EPCOS merged from Siemens Matsushita Components, a joint venture founded in 1989 by Siemens and Matsushita. After EPCOS had been listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and NYSE as the independent enterprise, the 90% of the shares were bought by TDK Corp.
EPCOS in numbers is 21200 employees in 20 points of the presence all over the world, 65% of the electronic components world market, sales on 1,5 BUSD in 2008. Imagine that in the single car can contain as many as 10,000 such components, and almost each is made by EPCOS.
We found much in common very easily with the new client, because Gars Telecom like EPCOS uses the modern technologies and permanently integrates the new and progressive innovations. We hope, that the foremost telecommunication solutions will become the important component of the EPCOS Moscow office.
