Delevan, a manufacturer of electronic and magnetic components for over 75 years, is getting back to its roots with its new brand as it becomes a part of Regal Rexnord. Formerly API Delevan, it launched the new identity October 4 which also aligns it closely with its new parent company. It became part of Regal Rexnord through that firm’s $5 million acquisition of Altra Industrial Motion in March.
“This is an exciting time for our business and provides a great opportunity for us to remember our roots of Delevan Electronics while acknowledging our future as part of Regal Rexnord,” said Matthew Rigerman, Delevan’s business unit manager. Delevan was founded in 1947 as a small electronic manufacturer in Delevan, New York, originally branded as Delevan Electronics. Through the years the company has bloomed into a diverse manufacturer in design, development and manufacturing of electronic devices such as inductors, radio frequency coils, chokes, transformers, resolvers and custom components.
During the past 76 years, Delevan has seen several changes in ownership. In 1959, Delevan became one of the first acquisitions of the newly formed America Precision Industries, this is where it inherited “API” from. In the 2000s, the Delevan brand jumped from one parent company to another starting with Danaher in 2000, then going to Fortive in 2016, shifting over to Altra Industrial Motion in 2018, and now landing with Regal Rexnord in 2023.
