ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS SDN BHD began life in 1978 as a research facility by 2 engineers who used to be attached with SIRIM. The venture ran out of funds and it was bought over by the present owners in 1979 as part of a family business diversification exercise.
ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS SDN BHD began production of dry-type metallised polypropylene film capacitor in 1983 under the direction of Mr Bettinni Piettro. After retiring from his long service in Arcotronics, Italy, Mr Piettro was engaged by the owners as a consultant from 1983-1988. During his engagement, Mr Piettro not only introduced European capacitor production technology to the company but also inaugurated the original product ranges.
