Acting Governor Guadagno Visits Zytron Control Products, Inc. in Ewing Township

Industry Leader in Engineering Innovation Takes Bold New Approach

Trenton, NJ – Acting Governor Kim Guadagno today continued her outreach to New Jersey’s manufacturers with a visit to Zytron Control Products, Inc. in Ewing.  The stop follows the Acting Governor’s July Manufacturing Industry Roundtable, which provided leaders in the manufacturing industry with the opportunity to speak directly with State policymakers about critical concerns.

“Companies like Zytron Control Products are a great example of our state’s diverse manufacturing sector and the business savvy that allows them to remain viable, providing a wide range of products and services to customers around the country,” said Acting Governor Guadagno. “We are committed to working with our state’s manufacturers, and we applaud Zytron Control Products’ continued growth in New Jersey.” 

Founded in 1985, Zytron manufactures custom electronic temperature controllers in analog, digital and other formats at its Ewing facility. With a network of regional sales representatives, the company handles individual customer accounts across the country.

Zytron restructured its business strategy last year, adopting an approach to make employees more engaged in the day to-day operations of the company.  As a result, Zytron has experienced dramatic improvement in on-time delivery rates.  Additionally, the production process has become more efficient, requiring less time and effort while shortening product lead times.  Earlier this month, Zytron received the Bold New Strategy Award at NJBIZ Magazine’s 2014 New Jersey Manufacturing Awards. 

“We are excited to host Acting Governor Guadagno and have her tour our facility,” said John Wilkinson and George Sare, President and Materials Manager, respectively, of Zytron Control Products. “We are grateful for this administration’s support and we look forward to being a member of New Jersey’s business community for years to come.”

The company’s customer base includes a variety of domestic and multi-national corporations, earning itself the reputation as an industry leader in engineering innovation. Zytron has plans to expand its brand by developing new products that meet the demands of changing technology and provide adaptability to meet customer needs.

Strategically located in the center of the Eastern Seaboard, New Jersey is one of the nation’s strongest hubs for manufacturing offering businesses a myriad of advantages including access to local and global financial markets, a highly trained workforce, and state-of-the-art transportation, energy and communications infrastructures.  In 2013, manufacturing contributed more than $38 billion to the state's $497 billion Gross Domestic Product.  Manufacturers also help drive New Jersey’s economy, with $32.8 billion in manufactured goods exports in 2013.
