The Helical Story
The HELI-CAL® Flexible (Beam) Coupling was conceived in 1958 when George Sabadash developed the concept and method of producing the HELI-CAL Flexure as a single-piece flexible coupling/coupler. After receiving a strong response from a news release, George realized he had created a necessary product. Ivan Moore, Charlie Romero, and Charles Merrell joined George to build a company to manufacture and market this new and unique product.
Helical began as a basement operation with courage and determination. Incorporation came in 1961, and the company moved from a basement to a garage later that year. Larger facilities were opened in 1963 in Redondo Beach, California. In 1973, Helical moved to its present location in Santa Maria, California to keep pace with continued growth. The manufacturing plant was expanded in 1983. Our latest expansion was completed in 2005 when we doubled our manufacturing space. The versatility and capabilities of the HELI-CAL Flexure have helped HELI-CAL Flexible Products become well-accepted in the worldwide marketplace and enabled Helical Products to grow and prosper.
In February 2015, Helical was acquired by MW Components, joining a family of spring and component part manufacturers with resources to help expand the capabilities of Helical Products in the worldwide marketplace.
