Welcome to Schippers & Crew Inc.

We took a chance on this industry in 1989, two people determined to start a business and provide a service that would be valuable to others. We chose electronics contract manufacturing because of our experience in the area, and because we believed we could do a better job of providing assembly services and creating customer relationships than many other companies already in the field.

Over the years, our belief has been confirmed.  Our customer base has expanded again and again along with the size of our crew, square footage and equipment list. There have been many challenges along the way: booms and busts, outsourcing to foreign countries at the expense of the U.S. economy, and of course, plenty of local competition.  In the twenty-some years of our existence, we believe we’ve come to be among the soundest companies in our field.

We place emphasis on customer service and communication.  If you’re looking for a contract manufacturer, please come see us, tour our facility and talk to our people. We’d like to be your contract manufacturer!
