Founded in 1956 in Japan, Nihon Almit is one of the pioneers in the development and manufacturing of solder wires. The basis for the company's rapid and constant growth were several excellent inventions such as soldering agents for aluminium or a solder to join nickel-chromium wires with bi-metals.
Today, Almit is one of the leading providers of solder wires, solder pastes and of course lead-free solders, which are successfully applied in the automotive, medical technology and aerospace industry, as well as in the field of consumer electronics.
Almit’s first big project was the invention of the first solder for aluminium soldering in 1956. It became a huge success, as it was used – among other projects- for the Japanese highspeed train „Shikansen“. In 1982, Almit literally reached for the stars: its solder wire KR-19 went to space as part of NASA’s space shuttles – the international breakthrough for Almit. In 1984, an additional development centre was set up in the city of Akiruno, enabling the company to manufacture outstanding sprecial purpose solders during a period of rapid growth of the electronics industry. In the year 1985, the company was awarded a price in the „10th Invention Grand Prix“ for its achievements in product development and also won the „Distinguished Service Award“ granted by the capital city of Tokyo.
Almit belongs to the Top 5 of the internationally leading producers and distributors of soldering material.
4 headquarters (Japan, Germany, United Kingdom, Sweden).
