OEM Controls Blog

OEM Controls has been the leader in design and development of electrohydraulic controllers and control systems since our establishment in 1966. We configure each product to individual customer specifications using field-proven components, a long list of available options, and state-of-the-art engineering expertise. Our core products include single and multi-axis joysticks and controllers, ergonomically designed multi-grip handles, electronic valve driver boards, microprocessor-based logic controllers and integrated panel systems.  We provide what our customers want, not just what we have in our catalogs.

OEM’s headquarter is in Shelton, Connecticut and we employ over 200 people. Our blog is an easy way of keeping new and existing customers updated on our latest products and in the loop with current events!
