Generations of Ideal Relationships

Our name comes from our founding principle. When J. Walter Becker started this company in 1916, he based it on an unshakeable belief in ideal relationships, with his employees, his community, and of course his customers. These are relationships built on fairness, transparency, trust and fellowship.


More than one hundred years later, IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC. is a global enterprise with companies serving technicians and workers across a wide range of industries, from electrical to construction to aerospace to automotive. Our products have been instrumental in helping mankind reach from the South Pole to the Moon, and are paving new paths for the future. Because as J. Walter Becker taught us, when you honor relationships, success for all will follow.
