MPD's Other subsidiaries are CMI, Lion Laboratories, and MPH Industries which design and manufacture breath alcohol measurement equipment and police & speed radar equipment.
MPD, Inc.'s roots go back to the days of the Burlews and Ken-Rad or Kentucky Radio. Around World War II, General Electric purchased Ken-Rad and operated it until January 1987. During this time, this facility was part of G.E.'s Microwave Products Department (MPD). In the 1960s, G.E.'s MPD employment in this area reached 6,000 people. In 1987, G.E. 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, and his staff, arranged for MPD, Inc. to become an ESOP. As an ESOP, we have continued to prosper.
