Dryden, NY, July 15, 2016 -- Sturges Electronics Products, LLC has announced a change in ownership of the company. Gary W. Nelson, a local businessman with international experience running both large and small companies, purchased Sturges Electronics on July 1, 2016, and plans to invest and grow the business at its current location in Dryden.
Sturges Electronics Products Co., Inc. was established in 1978 as a contract manufacturer.
Principle operations consist of cable and wire harness assembly, mechanical assembly and
testing of devices. The company has been supplying defense, medical, energy, industrial and
commercial industries for the past 39 years.
The company had plans to shut down on December 31, 2016, which would have resulted in the
loss of 14 jobs. With the change in ownership, these jobs have been saved as well as new jobs
created. Mr. Nelson plans to continue hiring locally as the business grows.
