Lee is organized into five product groups or "cells." Each product group is comprised of its own engineering, manufacturing, and sales teams working together to provide better service and products. Quicker responses and deliveries, higher quality, lower costs and product innovations to better solve our customers' problems are direct benefits of this approach.
The three "aerospace" product groups supply Lee Plugs, solenoid valves, single and multi-orifice restrictors, nozzles, safety screens, check valves, relief valves, flow controls and shuttle valves to a wide range of industries. These include hydraulic and pneumatic applications on commercial and military aircraft, spacecraft, missiles, naval vessels, machine tools, downhole oil tools, power generation equipment, race cars, etc.
The Electro-Fluidic Systems (EFS) group produces miniature fluid control components such as solenoid valves, inert fluid handling components, ink jet printing nozzles, pumps, and manifold systems primarily for scientific and medical instrumentation, and ink jet printing applications.
