The initial production activities was for the Brazilian lighting industry (insertion pins) and until today we are active in this segment.
By 1984, ABS/VABSCO was an established company with its own identity and started to expand its product line. By researching the market and without leaving its original product line (stamping and injection), ABS/VABSCO detected a strong demand for a device called – Micro Switch. Brazilian Micro Switch demand was being supplied through imports. A new phase started. ABS/VABSCO started manufacturing Micro Switches along with its original line of thermoplastic injection and progressive stamping, thus generating more jobs and being capable of expanding manufacturing capabilities.
In 1987, three years after ABS/VABSCO started manufacturing Micro Switches, a new market demand is detected: Connectors. After large investments, much research and developments the company starts manufacturing and specializing in EURO/DIN Connectors, the results were surprising. After 3 years ABS/VABSCO became the market leader in its sector. Today ABS/VABSCO is regarded as a high quality and highly competitive manufacturer of Connectors and Switches. ABS/VABSCO is constantly seeking out new markets, partnerships and joint ventures by maintaining its basic formula for success: constant search to solve its client's requirements with a partnership mentality and high service standards.
