DeYoung Manufacturing Inc.

DeYoung2DeYoung Mfg., Inc. has designed and manufactured high quality custom electro-magnetic components for the aerospace, computer, industrial, medical, telecommunications, and test and measurement sectors of the electronics industry since 1972.  These components include transformers for both linear and switch mode power supplies, inductors, sensors, and custom cables.

Today, we are one of the few remaining resources for high mix, high reliability products handmade in the U.S., available in quantities from one to thousands per year and backed by experienced in-house BSEE design engineering support.  Our modern manufacturing facility includes approximately 12,000 square feet of manufacturing space where efficient equipment and techniques are used to produce competitive electro-magnetic products. Sizes produced range from miniature to 1.5KVA. Common production runs range from 1 to 30,000 per year.

Precision performance has made DeYoung Mfg. a leader in the industry for meeting the requirements of aerospace, medical, military and commercial industries with quality registrations for ISO:9001 and AS9100 Rev C.  Our client list includes aerospace OEMs and contract manufacturers including: Airbus, Astronics AES, BAE Systems, Boeing, Honeywell Aerospace, Lockheed Martin, Rockwell Collins and Universal Aviation Systems Corp.

DeYoung Mfg., Inc. is a family-owned and operated manufacturing company. We own a modern, custom designed facility located in Kirkland, Washington. Founded by Malcolm DeYoung in 1971, and run by the next generation for more than 30 years, the company still maintains a personal, hands-on management style that translates into a higher level of service and client satisfaction. As a smaller company, we’re more flexible and responsive and able to handle complex and difficult products efficiently. We can execute to our client’s specifications, team up to modify existing designs, or put our BSEE engineers to work bringing your concepts to life. 

With its extensive production and engineering expertise, effective quality control and positive client relations, DeYoung Mfg. is able to maintain a stable work environment.  We are proud of the low turnover among our highly trained and skilled production teams.  Our employees take ownership in their work; producing defect-free products of the highest quality and long-term reliability.

Our exacting system of in-process inspection and rigorous testing has given many of our clients the confidence to eliminate their own incoming inspection process. We also earn excellent ratings from our clients for on-time delivery and quality.  Our culture of quality goes back to founder Malcolm DeYoung, who after five years as a BSEE design engineer at John Fluke Mfg. Co., Inc. worked as a quality manager at a Redmond based aerospace electronics manufacturing company. Our commitment to doing the right thing is ingrained in every aspect of our business.

"As a hands-on owner/manager, I have limited time to be involved with broader industry associations," said Martin DeYoung.  "PNAA provides value through:
•    Connections and communication channels with the PNW aerospace community, especially the quality professionals and manufacturers.
•    Quality system and aerospace manufacturing news and information including AAQG and IAQG updates through newsletters and informational emails. 
•    Public policy updates with an eye to aerospace issues delivered in a fact based format allows DeYoung Mfg to stay in touch with the limited time available."
