Midwest Electric Products was founded in 1945 by Jack Habinger who started the business manufacturing transformers and remote-control products. Over the years, the business grew and became recognized as an industry leader in manufacturing high quality outdoor to withstand electrical equipment. Jack branded all his products with a distinctive blue duck logo. Today, Midwest Electric Products are still referred to as the “duck” brand.
In 1975, Midwest Electric Products was acquired as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the General Electric Company.
In July 2018, ABB purchased the GE Industrial Solutions business, including Midwest Electric Products.
Fast forward to today, and the legacy of Jack Habinger lives on.
Midwest Electric Products remains an industry leader in the manufacture of top quality weatherproof electrical equipment. The product portfolio is focused on commercial and residential construction, outdoor living, recreation and agriculture.
