Customers. Employees.Technologies. Capabilities. All have played essential roles in successfully shaping what Gentex Corporation is today, and how the privately-held, family-owned company has evolved over the past 100-plus years. Our philosophy of continually reinvesting in our employees, our customers, and our capabilities and technologies, reflects the positive growth of our people, business intelligence, market share in defense and commercial markets, and revenues.
Today, Gentex is a global provider and partner of choice for personal protection and situation awareness products, systems and platforms. More specifically, the company encompasses aircrew life support systems, helmet mounted displays, ground soldier protective equipment, high-performance textiles and communications equipment; and has seven U.S. locations—Carbondale, PA; Rancho Cucamonga, CA; Manchester, NH; Aurora, IL; Millwood, NY; Billerica, MA; and Boston, MA.
Our globally recognized products are designed, engineering and manufactured to protect and allow wearers to successfully perform their duties while tolerating high G-forces, ballistic threats, crashes, high-speed ejections, life-threatening high-temperatures, oxygen deprivation, and exposure to chemical & biological agents and traverse the combat fields requiring lethality, mobility and sustainability for mission success. Failure is not an option, when lives depend on us.
