In 1955, KITAGAWA INDUSTRIES (KGS) opened their doors selling injection molded plastics (such as spacers, cable ties, and clamps) and rubber products. In the 1980’s, KGS expanded their line to include EMC mitigation products, utilizing their expertise in injection molding for clamp-type ferrite cores.
KGS continued their global reach to further expand into thermal interface materials and vibration damping gels and shock absorbing rubber sheets.
KGS persists to evolve and develop new products to meet strict requirements of the automotive industry, especially those for the EV market.
KGS product line include solutions for mechanical, electrical (EMC), electro-mechanical purposes including (but not limited to) EMI absorbers, massive assortments of ferrite cores, cable shields, conductive foam, shielding tapes, EMC grounding straps, SMT grounding contacts, a wide variety of thermal interface materials, vibration dampers, and plastic straps/clamps/spacers.
In 2020, the US-based operations celebrated its 30th year of successful business in Silicon Valley.
