Coto Technology’s reed relay & reed switch manufacturing facility is located in Mexicali, Mexico. Coto Technology, Inc. originated in Providence, Rhode Island, USA in 1917 as Coto Coil Incorporated - a company specializing in the design and manufacture of coil windings. During the mid-1960’s, Coto expanded its product line by introducing the reed relay – the result of integrating reed switches into coil windings. By 1970, Coto emerged as a leading manufacturer of reed relays with the development of the first patented Low-Thermal EMF reed relay. Coto went on to produce the first ever surface mounted reed relays in 1983, the world’s smallest SMD reed relay in 1994, and the first patented reed relay with >8 GHz performance in 2001.
