Kemet  Company Overview

Kemet Corporation was originally established by Union Carbide Corporation in 1919 in Cleveland, Ohio as Kemet Laboratories. The name KEMET is a blend of the words chemical and metallurgy. One of Kemet's first products was an essential element in vacuum tubes. It is estimated that over 80% of the vacuum tubes used by the Allies during World War II contained Kemet getters. Kemet Corporation, as it is known today, was born of a management-led buyout in December, 1990. Today, Kemet leads the capacitor industry in producing high-performance solutions, including the world's most complete line of surface-mount tantalum, ceramic, and aluminum capacitor technologies. Kemet's capacitors are fundamental elements used in every type of electronic equipment, including computers, telecommunications, automotive electronics, military electronics, medical electronics and consumer electronics.
