Company Overview

Ask anyone who works at IDEAL to describe the company, and you’ll hear words like “refreshing” and “entrepreneurial.” From our top engineers and industrial designers to IDEAL product experts working in the field, and every role in between, creative freedom and collaboration allows every IDEAL team member to thrive.

It all comes from these core values that drive our company and empower our employees.


People are the foundation of IDEAL INDUSTRIES. We strive to ensure that every member of the IDEAL INDUSTRIES family is valued as an individual and treated with fairness, dignity and respect. We expect the very highest levels of performance and integrity from our employees, but we also strive to create opportunities for those employees to develop and reach the heights of their own potential.


We believe in the importance of generating profit and increasing shareholder value while also fostering a culture committed to the long term. Profit is a necessary part of sustaining a successful business that benefits every stakeholder—employees, customers, shareholders and communities included. We strive to generate profits while pursuing the highest ethical standards in every aspect of our business, from how we operate to how we take responsibility for our actions.

At IDEAL INDUSTRIES, we aim to manage not only the assets and performance of our business, but also its rich family heritage, the long-term sustainability of the family business, and our proud company culture overall.


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.



We are a global, growing, multinational corporation creating in-demand electricity and connectivity solutions, yet at our heart, we are a family business. This unique balance makes us unlike any other company. It allows us to plan in generations, not quarters. It gives us the patience to let industry-transforming innovations come to fruition. And the ability to invest in our communities, bringing jobs and capital to the places we live.

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.

We strive for excellence in everything we do, constantly seeking to evolve and improve our business practices to bring our customers the most exceptional products and services possible. This comprehensive commitment to excellence can be seen in each of our products, services, manufacturing practices and people.


IDEAL INDUSTRIES depends on and takes pride in cultivating valuable relationships with every customer, business partner, employee and community we work with. We are a business that is dedicated to building and maintaining strong, mutually beneficial relationships and we're proud to have a family heritage that reaffirms our culture and the way we treat others.


IDEAL INDUSTRIES values openness and honesty in the way we do business. We're committed to proactively communicating our successes while also identifying potential areas of improvement across the organization.



Our company is founded on the principle of IDEAL relationships. With our customers, our suppliers, our community and most importantly, our employees.

A career with IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC. means you are part of a family. Literally. Because while we are a multi-national corporation, at our heart we are a family-owned business. And, like any good family, we put people first.

Don’t be mistaken. We expect the highest levels of integrity and performance from every one of our employees. It’s how we’ve managed to fuel this company’s breathtaking momentum. But in return, we will help you achieve your fullest potential possible.
