John B. Thomson founded Thomson Lamination Company, Inc. (TLC®) in 1964 to fill the need for high-end, tight-tolerance stamped electrical components in niche or specialty markets. Today, our product line includes motor laminations and related products with mission-critical applications in the rotating components of a broad spectrum of industries. They go through a high-temperature annealing process within a controlled atmosphere in-house.
To meet the high performance and quality requirements of industries like aerospace, medical, and the military, we use specialty alloys like nickel and cobalt. This allows us to design rotating components that are strong enough to handle harsh environmental conditions but lightweight, compact, and fast enough to meet industry needs. Adhering to our own set of exacting standards, our expert teams ensure quality for orders of any size. We offer competitive prototyping, short-run, and full-production stampings to best serve our diverse client base.
