Located originally in Brooklyn, later in Queens and then back to Brooklyn. EICO started off as a test equipment manufacturer and offered many kits and wired units throughout its manufacturer history. Since 1945, EICO has been recognized as a leader in the design and manufacture of electronic products in kit form. EICO's 20 years of growth is a matter of public record. Responsible for this growth is the company's strict adherence to its policies of top quality products at reasonable prices. The Company's recent move to a modern 110,000 square foot plant marks the beginning of another era in EICO product development and contribution to the Nation's economy.
