Indium Corporation, a global pioneer in materials science and electronics assembly solutions, commemorates its 90th anniversary on 13 March 2024.

Indium Corporation’s innovative products, especially its advanced soldering solutions, are found in many common consumer electronics and high-reliability technologies such as electric vehicles, mobile devices, life-saving medical devices, and emerging 5G technology to name just a few.

Indium Corporation was founded in Utica, NY, US, in 1934 by Dr. William S. Murray who was instrumental in identifying and enabling the first commercially viable applications for indium metal. Today, the company is a premier materials refiner, smelter, manufacturer, and supplier to the global electronics, semiconductor, thin-film, and thermal management markets with facilities in China, Germany, India, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, the UK, and the US.

The company’s products include solders and fluxes; brazes; thermal interface materials; sputtering targets; indium, gallium, germanium, and tin metals and inorganic compounds; and NanoFoil.

Currently, over five million EVs are on the road with Indium Corporation’s solder and thermal management solutions for high reliability. Additionally, products such as award-winning Durafuse LT and the company’s Reclaim and Recycle initiative are at the forefront of sustainability within the industry.

“This milestone is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our employees, the trust of our customers, and the support of our global partners,” said President and COO Ross Berntson. “It also provides a great opportunity to reflect on our achievements, celebrate our present successes, and envision a richer future enabled by Indium Corporation’s materials science.”

“True to Dr. Murray’s enduring legacy, we continue to be motivated by curiosity to view materials in new ways,” Berntson added. “Fuelled by a commitment to research and development, our industry thought leaders and cutting-edge products, Indium Corporation continues to innovate and grow.”

Indium Corporation is committed to playing a leadership role in the future of the global electronics assembly industry. In 2023 alone, the company joined the American Semiconductor Innovation Coalition (ASIC), European Center for Power Electronics (ECPE), and India Electronics and Semiconductor Association (IESA).

Within the same year, Indium Corporation was also honoured with CIRCUITS ASSEMBLY’s New Product Introduction Award, EM World’s Innovation Award, IEEE Malaysia’s Outstanding Industry Award for Innovation, Electronics Maker’s Best of Industry Award for Best Soldering Product of the Year, two Global Technology Awards from Global SMT and Packaging in Flux and Adhesive/Underfills/Encapsulants categories, Mexico EMS’ Mexico Technology Award for Solder Paste, and SMTA’s Technical Distinction Award bestowed upon Dr. HongWen Zhang.

In addition to its industry-leading products and technical expertise, Indium Corporation also proudly supports the communities in which it operates through charitable contributions, advancing STEM education at all levels, and fostering workforce development in STEM industries. Indium Corporation also works with military veterans to make successful transitions to private sector careers. Through its outreach efforts, the company impacts more than 5,000 lives annually.

“Just as we believe that materials science changes the world, we believe that today’s students will build our future successes,” said Associate Vice President of Human Resources Dawn Roller. “To that end, we are committed to bolstering community educational resources, especially those that advance the promise and vitally important work being done in STEM fields.”
