Advanced Switching Solutions

GIGAVAC is considered today’s expert in HV Relays and Sealed Contactors because of years of experience engineering, manufacturing, testing, and applying high voltage relays. GIGAVAC, located in the USA with manufacturing partners in Asia and Europe, is one of the largest suppliers of high voltage relays in the world.

Company Profile

GIGAVAC was founded in 2002 by a small group of individuals who sought to launch a company with customer service as the cornerstone. The original tag line, Today’s Experts in High Voltage Relays, was a testimony to the decades of experience in the engineering design, manufacturing, and application service of sealed switching products brought to the company by its founders.

Sales soon grew allowing GIGAVAC to manufacture even more products at their California facility. This growth also allowed GIGAVAC engineering to focus on using their expertise to develop a new technology tackling the challenges of high power switching in a sealed contactor. The result is the patented EPIC line of sealed contactors introduced in late 2006. EPIC contactors have always been manufactured exclusively at GIGAVAC in the USA.

Fueled by sales growth GIGAVAC moved to a new facility in July 2008. Over the next four years GIGAVAC witnessed continued sales growth in both high voltage relays and Reed Products. However, the dramatic growth was in Power Products. The line of EPIC products grew to include GX Industrial Contactors, MX High Reliability Contactors, and Sensing Contactors. GIGAVAC’s sealed switching expertise soon included products that rely on new patented technologies for lower cost sealed contactors and manual disconnect switches.
