Global Manufacturing with Local Service and Support

Military & Defense Markets

Defense contractors must meet challenging requirements for high reliability in harsh, mission critical environments. Intense product qualification and long life cycles for low-to-moderate volume products are a way of life for manufacturers of military equipment.

As a leader among military wire harness manufacturers, Segue is ITAR registered and has worked with a variety of defense customers to streamline product development, respond to engineering changes, improve reliability, lower costs, and demonstrate excellence in manufacturing agility.

Segue offers a unique blend not found in typical domestic or overseas contract manufacturers in their core ability and passion to design and develop tooling of unique electromechanical components which when combined with standard off-the-shelf components provides a true “turn-key” deliverable of complex, hybrid electro-mechanical printed circuit board assemblies or cable assemblies in a cost effective manner.
