MPD, Inc.�s roots go back to 1899 and Kentucky Electric. In 1922, Kentucky Radio (or Ken-Rad) was spun off to manufacture an entirely new product, electron tubes. At the end of World War II, General Electric (GE) purchased Ken-Rad and operated it until January 1987. During this time, this facility was part of GE�s Microwave Products Department (MPD). In the 1960s, GE's MPD employment reached over 6,000 people. In 1987, GE sold the business to a group of private investors and MPD, Inc. was formed. MPD Components, Inc. is the portion of MPD, Inc. that was MPD's business in 1987. In 1997, Gary Braswell, President & CEO, and his staff, arranged for MPD, Inc. to become an ESOP. As an ESOP, we have continued to prosper.
