnetic products

You Receive Virtually Limitless Product Options

We thrive on the imagination of our customers. As you continually push industry norms, we have to push even further to accommodate your innovative designs. With limitless customization, your options are virtually endless.

Function

An electromagnetic actuator exists for one reason: to perform work. With over 30 years of experience, our engineers have designed thousands of options for customers. We make sure our products function with optimal performance.

Interface

Lower part counts can mean lower cost. You can potentially eliminate additional parts by consulting with our engineers early in the design phase. We regularly add value to a project by incorporating the mating features of solenoid mounting and armature interface into our custom products.

Environment

We provide products to a wide variety of environments. We have the supply base and the in-house experience to create products intended for harsh environments and specialized specs.

Size

Given today’s energy prices, most components have little space to perform. We design and manufacture custom solenoids that will fit within your space constraints, but still function at the same level of performance.

We Offer In-House Capability for Design, Development, and Manufacturing

We want complete control of the design, manufacture, and quality of LISK products. To better control the quality of our products, we’ve invested substantially in equipment, facilities, and training. Our investments enable us to deliver every order according to specification – on time and on budget.
