The deal boost the production capabilities in custom high-voltage film capacitors for pulsed power and power conversion applications as CDE forms the CD Snow Hill subsidiary for industrial, military, and medical customers.

“NWL has long been an industry leader in the design and manufacture of high voltage AC and DC film capacitors for applications where we see opportunities for growth.”, said Jim Kaplan, CEO of Cornell Dubilier. “This acquisition greatly expands our capabilities in custom capacitors needed for high-power lasers, military propulsion systems, inverters and more.”

According to Robert Seitz, President of NWL, the sale of their capacitor operations will allow NWL to focus on its other core business segments: transformers, electrostatic precipitators, and power supplies.  Cornell Dubilier plans to assume operations at NWL’s former plant in Snow Hill, NC. Employees of the Snow Hill operation, many of them highly experienced, will be employed by Cornell Dubilier. The value of the deal was not disclosed.

NWL has four plants, with Bordentown, New Jersey, producing power supplies and transformers. The plants in Riviera Beach, Florida and Snow Hill, North Carolina are dedicated to capacitor manufacturing. NWL Pacific, a joint venture company performs dual roles as a distributor and manufacturer of NWL equipment in Gyeonggi-do, South Korea.

The addition of the NWL custom, high-voltage DC and AC film capacitors sits alongside multiple dielectric technologies including aluminum electrolytic, film, mica, and supercapacitors.

Cornell Dubilier provides capacitors for inverters, wind and solar power, electric vehicles, power supplies, motor drives, HVAC, motors, welding, aerospace, telecom, medical equipment, and UPS systems.  It has ISO-9001 certified manufacturing and distribution facilities in Liberty, SC; New Bedford, MA; Mexicali, Mexico; and Hong Kong.
