KEMET Corporation, together with its subsidiaries, manufactures and sells various capacitors under the KEMET brand worldwide. Segments The company is organized into two business groups: Solid Capacitors and Film and Electrolytic. Solid Capacitors Business Group The Solid Capacitors Business Group primarily produces tantalum, aluminum, polymer and ceramic capacitors which are sold worldwide. The company also produces tantalum powder used in the production of tantalum capacitors. The company serves a range of customers in a group of end markets, including computing, telecommunications, consumer, medical, military, automotive and general industries. The company’s ceramic product line offers a line of multilayer ceramic capacitors in various sizes and configurations. The company’s other significant end-markets include computing, telecommunications, automotive and general industries. Film and Electrolytic Business Group The Film and Electrolytic Business Group produces film, paper and wet aluminum electrolytic capacitors. In addition, the business group designs and produces EMI Filters. EMI filters consist of capacitive and inductive elements that reduce electromagnetic disturbance in the frequency range desired. In addition, the company produces capacitor grade aluminum foils utilized as a core component in the manufacture of electrolytic capacitors. The Film and Electrolytic Business Group primarily serves the industrial and automotive markets. Products The company’s product offerings include surface mount which are attached directly to the circuit board without lead wires; leaded capacitors, which are attached to the circuit board using lead wires; and chassis-mount and other pin-through-hole board-mount capacitors, which utilize attachment methods, such as screw terminal and snap-in. Capacitors are electronic components that store, filter, and regulate electrical energy and flow. The company’s product line consists of approximately 5 million distinct part configurations distinguished by various attributes, such as dielectric (or insulating) material, configuration, encapsulation, capacitance (at various tolerances), voltage, performance characteristics and packaging. As an essential passive component used in most circuit boards, capacitors are used for coupling, decoupling, filtering, oscillating and wave shaping and are used in communication systems, data processing equipment, personal computers, cellular phones, automotive electronic systems, defense and aerospace systems, consumer electronics, power management systems and other electronic devices and systems (basically anything that plugs in or has a battery). Sales and Marketing The company has independent sales representatives located in seven countries worldwide including Brazil, Israel, Canada, and the United States. Customers The company’s customer base includes electronics original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), including Alcatel-Lucent USA Inc., Bosch Group, Cisco Systems, Inc., Continental AG, Dell Inc., Hewlett-Packard Company, International Business Machines Corporation, Intel Corporation, Motorola, Inc., Nokia Corporation, and TRW Automotive; electronics manufacturing services providers (EMSs), including Celestica Inc., Flextronics International LTD, Jabil Circuit, Inc. and Sanmina-SCI Corporation; and distributors, including TTI, Inc., Arrow Electronics, Inc. and Avnet, Inc.
