Electrical Projects Built to Order

John Henry Foster builds electrical control panels to your specifications, small and large. Our panel shop has designed and built thousands of custom panels based on customer-specific requirements. All of our electrical panels are supplied with electrical schematics, powered up and fully tested before they ship. We’ll even come to your facility to mount and wire the panel to your existing machine.

Our commitment to the customer experience is demonstrated through easy access to service and solutions by phone to troubleshoot, as well as service on-site. Customers receive professional, above and beyond, efficient and customized support when they need it.


JHF offers a number of electrical automation solutions to help you leverage your production costs, streamline your automation applications and fill the labor shortage.

John Henry Foster’s first class panel shop comes equipped with highly skilled technicians using state-of-the-art technology to manufacture your panel to the highest quality standards. Each panel is customized to your own unique specifications and follows industry standards.

Most of our panels are designed and constructed within our warehouse, but we also have the ability to support you in the field when required, always adhering to strict assembly standards regardless of build location. Our skilled staff of assemblers and large work area allow us to handle projects of any size – whether small operator control stations or large multi-door control panels. Our custom control panels are built using quality components from leading manufacturers.

Need UL-508A certification? No problem. Our quality is unsurpassed and each panel goes through a multi-point test and inspection procedure before it leaves the floor ensuring proper operation upon on-site installation. We can also assemble from your purchased parts, or purchase the parts based upon your bill of materials, always negotiating with our suppliers to insure you the most cost effective solution.

We take the time to understand the overall project, get early input from key people involved and leave behind an appropriate support system. Whether you need us to build to your specifications or if we’re providing design/build services, our goal is to complete the job on time and within budget.
