AMETEK, Inc. has added the technology for ceramic components to its microelectronics packaging business with the acquisition of General Ceramics, a privately owned manufacturer of highly engineered hermetic microelectronic packages for sophisticated electronic applications in the aerospace, defense, telecommunications and industrial markets.

“General Ceramics is an excellent addition to our HCC Industries business, acquired in 2005. HCC produces highly engineered hermetic connectors, terminals, headers and microelectronic packages that are essential in protecting sensitive electronic devices from environmental and thermal damage. General Ceramics’ product line of ceramic components and ceramic-to-metal packages is a natural extension of HCC’s product range,” said AMETEK Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Frank S. Hermance.
