IO L.A.B. Corp. was established as a customer-focused organization. Our leadership believes that vendors become key vendors when their strategic vision isn't sideswiped by their revenue goals, aka profit-driven suppliers. Other vendors are product-driven, and some by quality. But great vendors are customer-focused.

IOL and Valentini International, Rivoli, Italy, entered into a partnership agreement for IO L.A.B. to provide SYNTAX multipin connectors, high performance application specific cables, cable drums, tooling and accessories exclusively to the North American market. IOL and Valentini have also partnered on the design, development and manufacture of innovative new circular multipin connectors.
