Reading time ( words)

ITW EAE is celebrating the 70th anniversary of the Electrovert brand of products built in Camdenton, Missouri. Founded in October 1951 by Nicholas J. Fodor, Electrovert manufactures wave soldering, reflow soldering, and precision cleaning equipment used in electronic manufacturing industries.

Electrovert builds capital equipment that is used in the manufacturing processes of printed circuit boards.  The machines are primarily used in the process that makes the solder joint between circuits and board, and the cleaning of the circuit board after the solder joint has been made.

Electrovert’s 70-year history involves many innovations and advancements which have resulted in growth. Electrovert introduced the concept of mass soldering to North America and followed that with the development of the Lambda wave, which literally "shaped" the wave soldering process. Originally headquartered in Montreal Quebec Canada, the company added facilities in LaPrairie Quebec and eventually merged with Dee Electric as part of its acquisition by UK conglomerate, Cookson Group plc. This was a complex deal that took place from 1981 to 1983 and resulted in doubling Electrovert's manufacturing capacity with the addition of a large facility in Camdenton, Missouri, which remains its primary plant today.

“The loyalty and dedication of our employees and support from our local communities remains a key factor to our success and growth”, says Camdenton’s site manager Geoff Klein. “Circuit board assemblies are used in automotive, portable devices, medical, military and many other markets. Our customers demand innovative technologies built at the highest levels of quality and workmanship. Our employees understand the globally competitive environment that we compete in and every individual in our facility plays an important role in meeting the expectations of our customers.”

An employee luncheon was held at the Camdenton facility where Electrovert products are manufactured to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Electrovert brand. All employees gathered together for a group photo to commemorate the event.

The Electrovert brand continues to be recognized as a global leader.  All Electrovert’s wave, reflow, and precision cleaning machines are designed and built in Camdenton Missouri. The state-of-the-art applications, training, and demo center located in Camdenton includes all current models of equipment which are available for testing and demonstrations.
