Our History

1996 – Global Industrial Products was Founded

Global Industrial Products was incorporated on July 29th, 1996 in the state of Illinois. Founded by Tom Howland, the company partnered with industry leading manufacturers to provide quality electronic components for OEM’s.

Partnered with:
1998 – Company Growth and Expansion

Two years after it’s incorporation, it became evident that the company would need to move to a larger facility. This expansion coincided with a new relationship with two more electrical component manufacturers.

Partnered with:
2002 – Further Growth

A new manufacturer was brought into the fold in 2002, when the company added World-Magnetics’ lines of pressure, vacuum, and fluid switches to our distribution network.

2010 – Components and Integration

The company took a big step forward when it announced the creation of EVerGreen Drive Systems, a brand focused on the integration of quality components into electric vehicles. Our new partnership with CFR s.r.l. that same year brought the company to new heights. With EVerGreen Drive Systems, Global Industrial Products became Curtis Instrument’s first, and only Authorized EV System Integrator.

2011 - 15 Years of Service and Experience

2011 marked the 15 year anniversary of the company. Offering product lines from seven different manufacturers, Global Industrial Products has a record of outstanding achievement, providing quality products, and offering exceptional support to our customers.

2012 – Putting Theory to the Test

As Curtis Instrument’s sole Authorized EV System Integrator, the engineering and design team at the company retrofitted a 1995 Mazda MX-5 Miata to a 100% electric vehicle. Powered by Lithium-Ion batteries stored in the hood and trunk, the car utilized many of the product lines distributed by the company and is now used as an educational piece for young EV enthusiasts.

2014 – Launch of Online Store

While the company has been known for its outstanding service and support to OEM’s, the launch of globalepower.com opened the door for MRO sales and an expanded distribution network. Components from all our distributors at competitive prices may be found through our virtual store.

2015 – Charging into the Fold

The end of 2015 brought another manufacturer into the company’s distribution network. Delta-Q Technologies manufactures rugged and reliable battery chargers for a wide variety of applications. We are excited to offer their products to all of our longtime and new customers.

2016 – Moving Forward

In concert with the company’s 20th anniversary, we are excited to announce we have changed our name to Howland Technology, Inc. We are still dedicated to offering you the best solutions for all your electrical component and integration needs. As we move forward, we eagerly anticipate working closely with you as Howland Technology!
