NCE has been manufacturing DCC Products on an OEM basis since 1993. Originally they offered only chip sets that contained software enabling other DCC manufacturers to build DCC systems. As time went on some of those manufacturers asked NCE to first supply partial assemblies then complete assemblies in addition to the chip sets. This has helped NCE to grow into a full time electronic design and manufacturing firm devoted entirely to the development and sale of products for the control of model railroads. NCE builds an amazing array of products for both their own customers, other DCC manufacturers and locomotive manufacturers. They keep labor costs low by utilizing modern automated robotic assembly for most products. Recently, NCE has more than doubled their manufacturing space and taken an option on an additional area to more than triple it.
NCE's product designer is Jim Scorse. He has numerous patents in the area of imagery, video and computer network data communications over noisy channels.
