Esterline Technologies Corporation

Nemco-logo Nemco Electronics Corporation was founded in New York in 1975 with a charter to become a world class supplier of tantalum capacitors. By focusing on one dielectric type, Nemco would become a leader in the tantalum industry as well as a trusted and respected partner to its customers. Nemco relocated to Northern California in 1979 to better serve the increase in demand from Silicon Valley.

Over the years Nemcoís product line up has evolved to meet the changing performance and form factor needs of the electronics manufacturing sector. From the radial leaded components of the 70ís to the sub-miniature and ultra-low ESR surface mount parts of the 90ís to the new polymer tantalums used in modern designs; Nemco has always had an eye to whatís next.

In 2014 Nemco was acquired by Nexsun Electronics, Inc. co-located its headquarters to Nexsunís Irvine, California offices. Today, Nemco operates as an independent division of Nexsun, and remains committed to pushing the limits of tantalum.
