Founded in 1984 by Alan Forman and Jonathan Sohnis, Altronix was formed to provide the security industry with more reliable and efficient power solutions.

For nearly four decades, Altronix continues to deliver the quality, innovation and unparalleled customer support that has earned the company a global reputation as being the gold standard in power and data transmission solutions.

“The contributions of our people have created a strong corporate culture which continues to be the foundation of our company’s success. We don’t just design and manufacture products, we cater to the needs of security professionals. The Altronix family makes this happen on a daily basis,” said Forman.

Altronix corporate headquarters, which includes manufacturing, is impressive to say the least. Their new state-of-the-art facility encompasses more than 200 thousand square feet at the Brooklyn Army Terminal in Brooklyn, New York. Altronix employs approximately 300 people. Walk thru the sprawling facility with Forman or Sohnis, and you immediately feel a sense of family that’s uncharacteristic in large corporate and manufacturing environments.

Not only do Forman and Sohnis know what is happening across every inch of their facility, they know everyone’s name and how they came to the company – many of whom have been employees for an extended number of years. The sense of family is both endearing and refreshing, as is the sense of pride that Altronix employees take in their work.


A true design and manufacturing powerhouse from board level up, Altronix’s capabilities are second to none, boasting the latest advancements in technology across every phase of operations. Altronix is an ISO registered firm and part of the UL Client Test Data Program – now referred to as DAT. This capability benefits Altronix and its partners by shortening development time and getting products to market expediently. But ask Forman or Sohnis the secret to the company’s success over the years, and the answer is simply, “Our passionate, devoted staff differentiates us.”

“Our sales engineers are the best in the business in communicating and educating our customers to determine how we can best serve their needs. And our design engineers are constantly exploring new and innovative ways to improve the efficiency, effectiveness and feature sets of our products,” said Forman. It’s the perfect combination of customer engagement, corporate responsiveness and ingenuity that clearly defines the Altronix’s unique persona.

Altronix has been a longtime supporter of numerous professional security associations, including but not limited to the SIA, ASIS, ESA, TMA and AIREF to name a few. Altronix also has a vested interest in corporate social responsibility and provides funding for charitable causes.

Whether you need design or technical assistance, you’ll experience the exceptional customer support that is a top priority at Altronix. The company’s lifetime warranty is also a testament to the extreme quality and confidence that Altronix places in every product that leaves its facility. Packaged in the recognizable blue box, Altronix products are NDAA and TIA compliant.
