It's important to Siskiyou Corporation to help our customers and visitors to our web site retain their privacy when they take advantage of all the Internet has to offer.
For more than 30 years, Siskiyou has been an established manufacturer and innovation leading supplier of motion control, opto-mechanic's, and life science's equipment. Our success is based upon being able to provide superior products / service at a fair price and in building long-term trust-based relationships with our customers. Siskiyou's policies reflect these ideals to the extent that it's simply the way we do business. We've been protecting sensitive customer information for many more years than the Internet has been around. And while the Internet makes it easier to collect some of this information, it in no way diminishes our ability to protect it.
