Preco Electronics

In 1947, Edwin R. Peterson – founded Preco Electronics as a rebuilder of electronic water pumps, generators and batteries in a 10- by 20- foot tin shed in downtown Boise, Idaho. Over the following years, the company grew both in size and in the scope of its product offering, and by 1967 Preco introduced to the world the first reverse-motion alarm. The move not only infused major growth into the company – it gave birth to a new industry.

Since then, the company has continued to grow organically thanks to the Peterson ethic of constant product and process development, as well as through acquisition. And Preco has continued to set or keep pace with the growth of technology, with state-of-the-art core functions that include research and development, software engineering, product engineering, process engineering, warranty and test engineering, and information technology. The company’s commitment to continuous improvement ensures that each product sold represents a synergy of these core elements.

Success, growth and innovative technology have always attracted sharp, ambitious people that have been central to the success of Preco. The company’s talent pool includes staff and managers recruited from world-leading organizations such as Apple, Boeing, HP, Micron, Motorola, Sun Microsystems and others.
