Universal Switching Corporation (USC)  has acquired all product lines and assets of switch module and system manufacturer, Matrix Systems Corporation (MSC) located in Calabasas CA.


Founded in 1969 by Jack Singleton, MSC pioneered many advances in the manufacture of high-quality, standard and modified standard modular switching products. Many of the standard products began as a special build to meet specific customer needs. USC will support the current product line from their new facilities in Burbank CA.


Norton Alderson, VP of Marketing at USC, Norton Alderson, indicated that  “USC is planning to continue a good portion of the MSC line though some products will be discontinued, or available only to reorder clients”. The continuing portion of the MSC product line will eventually be integrated into the USC offering.


The original MSC core product, the 7000 Series, and its newer counterpart, the 70000 Series target both the switching and relay industries with much of the product designed around high reliability reed-switch technology.


USC will support “in-warranty” products shipped by MSC since April 16th, 2006, and will continue to support most “out-of-warranty” issues on an individual basis.
