1972 – PWI Pioneered Complete Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lighting Systems for Aircraft

PWI began to expand into the electronic manufacturing business and, in 1972, PWI pioneered Complete Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lighting Systems for aircraft. The custom-made lamps were manufactured in-house to meet the customers’ exact needs. While still maintaining the lamp manufacturing and coil winding business, PWI purchased the complete Tape Wound Bobbin Core product line from Friskam Infinetics. These tape-wound bobbin cores can be used in special low-frequency transformer and inductor designs, magnetometers, and current sensing transformers.

2008 – PWI Added Aviation LED Lighting Systems to our Product Line

In 2008, PWI added aviation LED Lighting Systems to its product line and PWI strives to maintain state-of-the-art technology on this ever-evolving product line. PWI has even developed its own in-house Color Rendering Lab in order to achieve the truest color temperature for various settings. We continue to maintain the philosophy and practice of integrity, customer service, and quality that has made PWI the successful business that it is today. We are proud of our past accomplishments and look forward to the partnerships and endeavors of the futures.

Founded in 1963

PWI, Inc., formerly known as Precision Winding, Inc., was founded in 1963 by Miklos (Miki) Lorik. Miki was a Hungarian immigrant who fled Hungary during the Hungarian Revolution of 1956 along with his wife-then girlfriend-and her family to build a better life. Miki modified his wife’s sewing machine to begin his coil winding business, creating small, precision wire-wound resisters. As his business began to grow, Miki purchased more modern and advanced winding machines.
