Electropin Technologies, LLC - Manufacturer of high quality contact pins, connector pins and small metal parts

Welcome Message from Electropin Technologies, LLC President Keith Brenton

Electropin Technologies, LLC purchased Autos wage’s manufacturing equipment on January 1st, 2019. Autoswage was established by my grandfather, Bartley E. Hall, and two partners, in a small garage on Roberts Street in Shelton, Connecticut in late 1946. It was originally called HGH Products and produced contact pins for fluorescent lighting as well as Beaded Chain for military dog tags. In 1952 operations moved to the Star Pin Building on Canal Street and the name was officially changed to Auto-Swage Products. At that time, Grandfather bought out his two partners and became the sole owner. In 1963 Bart purchased the property at 726 River Rd, Shelton Ct and built a 30,000 sq. ft. building with in house plating capabilities. Donald L. Brenton, my father and Grandfather Hall's son in law, joined the firm in 1966 and successfully led the company until his retirement in 1998. Sadly, Grandfather Hall passed away in 1973.

An innovative spirit led Bart to design the Automatic Die Swaging machine which was used until 2010 as the primary production process. Due to changes in markets, it was determined that the Swaging process was no longer the most beneficial production method for Autoswage and that equipment was sold.

Today Electropin Technologies LLC’s focus is on the Automatic Die Rolling(ADR) and Cold-Heading manufacturing processes. Although we no longer use Bart’s machines, his innovative spirit of finding a better way is still alive and well and we use that to push the capabilities of our processes and to produce high-quality pins at faster production rates and lower costs than screw machines and other manufacturing processes. Our customers today continue to benefit from his foresight and technical acumen.

Electropin Technologies, LLC is located in Goldsboro North Carolina in a brand new 10,000 sq. ft. facility. We have new electrical, new plumbing, 100% LED lighting and a clean modern building.

We are now a 3rd generation family business with the 4th generation working their way up. We continue the family tradition of providing our clients with high-quality parts, personalized customer service, and the lowest possible prices.

Thank you for your interest. We look forward to getting to know you.
