William Edison Moulic Sr. and his two sons founded Moulic Specialties in 1945, a company that produced gadgets such as an alarm attached to a radio that would sound in the event of an air raid. At some point the company changed its name to Sono-Mag Corporation and in 1984 formed a subsidiary with Universe Incorporated. The corporation primarily produced automation systems for radio stations. Sono-Mag also made other products, including automated test stands, custom power supplies, military test equipment, ultra-violet air sanitizers, electronic timers, air borne and vibration noise measuring systems, and grain moisture tester controls.
Currently Sono-Mag Corp. / Universe Inc. has a 33,000 square foot production facility where it can customize virtually any manufacturing project that involves electrical, mechanical, electro-mechanical, metalworking, finishing, packing, warehousing and shipping. Sono-Mag has a web site, but as of June 19, 2007 the history section is under construction.
The following collection contains several artifacts that explain what the Sono-Mag Corporation does and produces. The majority of the objects are brochures explaining to customers what their options are in the latest technology in automated radio broadcasting. One will also find, while looking through the collection, two of Sono-Mag’s competitor’s brochures.
