Tri-Star Electronics International has been a provider of the broadest selection of high reliability contacts and the lowest total cost solution for Mil-Aero contacts and specialty connectors since 1976.

Some key facts about Tri-Star include:

  • supplying over 90% of the world’s leading aerospace, avionics and electronics OEM’s

  • the first to be fully compliant with the stringent requirements of Mil-C-39029

  • QPL approved for almost 400 different contacts (nearly double the number of any other contact manufacturer)

  • ISO9001/AS9100C third party qualified and registered

  • cost effective manufacturing through custom designed automation

  • over 155,000 square feet of facilities between our locations in California and Switzerland.

  • known for consistently excellent quality and on-time delivery

Tri-Star is focused on continuous improvement – which is accomplished via full company participation in training, lean events and an employee suggestion/reward program. We understand the cost pressures of the marketplace and the need to think outside of the box to find solutions for taking cost out of the product. By working with our customers to determine what is specifically required, we are often able to offer alternate solutions which meet the customer’s requirements at a lower total cost.

We have engineering teams with extensive design experience in the contact and connector fields. We are large enough to handle complex problems, but small enough that your project will get the priority it deserves! Our internal qualification lab is certified by the US Navy and is used extensively as most all of our products require full qualification testing and continued periodic verification testing to ensure process reliability.

We have an extensive distribution and sales network to help support your requirements. For more product information click here.
