MCG Surge Protection Celebrates 50 Years of Perfect Protection

MCG Surge Protection Celebrates 50 Years of Perfect Protection


DEER PARK, NY – This year, MCG Surge Protection celebrates its golden anniversary.  Over the past 50 years, MCG has evolved from a one-man operation in the garage of founder Michael J. Coyle’s three-bedroom ranch home on Long Island to a 14,000 square foot plant in Deer Park, NY. From the original offering of single low-voltage crowbars, the company now makes the widest range of AC Power Line, Data Line, DC and Low Voltage transient voltage surge protectors available. MCG designs and manufactures in our Deer Park, USA facility to the industry’s most rugged specifications. We are proud to say that our products are Made in America.

A graduate of New York University, School of Engineering (BSEE), Mike Coyle’s subsequent engineering activities at Sperry Gyroscope and Hazeltine Corporation centered on high power radar and voltage systems with specific attention to pulse modulators. He recognized the need to protect increasingly sensitive electronic equipment from transient overvoltages in an era when black and white television fueled by giant vacuum tubes was the norm. Mr. Coyle went on to earn groundbreaking patents in the surge protection industry. The most notable are MCG’s Micro-Z low impedance cable and Micro-Z circuitry. Together, these technologies create a low impedance surge path that results in a significantly reduced voltage drop across internal SPD wiring.

Today, MCG protectors are installed all over the world in critical facilities. Their clients include everything from huge corporations (Disney, HBO, Publisher’s Clearinghouse, Yahoo, Estee Lauder) to military facilities and vehicles, hospitals, waste water facilities, processing plants, and airports. You will find their SPDs in UPS systems, generators, and Smart Homes with extensive audio/video systems. Anywhere where downtime is unacceptable and only the most reliable protection will do, MCG is there.

MCG Surge Protection has remained independent. They said, “No” to acquisition by international power conglomerates to concentrate on what we do solely and do best – surge protection.  MCG Surge Protection remains a family-owned and operated business with three generations of the Coyle family. They ensure that the quality of the products and service remains second-to-none. Their customers know that support doesn’t end at the sale and we back our products with a 20-yr “No Nonsense” warranty. Some things haven’t changed in 50 years. Five minutes on the phone can solve your surge protection problems.
