Compass, located in the Deming Industrial Park, opened its doors in 2007 with 10 employees. Today, the company has grown to 102 employees, with the focus on continuing to hire.
Compass manufactures wiring harness assemblies for buses used in public transportation. A wiring harness hooks to an engine, which in turn makes it possible for door locks, radios, brakes and batteries to function.
Wiring harness assemblies can be manufactured with up to 400 wires being assembled together in lengths up to 45’.
Compass recently added two new molding machines to create waterproof seals over connectors on the harness assemblies.
Compass Business Development Specialist Jo Anne Shelby said they are reaching out to the aerospace, boat and medical industries to diversify the business.
Compass’ 80,000 square-foot building is powered by 11,000 solar panels, and is described as an ideal green company by Luna County Economic Development Director Linda Smrkovsky.
The company also encourages employees to continue their education by reimbursing them for educational costs.
