Member of the Week 

We are pleased to announce Ohmite Manufacturing Company as ECIA’s Member of the Week. Ohmite has been the leading provider of resistive products for high current, high voltage, high energy, heat sinks, and filter applications for almost 100 years (2025 marks 100 years). The company's full complement of resistor construction includes wirewound, wire element, thick film, and ceramic composition.

Ohmite started operations in a small shop on the west side of Chicago in 1925. Founded by David T.

As the electronics industry grew and continued to develop, Ohmite continued evolving to service ever-changing design requirements.

Ohmite has been an ECIA member for more than 22 years and part of various committees throughout the years including the Design Registration Committee, Passive Components Market Services Committee and the Statistics and Industry Data Committee.
