Main Events of our History
Founded in 1947 as “Elektroindustriewerk Freiberg”, the company started with the manufacturing of paper-capacitors.
The “VEB Kondensatorenwerk Freiberg” have produced not just radial and axial aluminum-electrolytic-capacitors, but also high capacitive aluminum-electrolytic-capacitors and tantalum-capacitors.
1992 was the foundation’s year of “FROLYT Kondensatoren und Bauelemente GmbH”. The essential company parts were bought from the Treuhandanstalt as part of a management-buy-out, and three business fields were adopted: aluminum-electrolytic-capacitors, special machines and assembly of power supply equipment for mobil- and landlines.
Between 1990 and 1992 happened a reorientation of the company. The product range were reduced. Company shares were sold and new business fields were created.
