Ohmite was founded in 1925 on the west side of Chicago. This brand is a leading producer of resistors of all kinds. The resistors are also available for high voltages, currents, and energies so that no undesirable energy source can leak out of control. These are used in a variety of areas and markets all over the world. Heico Companies LLC acquired it in 1998, and Ohmite reached several milestones with its support.
