About Us

Ruffy Controls Inc. was founded in 2013 by Charles Hayes, Tom Wirbelauer and Joe Elliott in Carlsbad, California. The founding team at Ruffy Controls has over 100 years combined experience in the joystick industry. With an increasing demand for product line expansion, Ruffy Controls brought in David Hurrle and his team of engineers specializing in all things mechanical, electrical and software related.

As an emerging leader and innovator in the joystick industry, our strength as a company is founded on the commitment of helping our customers grow by providing world class products, exceptional customer service and finished goods in stock.
