Jeff Nelson founded Custom Connections of Arizona, LLC in 1986. Jeff's history goes back to his childhood. He followed in the footsteps of his father, Robert Nelson, and joined the Air Force in 1971 where he maintained F105's during the Vietnam War. After nine years of service, Jeff settled in Arizona and began his 18-year career with Motorola, managing teams involved with the design and construction of semiconductor manufacturing equipment. He has been instrumental in the development of start-up semiconductor companies over the past 10 years.

Jeff used his 30+ years of experience to combine his love of aircraft and new industrial technologies to start Custom Connections. He takes the techniques learned in both fields and creates unsurpassed quality in both divisions. The industrial division benefits aircraft projects in safety, cleanliness, professionalism, troubleshooting and problem solving. The aircraft division benefits industrial projects by the use of only Mil Spec wire and clamps and specialized wiring techniques resulting in the utmost reliability and ease of maintenance. Military experience in schematics means easy to use and accurate drawings done by Jeff and he includes a full set with every project.

Current aircraft projects include the rewire of a B-25 "Mitchell" and a German Focke Wulf. Current industrial projects include the wiring of controls enclosures for analytical equipment.
