Nemco Electronics Corporation was founded in New York in 1975 with a charter to become a world class supplier of tantalum capacitors. Sensing a void in the tantalum supply chain after a serious shortage of supply in the early 70's, Nemco's focus has been to meet the demand for tantalum capacitors in the manufacturing sectors often ignored by competitors. Nemco's corporate headquarters relocated to Northern California in 1979 in order to be better positioned to service the growing manufacturing population in the West while gaining the added advantage of proximity to the Far East. Nemco's focus on supplying this one dielectric type, solid tantalum, gives us the advantage of concentrating all of our resources, technology and manpower to offer unsurpassed levels of product quality and customer service to our market which includes the growing contract manufacturing community. Nemco's ongoing technology road map has evolved to meet the changing needs of the electronics manufacturing sector. From the radial leaded and manually inserted components of the early 70's to the sub-miniature, ultra low ESR, low profile and extended range values of surface mount parts required today, we strive to stay ahead of the curve in developing and supplying the components needed by an evolving industry. Nemco is committed to provide high quality tantalum capacitors and to making them readily accessible to all world markets with a strong emphasis on North American. Our sub-miniature, radial leaded dipped tantalum capacitors pioneered our position as one of the top companies in the tantalum capacitor community for volumetric efficiency and quality. We subsequently introduced the TB series of State of the Artradial dipped tantalums which was designed with all present day features such as small size, laser marking, and meniscus free leads eliminating thru hole plugging for improved solder connections and top side inspection.
