Who we are
RightHand Technologies is an Original Design Manufacturer (ODM) that provides high-tech custom or semi-custom Circuit Card Assemblies (CCAs) and chassis designs (aerospace LRUs) for industry-leading suppliers to the Aerospace & Defense markets.
Founded in 2002, RightHand Technologies was created from a team of high-speed digital system engineers experienced in 3D video gaming platforms and video-on-demand systems. In 2005, RightHand had an opportunity to apply this expertise to Aerospace and Defense applications that include world class designs for the In-Flight-Entertainment systems and critical video systems used in the Military. The company has grown from a small warehouse in 2002 to a much more comfortable 25,000 square-foot facility acquired in 2013. The building located in the northwest side of Chicago has plenty of room for engineering offices and factory floor space. The RightHand team remains in tact and is still passionate about high-tech product design & manufacturing.
The RightHand offices are situated only 10 minutes from O’Hare Airport and only 20 minutes from downtown Chicago. This convenient location allows for efficient transportation for employees and customers alike.
