Wurth Electronics Midcom Builds New Headquarters in South Dakota 

Construction begins on new Wurth Midcom headquarters in South Dakota 

Wurth Electronics Midcom held a ground-breaking ceremony April 24 for construction of a new 70,000 sq ft headquarters facility at its site in Watertown, South Dakota. A business unit of the Wurth Elektronik group of companies based in Germany, it manufactures a broad range of electromechanical and electronic components, many of them magnetic devices. 

The 3-story facility will provide more space to accommodate the company’s recent and expected future growth. It has grown more than 12% annually during the 17 years since it was acquired by Wurth Elektronik, said Don Rigdon, president of Wurth Midcom, according to local broadcast station KXLG which covered the ceremony. 

Among the EMC components in Wurth’s line of passives are the WE-RFI which combines a wire-wound SMT bead ferrite and a ferrite SMT inductor in one component. 
In its portfolio of power magnetic components, Wurth recently expanded its molded power inductor series with new high-temperature versions. While high temperatures in inductors with an iron alloy magnetic core such as these can result in thermal aging phenomena with core losses rising sharply and efficiency dropping, the new versions provide power inductors unaffected by thermal aging but which do do not suffer any performance loss from it. 

Founded in Niedernhall, Germany, the Wurth Elektronik group of companies employs around 7,900 people worldwide and in 2023 generated sales of €1.24 billion. For more info, see www.we-online.com
