Our parts are manufactured to rigorous standards in factories located around the world, which meet not only our quality requirements, but our social ones as well. We believe that many components have not been given as much thought as they deserve, and every day we work to find the next innovative design. After all, a defective component can cause complete failure in most devices, and a poorly designed one can cause many inconveniences to end users. It is due to this core value that MPD is viewed as the industry’s leading innovator.
MPD was originally founded in 1980 by three executives with a wealth of experience in the electronics industry. Today, the company is being led into an era of fresh growth under a new president with over 30 years of experience. The company’s name, Memory Protection Devices, refers to the initial usage of our battery holders, which was to power CMOS RAM, a special type of computer memory that is used to store system settings. Although we are still protecting memory with our battery holders, MPD has since branched out and we now have a diverse line of products.
