Products

For more than 50 years, Gowanda Electronics has been a leader in the design, manufacture and supply of precision electronic components for RF, microwave and power applications. Components include standard off-the-shelf and custom-designed inductors, chips, chokes, coils, conicals, toroids, transformers and magnetic devices in surface mount and axial-leaded (thru-hole) configurations that are used in a wide variety of electronic applications around the world. The company offers RoHS compliant products as well as lead-containing components for QPL military/defense and other demanding requirements. Non-magnetic inductors are also available for situations where magnetic components would compromise system performance, as in medical imaging (MRI) equipment.

Markets

Gowanda’s products are used primarily by OEM companies and other entities interested in high performance electronic component solutions for the equipment and devices they manufacture. Applications include use in industrial automation & control equipment, instrumentation, medical & diagnostic equipment/devices and test & measurement equipment. Such products are used in a broad range of industries including aviation/aerospace, communication, data processing, defense/military, education, health care, process & assembly industries, security, space and telecommunications.

Customers

Gowanda’s customers include Fortune 500 and Global 1000 companies and other significant players in the global market. Gowanda has earned the reputation of being a customer-driven supplier of high quality, highly reliable, ruggedized electronic components. The company’s time-tested ability to support its customers is the key reason that Gowanda continues to enjoy long-term contractual relationships with these major companies. Such relationships are especially important when off-the-shelf, mass produced components do not address the quality and performance requirements of demanding applications.

Investment

Ongoing investments in design capabilities, process equipment, testing & cleanroom facilities and quality standards strengthen and support Gowanda’s commitment to its customers. Vertical integration helps to assure shorter time-to-market for its customers. The company’s Manufacturing Technology Group is housed in a fully-equipped, state-of-the-art, machine tool and design center where prototype forming equipment and ancillary systems deliver quick turnaround proof-of-concept prototypes. Transfer molding expertise provides added value. The group also fabricates unique, proprietary process equipment to enable cost-effective production of custom and/or new-to-market electronic components. Gowanda’s in-house environmental lab is DLA approved (for internal product qualifications) and allows the company to streamline the testing/approval process in support of components for military and hi-rel applications. Four Class 100,000 cleanrooms support customers involved in particulate-sensitive applications, as in medical, military or space environments; the rooms are upgradable to Class 10,000 for added versatility. The company is certified to AS9100, ISO9001 and ISO13485 quality management standards.
