About Micrometals

The company began more than 65 years ago by Dick Barden and he and his family still continue to oversee operations today.  Micrometals headquarters in Anaheim, California is the only powder core manufacturing facility remaining in the US.
In 2010, Micrometals acquired the alloy powder core products of Arnold Magnetic Technologies and began transforming that business into a leader in alloy powder cores.  We continue to invest across our businesses with new materials, core shapes and production capabilities to help our customers maintain their competitive advantage.

In total, Micrometals has three global production facilities totaling more than 240,000 ft2 (22,300 m2) and we are the largest manufacturer of distributed gap powder cores.  We also formulate our own powders to assure they meet our quality and performance standards and provide unmatched consistency to our customers.  Our facilities meet or exceed the highest ISO standards.

Today, Micrometals serves thousands of customers around the globe, from winding houses to tier 1 manufacturers.  Our products are widely used in power applications in nearly every major industrial market around the world including automotive, industrial, communications, medical, electronic, 
home appliances, military and aerospace.
