Nidec Components was established in April 1967 in Japan as a specialty manufacturer of electronics components. The company's philosophy remains unchanged - to be a supplier of high quality products while offering competitive prices. Nidec Components began by developing a wirewound trimmer. This product was enthusiastically received by many sectors in the industry. The initial success of the trimmers laid the groundwork for future development of a wide selection of manufactured products that combined electronics at the start of the electronics revolution.
