Ron Hansen Jr. has, quite literally, spent his life at CEI. As the son of one of the company’s two founders, his father and namesake, Ron Hansen Sr., he was born into the business. For nearly 40 years the Hansen Family name has been synonymous with Component Engineers, and Component Engineers has been synonymous with skill, precision, and quality.
Ron Jr. rose through the ranks in the company, or “up from the bench” as most in our industry would say, learning the trade from his father and an unparalleled team of skilled toolmakers and machinists. In 2002, Ron Jr. became president of Component Engineers and guided the company through a period of exponential growth. Under his leadership the company physically doubled in size to its current 55,000 sq. ft. facility, expanded its capabilities, and added nearly 60 new jobs.
In 2015, Ron Jr. became sole owner of Component Engineers and continues to support the growth and development of the business and management team. Ron Jr. is an active member of his professional community through involvement and leadership roles, with Freemasons, YPO (Young Presidents Organization), Rotary, and Quinnipiac Chamber of Commerce. The Hansen family continues to play an active philanthropic role in the local community in Wallingford through support of a wide range of community organizations.
