The Exxelia Ohmcraft Story

Our Story

Exxelia was born from the merger of five long-established companies with complementary know-how (Eurofarad, Firadec, Sic Safco, Microspire et Astema) later joined by Temex, Dearborn, N’Ergy, Raf Tabtronics, DeYoung and Micropen. Exxelia is a manufacturer of complex passive components and innovative subsystems, designed to withstand severe environments. Exxelia’s products (capacitors, filters, resistors, slip rings, magnetic components, precision mechanical parts and special sensors) are mainly used in power electronics, energy generation and storage, filtering and signal processing. Exxelia operates in advanced industrial markets such as defense, space, aviation, energy, transportation, medical and telecommunications.

Exxelia is recognized for its ability to meet complex technical specifications and to design standard and custom products passing the most demanding qualification procedures: MIL, QPL, etc.

Exxelia employs around 2,000 employees worldwide spread into 14 sites in 4 countries (France, United States, Morocco, Vietnam).

Established in 1982, Ohmcraft quickly became the leader in thick film, high voltage, high precision resistor design and manufacturing. Expertise in high voltage resistors and high value resistors has enabled our design engineers to meet and exceed the most challenging product specifications. Our technology allows engineers to design application-specific resistors to fit the needs of our collaborative partners. Micropen technology has the same superior technical performance in all of our surface mount resistors, leaded resistors, dividers and networks. Our ability to print on three dimensional substrates allows us to truly customize each project we commit to. Ohmcraft resistors provide industry-leading performance in high voltage, precision, TCR and TCR tracking, VCR and VCR tracking, low noise, stability and pulse-withstanding capability.

Today, the Micropen electronic printing system is the core technology for the design and manufacture of Exxelia Ohmcraft’s complete line of resistors – chip resistors, flat leaded resistors, axial leaded resistors and custom resistive product solutions. In addition, Exxelia Micropen, the sister division, utilizes the Micropen electronic printing system to design, develop and manufacture some of the world’s most innovative electronic devices.
