Who is Yageo?

Yageo Corporation (TAIEX: 2327 TW) is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of passive components, with production and sales facilities in Asia, Europe and the Americas. No.1 in chip resistors, No. 3 in multi-layered ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) and No. 4 in ferrites , Yageo commands a leading market position in all product groups and is one of the few passive component manufacturers providing a comprehensive range of resistors, capacitors and ferrites.

A low-cost manufacturer with a culture of efficiency, innovation and customer service, the Company has transformed itself through organic growth and acquisitions from a regional resistor player into a global, one-stop-shopping passive components provider.

Yageo’s passive components are used in a wide range of electronic devices. Their main function is to regulate, store or alter the electrical voltage or current that flows through these devices. Principal customers for Yageo’s resistors, capacitors and ferrite products include leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), distributors, and contract equipment manufacturers (CEMs) around the globe.

Yageo is the first passive components enterprise to provide”One-Stop-Shopping”service for all three major product types: resistors, capacitors, and inductors. Yageo is also the first enterprise to establish”Just-In-Time”warehouses that deliver to customers within 24-72 hours, a service level far beyond the ‘monthly delivery’ that was standard practice at Japanese suppliers.
