Experienced Professionals

Orscheln Products has experienced sales, engineering, quality, customer service and manufacturing resources dedicated to the design and production of aircraft and military controls. Our highly skilled professionals build these control cables in a dedicated manufacturing cell. The applications for these cables call for precise tolerances, plus low slide forces and backlash.

From initial design through prototype, certification, and production, we stand ready with an experienced staff to help with all your needs. Qualification testing is available through both our in-house facility and the use of outside certified laboratories.

Years of Experience

Aircraft control cables were added to our product offering in 1998 with the acquisition of Acco Industrial Controls. Through this acquisition Orscheln Products gained aircraft cable manufacturing expertise that dates back to the late 1930’s. Since this time, our product line has been expanded and diversified to include the latest technological advances and materials.
