The Industry Mourns the Loss of a Leader

ECIA joins in mourning the loss of a true industry leader, James R. Kaplan. 

In 1961, James joined Cornell Dubilier Electronics as a field engineer in Los Angeles. After advancing through the organization, Jim became president in 1978. Over the years the company has expanded and is now a leader in the provider of capacitors. James was active in the electronics industry and ECIA specifically, receiving the industry's honor in 2015, the Gail S. Carter Lifetime Achievement award. Read more.
