Janco Corporation: The Black Hawk’s Choice for Rotary Switches

Based in Sylmar, California, Janco Corporation is a designer and manufacturer of custom rotary switches, potentiometers, and refined modular control systems for the commercial and military aerospace markets. Founded in 1947, Janco Corporation engineers its products to be as sleek and compact as possible to save weight and space in an aircraft. In the aerospace industry, Janco Corporation is known for its advanced spin-recovery system controls that optimizes safety during flight testing.

Popular with federal agencies, Janco Corporation counts the Naval Surface Warfare Center, the Naval Inventory Control Point, and the Defense Supply Center among its clients. Today, Janco operates as a business unit of Bellevue, Washington-based Esterline Technologies Corporation. Acquired by specialty manufacturer Esterline in June 2012, Janco Corporation adds a well-regarded, profitable company to Esterline’s Aerospace division. The engineering talent and the manufacturing capabilities that Esterline acquired though Janco in the purchase complement the company’s growing cockpit controls portfolio. Janco prides itself on not being tied to any one aircraft company—it services them all. The company’s products are found on such notable platforms as the Space Shuttle, the McDonnell Douglas/Boeing F-15 Eagle tactical fighter, and the Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk utility helicopter. As part of Esterline, Janco’s revenues are broken down as follows: Defense/Space 40%; Commercial Aerospace 40%; and Industrial Applications 20%. Notable contracts that Janco Corporation has recently landed are as follows:

  • In 2012, Janco Corporation received a USD$124 thousand contract from the Department of the Army for its totally-enclosed, explosion-proof, rotary switches.
  • In 2012, Janco Corporation delivered USD$52 thousand worth of switches in support of the Sikorsky Black Hawk UH-60A/L program.
