Ametherm doubles US manufacturing capacity

ESNA Feb14 pp6&8 AmethermAmetherm, a manufacturer of thermistors and other electronic components for circuit protection, has doubled the size of its manufacturing plant with a newly purchased 36,000-square-foot facility on Carson City’s east side.

In an industry where Asia-sourced components dominate, Ametherm manufactures all its products in the US, at its new facility and at a smaller Carson City plant that was its headquarters from 1994 until recently.

“Our new plant represents an investment in Ametherm’s future and a fulfillment of our immediate requirements for additional space following on our acquisition last month of the Surge-Gard inrush current limiter product line from Measurement Specialties,” said Eric Rauch, president and CEO of Ametherm. “It also stands as a statement of our faith and success in manufacturing in the United States, which we have done successfully for nearly 20 years and began doing at a time when many in this industry were offshoring their operations.”
