With over 100 years of technological innovation, we help make a wide variety of products possible in the world’s most rapidly expanding industries. Our components are found in spacecrafts and defibrillators – from outer space to inside our bodies, and in products we use every day. We have the broadest selection of capacitor technologies in the industry, including an expanding range of electromechanical devices and electromagnetic compatibility solutions.

On June 15, 2020, KEMET was acquired by Yageo Corporation.  The combined organization will be a powerhouse of electronic passive components with a leading product portfolio of polymer, tantalum, ceramic, film and electrolytic capacitors, chip resistors, circuit protection as well as magnetics, sensors, actuators and inductors all addressing a full range of end markets. Additionally, the company will have an enhanced global footprint and will be better able to partner with long-standing, blue chip customers worldwide.


Since our founding in 1919, KEMET has been dedicated to making the world a better, safer, more connected place to live. What started in the garage laboratory of an inventor, now spans the globe with thousands of KEMET employees in dozens of locations. We have played a central role in the development of critical technologies that defined modern history. Although we are not a household name, our products are in every household. Our story of innovation is one for the 20th century and beyond. We are built into tomorrow.
