Research & Development

We pride ourselves on our research and development capabilities. At Pride Electronics, we have an Innovation Center and UL Data Acceptance Program (DAP) Laboratory with testing facilities. The Innovation Center is a research, development, laboratory, and pilot plant focused on our accelerating growth. Our talented design team works closely with customers to enhance their existing designs and prints as well as take a concept and give it life. Our UL DAP Lab allows us to go from concept to manufacturing quickly and seamlessly. With a long list of testing available, our UL DAP Lab works to research, develop and evaluate your product and gather the necessary certification needed to accelerate growth and get your product to market.
