From their modest beginnings in a Landisville, PA milk house, they pioneered the development and commercialization of rare earth permanent magnets. EEC is an established strong, international niche player and one of the most innovative companies in the industry, providing the world’s highest performance and the most extensive offerings of Samarium Cobalt magnets.

Their small, family-owned and operated business of 120 employees adds value to customers by not only producing high quality samarium cobalt magnet materials, but also by designing magnetic circuits utilizing 2 and 3D finite element analysis, and building rare earth magnet assemblies and systems.

In a worldwide rare earth permanent magnet market of $5.1 billion per year, dominated by large players in China and Japan, EEC is the last US operated producer of rare earth magnets. Their unique strategic production capabilities and knowledge are utilized by both US government contractors and the Department of Defense in many weapons systems and programs. EEC’s markets include aerospace, military, medical, microwave, generator, motor and motion control applications.
