| Where superior quality and excellent service in frequency control begin...
The Fox Family of Products
Many of our more popular models such as standard resistance-welded crystals and TTL Clock Oscillators, are available thru FASTFOX, our system for getting "Rush" orders in a matter of days, not weeks. And to further help the designer speed new products to market and to meet the demand for more flexible, build-to-order (BTO) manufacturing, Fox launched in 1997 the remarkably successful JITOTM Just-In-Time-OscillatorTM program. With JITO-2 parts, industry standard lead times for custom or standard frequency oscillators from 340kHz to 300MHz have been cut from 10 weeks or more to 10 days or less.
How (and Why) We've Grown
By 1989, after having established a national distributor network; installing an advanced computer system; establishing FAST FOX, our "Rush" order delivery system; and having moved to larger quarters several times, we finally settled in our own 25,000 sq. ft. facility. We needed the space, because now we had 60 employees, and sales had reached $20 million. Since then, we've established a new R&D Department as well as a Hybrid Department. We've introduced hundreds of new state-of-the-art products which have redefined crystal and oscillator performance, precision and reliability. We've set up in-depth quality control procedures, and backed them up with our Test and Reliability Services/Documentation system.
Today, Fox is more than 250 people strong. Our product offering fills a catalog of nearly 100 pages. We operate one of the frequency control industry's most comprehensive websites at www.foxonline.com . And, oh yes, along the way, we've managed to win several awards, such as the Texas Instruments Supplier of Excellence for two years running...not to mention our continual top-of-the-list ranking as America's preferred source for frequency control products in countless independent studies.
Such a pattern of remarkable growth and recognition means we must be doing something right.
We believe a large part of it is due to the Total Quality Mindset that has been so much a part of our management and operating philosophy from the very beginning. At Fox, quality really is everyone's first responsibility. It's the only way we do business. And, we intend to keep it that way as long as we are in business.
Where We Are Today
Product Research and Development For many years we have been on the leading edge of frequency control product research, design and development as evidenced by our introduction of the low voltage, miniature SMD 3.3V oscillator...the new sub-miniature tuning fork watch crystal that measures a mere 1mm x 5mm...the design of special packaging and lead configurations...and the remarkable new JITO-2 Just-In-Time-Oscillators line that has revolutionized standard and custom oscillator availability, to name just a few.
All of these developments, and many more, have come from Fox's aggressive, on-going R&D efforts. And we intend to maintain and increase our leadership position...constantly delivering newer, better, more cost effective innovations to the frequency control products marketplace.
Each step in our manufacturing and assembly processes is performed under atmospherically controlled conditions, including our Class 100Clean Room. Each piece of equipment - from our crystal etching machines through the ovens, plating systems, pick and place machines and welding equipment - represents the latest in manufacturing capability, efficiency and quality. This equipment, combined with highly skilled workers and innovative process control techniques, enables Fox to cost-effectively produce the finest frequency control products in the world.
