In our 21st Year of Electronic Assembly

DCA Manufacturing Company History

Since its inception, DCA Manufacturing has engaged solely in the manufacture of custom electronic and electromechanical assemblies with a focus on customer relationships, quality service and products, and being easy to do business with.

The Early Years

DCA Manufacturing was founded in November 1993 in Cumberland, Wisconsin by Dennis C. Aney. Dennis worked for a major regional electronics company prior to founding DCA Manufacturing in downtown Cumberland, Wisconsin (the “Island City”) in a former cheese production facility.

Company Moves to New Location

In 2000, the manufacturing facility was relocated to the Cumberland Industrial Park to facilitate the rapid expansion of the company. With assistance from the local business development association, DCA Manufacturing was able to build an 8,800 square foot facility to house modern automated electronic manufacturing equipment.

New Ownership

In January 2001, Dennis retired and sold ownership of the business to three employees, Bruce Oberg, Carl Proescholdt and Julie Schnacky.  Bruce retired in 2005, and today co-owners Carl and Julie are actively involved in the daily operations overseeing 70+ employees.

Major Facility Expansion

In November 2012, DCA Manufacturing broke ground on a major 14,000 square foot expansion to be completed in September of 2013. The expansion will allow for streamlining and leaning of the manufacturing facility. The expansion will create the room needed for additional equipment, including a laser etching machine, inline precision conformal coating  machine, a solder jet printer, and a completely modern inventory management system.

A New Era In Quality and Value

In 2014, DCA Manufacturing became ISO 9001:2008 certified, and was also awarded two Circuits Assembly Magazine Service Excellence Awards as the winner for Quality and the winner for Value.

In 2015, DCA Manufacturing obtained ISO 13485:2003 certification, and was awarded the Highest Overall Customer Rating by Circuits Assembly Magazine Service Excellence Awards.
