Now worldwide cooperation
Samsung Electro-Mechanics (SEMCO), a subsidiary of the Samsung Group with headquarter in South Korea, is one of the leading suppliers of passive components. The expansion of the partnership with the Rutronik Elektronische Bauelemente GmbH in North America represents a strategic milestone for both partners for the further development of the global market presence of SEMCO ceramic capacitors in the automotive sector.
„We are very excited about the continued expansion of our mutual success story. By working closely with SEMCO, we have established a global network to support our customers worldwide“, says Stefan Sutalo, Director Product Marketing Passive Components at Rutronik. „One of SEMCO‘s absolute advantages right now is the long-term assurance of supply chains through its in-house production and development departments“.
Especially for the global customers with locations in the US, Canada and Mexico the expansion of the franchise for North America means a worldwide local support and supply of the different logistic systems with SEMCO-components through Rutronik. Multilayer ceramic capacitors are essential components for the promising applications in the range of Automotive & E-Mobility, Advanced Robotics, Industry 4.0 and Internet of Things (IoT). For example, SEMCO equips the X7R Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors for the automotive industry with metalepoxy-termination as a standard.
„With Rutronik we have the right partner to grow especially in the automotive sector“, said Sungdo Son, President of Samsung Electro-Mechanics America. „The global orientation of the family-owned company and the comprehensive network of sales, FAEs and product marketing offers us an optimal position to successfully place our products.“
