Butch Noll, President

Thermal Electronics, Incorporated (TEI) has been part of the Lake Elsinore community for 32 years, opening May 20, 1982.  The company specializes in the production of custom cable and wire harness assemblies, primarily for the aerospace industry, but provides full manufacturing and engineering support for military, defense, aviation, commercial, industrial, medical and specialty markets as well. 

Working the Floor   

Owners Gerald Barnes, David McCullagh and Dave Zackrison recruited Butch Noll as   President three and a half years ago. Since Butch has taken the helm, the company has grown almost 25% and expects to double their growth over the next few years.  When asked what attracted him to the City of Lake Elsinore, Butch said he fell in love with the family lifestyle, and is excited about the growth potential for the company.     He believes Lake Elsinore is a great place to do business and offers much more than meets the eye.

Butch Noll has a simple philosophy when it comes to running the business. "I believe in the "Canoe Theory", everyone rows together" he said. Whether it's picking the music they listen to, or choosing the color of their smocks, everyone's voice is heard. "We're all a team, nobody works for anyone".

Thermal Electronics, Incorporated has built a reputation in the manufacturing industry for their attention to detail, fast delivery and excellent customer service. They are under construction to expand their existing location and plan to build a larger facility on adjacent property in the near future. The company provides highly specialized job opportunities within our City and currently employs 34 full-time employees. They expect to double that figure over the next few years. Currently, they are developing an internship program that will provide local opportunities for our youth looking for a career in manufacturing or engineering.



While this program may help alleviate one of their current challenges, an aging workforce, they still face fierce competition from international companies that produce cheaper products, with lower paid workforces.  But, Noll has no plans to out-source any part of the operation.  He buys only from national suppliers, and sells only to national companies.  Thermal Electronics, Incorporated believes in supporting US companies and we are proud to have them in Lake Elsinore.

Congratulations to Thermal Electronics, Incorporated, City of Lake Elsinore's
"Business of the Quarter"!
