Encoder Products Co, (BECo, the European Division of the multi-national Encoder
Products Corporation), was founded in 1987, beginning operations by
manufacturing a range of incremental and absolute encoders designed especially
for the European Market. Today, more than 20 years later, BECo manufactures the
most complete line of incremental and absolute shaft encoders in the UK, meeting
the diverse needs of a wide range of global customers. BECo's core philosophy is
that each and every customer deserves quality products, superior customer
service, and expert support. Adherence to these principles has enabled BECo to
achieve its goal of maintaining long lasting customer relationships.
inventors of the original Cube encoder, our North American Division, (EPC), has
also been responsible for a large number of "firsts" in the encoder industry,
including the first use of Opto-ASIC technology and the first use of flex
mounting for hollow shaft encoders, to mention just two. These innovations have
not only been widely imitated, they have often become industry standards,
including the original 'Cube' 711/716 Series. The European Division, British
Encoder Products, manufactures a wide range of high-precision, rugged, reliable
encoders available in all popular formats right here in the UK, at sensible
prices, and with remarkably short lead times. The UK manufactured 'Shafted'
Encoder range includes industry standard sizes 15 (38mm), 20, (50mm), 25
(63.5mm), 90mm, and the widely used 58mm. Our 'Hollow Shaft' range provides a
wide variety of 'full through shaft', and 'blind bore' configurations to meet
the diverse needs of the of industrial and motor control applications sectors.
The Absolute Series provides accurate positioning information even in the event
of power loss. In addition, EPC/BECo has developed many ingenious, unique custom
encoders for a diverse group of corporate customers.

selecting an encoder supplier, your top three criteria will most likely be
Quality, Reliability, and Price. These three issues have been our top priority,
during our entire 30 plus years as a manufacturer of optical shaft encoders. To
ensure that Quality remains a top priority, we have invested heavily in a
Quality System that has successfully been audited to the requirements of ISO
9001:2000, an internationally recognized standard for comprehensive Quality
Systems. This Quality System incorporates procedures for timely preventive and
corrective actions so that the quality of your encoder will keep improving. One
visible measure of our emphasis on quality is EPC/BECo's best-in-the-industry
Our Corporate Headquarters and North Americas Division are located close to
beautiful Sandpoint, Idaho, 63 miles from the Canadian border. A newly built
100,000 sq/ft facility is where we design, enhance, and provide customized
encoders for our global customers. This location is ISO 9001:2000 registered.
From this location the Americas Division supports and manufactures encoders for
our customers in North and South America as well as encoder components and some
completed units for other EPC divisions. British Encoder Products UK
Manufacturing Facility, (located in Wrexham, North Wales,) provides the same
super fast manufacturing service for the European, African, Middle Eastern, and
Australian markets, as well as manufacturing a range of incremental and absolute
encoders for other EPC divisions. BECo also undertakes the design and
manufacture of some 'Machine Tool Specific' encoders which directly replace many
of the difficult to source, Fanuc, Tamagawa, Nikon, Mitsubishi, and Kuroda
devices. Our Asian Division, Zhuhai Precision Encoder Company Ltd, (ZPEC),
supports and manufactures several encoder models for sale in the Pacific Rim
countries, and we have an associate company, Jayashree Encoders Ltd, (Jencoder),
located in PUNE, India, who currently manufacture an impressive range of
encoders, for the Indian domestic market
Our intention is always to provide our customers with the best value possible as
an encoder supplier. Providing not only sales offices, but engineering,
manufacturing and repair services positioned around the globe is part of that
The Company enjoys a well-earned reputation for support of our own products, and
we also offer a REPAIR SERVICE, capable of repairing and servicing encoders even
if not manufactured by our own company. Our lines are open from 08:00 through
17:00 from Monday to Thursday, and from 08:00 to 15:00 Fridays.
