TDK-Lambda UK, a group company of TDK Corporation, was established in London England in 1959 as Coutant Electronics. Today TDK-Lambda UK is Britain's largest designer and manufacturer of both standard and configurable AC-DC and DC-DC power supplies.
TDK-Lambda UK supply AC-DC power supplies, DC-DC converters, Programmable (Laboratory) power supplies and EMC/EMI filters to the UK market. Worldwide Sales and Service are handled by a wide network of TDK-Lambda offices and distributors.
TDK's corporate motto of "contributing to culture and industry through creativity" reflects the spirit of the company's founder and first president, Kenzo Saito who achieved the commercialisation of ferrite. This motto, together with the corporate principles of Vision, Courage, and Trust, truly expresses our management philosophy.
TDK-Lambda believes and understands the value and importance of supporting education. Whilst technical subjects are demanding and challenging to study, they can unlock and offer tremendous potential and rewards for students wishing to pursue careers in engineering and science.
Nevertheless, as a design and manufacturing enterprise based in North Devon, some distance from large cities and universities, attracting and retaining sufficient engineering talent can often be difficult. We remain committed to investing in and nurturing potential young talent, helping to inspire them to become the next generation of engineers and scientists. Engineering and management staff across all areas of our business regularly give their time to get involved with a wide range of initiatives. Working closely with a range of organisations, we actively support and encourage young people to develop valuable technical skills throughout their studies and beyond.
As an anchor employer in the South West Institute of Technology we can directly influence and help build advanced manufacturing knowledge, skills and careers in the region.
