FUN FACT Cornell Dubilier’s roots can be traced back to 1909 when founder William Dubilier first used a glassy mineral called mica to help form a “condenser” (now called a “capacitor”). While the mica capacitor saw limited success for its intended application, it went on to revolutionize radio broadcast communications allowing for better transmission over longer distances.

A privately held, American owned company, Cornell Dubilier Electronics has earned a global reputation for manufacturing quality, high-end capacitors. Almost all of the company’s capacitors are used in demanding industrial applications, separating themselves from the competition. Working for this company means you could work in specialty critical application areas, ranging from fighter jets to radar systems and welders to wind turbines.
