BreconRidge was a contract manufacturer of electronic and especially telecommunications systems headquartered in Ottawa, Canada. BreconRidge acquired Ridgeway Research Corporation, the manufacturing division of Mitel Networks and 4test.

The name BreconRidge is based on the practice of founder Terry Matthews to name companies after geographic entities especially those entities that have connection to his childhood home in the Marches area on the border of Wales and England. BreconRidge was derived from the Brecon Beacons range of mountains in Wales and from the seed company Ridgeway Research Corporation.

BreconRidge was purchased by Sanmina-SCI in May 2010. Sanmina-SCI closed the only US BreconRidge facility in Ogdensburg, NY moving the telecommunication repair operation housed there to Guadalajara, Mexico
