If you’ve played on such slot machines as Sex in the City and Wheel of Fortune, you’ve seen the work of Reno’s high-end contract manufacturer, EE Technologies. This local company produced the toppers and lights for those and many other gaming machines.
But, that’s not all…the company also manufactured all of the LED lighting in the Ford Fusion—from door handles to the glove box to the multicolored ambient lighting.
“The products we manufacture are found in cars and casinos around the world,” said Sonny Newman, president of the company, which employs roughly 125 in Reno and 300 in Mexico. “No matter where you are on the globe, there is a product we have touched.”
EE Technologies engineers, manufactures, assembles and ships components ranging from sensors and printed circuit boards to mechanical assemblies for a range of products. In addition to automotive lighting, the company produces lumbar, suspension and bolster systems, wire forms, mechanical control cables and seating components.
It also manufactures the electronics for rugged pulsed radar collision avoidance systems for heavy equipment operators. Recently it shipped 20 varieties of sensors for classroom science experiments to Kazakhstan, where every child in the country will receive one. .
EE Technologies also manufactures medical devices, sophisticated food processing equipment, along with components for educational, scientific and communications devices.
Throughout the spotless 65,000 sq. ft. facility is a series of huge computer displays—part of an extensive computer system that monitors production, output, quality and performance.
