Deco Products: History of Deco

Ever wonder where Deco Products got its name from? The source of the name is its home, charming town of Decorah, Iowa, located in the Winneshiek County of Northeast Iowa. Deco was founded and remains in Decorah, Iowa. Deco has continued to thrive throughout the years, continuing to ascend in operations and employment through the years.

Deco Products was founded in 1960 as a part of Lake Center Switch Company, an automotive supplier of dimmer switches and other electronics. Deco’s current ownership established Deco Products in 1984. Since then, Deco has largely migrated from automotive parts to other markets. The first employee of Deco was Lew Storlie who eventually became the CEO of the company and worked there for 50 years. His son, Chris Storlie, took his place as CEO and has been CEO for the past 10 years. Deco is now working with the 3rd and 4th generation of owners and many of the Deco leaders have “roots” in North East Iowa and have been with Deco for many years.

Deco Products has been a reliable “Made in USA” zinc die cast manufacturer since 1960. Deco Products provides exceptional service and quality products for a multitude of industries. A few services Deco provides are precision engineered zinc die casting, powder coating, assembly, CNC Machining, and DFM-Part Design.
