About Amerline Enterprises Company
A Rich History That Lends Itself to Innovation
U.S. Army awards AM General a contract to produce the HMMWV (Humvee). The company goes on to manufacture 250,000 vehicles, with Amerline supporting production of 120 Tactical vehicles a day at peak production.
GTE Airfone gives contract to Amerline Enterprises to supply assemblies placing Airfones in U.S. aircraft. Working in conjunction with FAA specifications, GTE becomes Amerline’s first million-dollar customer.
As business grows, Amerline moves from a 10,000 square-foot facility in Cicero, IL, to a 30,000 square-foot facility in Schiller Park, IL.
Philips Healthcare — a provider of generators, tubes, and other healthcare components, and located in Aurora, IL — names Amerline “Supplier of the Year”, presented for excellence in service.
Oshkosh Defense is awarded the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (M-ATV) vehicle and the Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) production contracts. Amerline supplies critical Mil-Spec connectors and robust intervehicular cables to power M-ATV trailers (meeting the contractual obligation to produce 1,000 M-ATVs per month ahead of schedule), as well as critical power connectors and value-added products in support of FMTVs.
Defense Logistics Agency adds Amerline to the Approved Manufacturers Part Listing (AMPL) as an approved source for Intervehicular Cable Assembly 7728814 — a robust cable that brings power from the towing vehicle to a trailer.
Miller Electric selects Amerline’s AEC 95234 connector series for new Sub-Arc program.
Amerline’s Quality Management System is registered to ISO 9001:2008 standard.
Lacking a source for a critical connector for the Light Armored Vehicle (LAV) program, the U.S Army selects Amerline Enterprises to develop a VG95234 Straight Plug AEC06E14S-7S-02 (NSN# 5935-01-560-2396). The connector features a custom adapter to install an environmental heat shrink boot.
Defense Logistics Agency approves Amerline for NATO Connector 11682338, making the company only one of three approved to make the NATO Jump-Start power connector. Alongside this success, Amerline responds to a market demand for more availability and shorter lead times.
TACOM (United States Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command) creates a new National Stock Number for two wiring harnesses Amerline developed for the Flyer Defense Program and supplied to General Dynamics to support U.S. Special Forces.
Amerline’s distribution program begins with Electroshield, located in Yellow Springs, OH.

In a process audit of Amerline, G&W Electric notes the presence of excellent processes, extensive documentation, and highly knowledgeable operators, with an audit score of 99.4 out of 100. Amerline currently supplies 11,000+ power cables for this industry annually.

“We have been Amerline’s distributor in Brazil since 2016.
During this time we have had a significant sales increase of circular military connectors, and we must thank the Amerline team for the great support during these years.
The outstanding quality of their connectors added to the great service level, quick responses and effective communication provided by AMERLINE are key to the success we had up to now and we hope to keep this successful partnership for many years.”
“Amerline Enterprises has consistently supplied the highest quality electrical connectors and cable assemblies to my business for over 13 years. But Amerline Enterprises is more than just a supplier. They provide services that help grow my business by offering engineering and design solutions on custom products. Orders are consistently processed and delivered on time and Amerline Enterprises staff are always helpful and a pleasure to work with. My business would not have expanded into the Mil-Spec connector line without Amerline Enterprises’ products and expertise."
