Yageo – Passive Components
Back in 1977 Yageo leveraged its competitive advantages in mass production economies of scale and cost control to blaze new trails in the precision resistor field, and build the foundation for continued success in the PC era.
But with the arrival of the post-PC era, and the trend toward miniaturization and shorter product cycles for consumer electronics and telecommunication applications, it became clear that future growth would demand globalization, and the ability to become part of customer supply chains through enhanced service.
Yageo currently ranks as the world No.1 in chip-resistors, No. 3 in MLCCs and No. 4 in ferrite products, with strong global presence – 21 sales offices, 9 production sites, 8 JIT logistic hubs and 2 R&D centers worldwide. Yageo’s broad product offerings are targeting at key vertical markets, including applications for mobile, tablet PC, industrial/power, alternative energy, medical and automotive. We serve diversified leading global customers, such as EMS, ODM, OEM and distributors.
Yageo acquired the Phycomp and Ferroxcube brand names from Philips Electronics NV in the summer of 2000.
