About Us

For almost 40 years, Raffel Systems has been the leader in developing electronic controls for the seating, bedding and industrial marketplaces. In 1982, Mark Raffel, an owner and operator of a retail furniture store in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, began tinkering in his basement, embedding motors and heaters in furniture in search of ways to make products even more comfortable. His innovative and experimental spirit was the foundation of the company then, and it remains at the heart of Raffel Systems today. 

Since then, Raffel Systems has partnered with the world's most successful manufacturers to develop comfort solutions, motion technologies and control devices for a wide variety of applications.  Our technology aids our ability to establish our products in the marketplace fast.  Our talented engineering staff designs sophisticated and cost-effective electronic control systems for furniture, cinema, bedding, ventilation systems, pump controls, activation systems and door controls—that turn our clients’ visions into realities. 

Headquartered in Germantown, Wisconsin, Raffel Systems is a global producer providing sales, customer service, manufacturing, and technical support throughout North America, Asia and Europe.
