TDK-EPC Corporation (TDK-EPC), a TDK group company, is the manufacturer of TDK’s electronic components, modules and systems which are marketed under the product brands TDK and EPCOS. TDK-EPC was founded on October 1, 2009 from the combination of the electronic components business of TDK and the major German electronic components manufacturer EPCOS AG and its subsidiaries (EPCOS) and is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan.
The aim in forming the new structure was to further strengthen TDK’s market position and thereby contribute to the growth of the TDK Group.The product portfolio of TDK-EPC includes ceramic, aluminum electrolytic and film capacitors, ferrites, inductors, high-frequency components such as surface acoustic wave (SAW) filter products and modules, piezo and protection components, and sensors.The company relies on a worldwide network of design and manufacturing locations in Asia, Europe, and in North and South America.
Complementing each other
TDK and EPCOS complement and mutually reinforce their position, while augmenting areas that formerly were somewhat underrepresented. The result will be a strong electronic components company bound to take its operations to the next level.
TDK is leading in the area of digital home appliances and general components for the automotive sector. EPCOS on the other hand is very successful in the automotive, industrial, and telecommunications sectors, especially in providing tailor-made solutions based on customer specifications. The two companies, therefore, are ideally poised to mutually enhance their efficiency in various regards, including technology, products, marketing, and regional coverage. The synergy effect will result in considerably higher productivity in all areas and will allow the company to build a further strengthened presence in the sector of electronic components, modules and systems.
