    August 2, 1982, AEC Magnetics president Dick Klaus was in a pinch. He needed an employee--a good employee--right away, but could not find the right person. Though his son, Bill Klaus, was well-qualified, having had just graduated from Ohio State with degrees in mechanical engineering and business, Bill was embarking on a career search and had several hot irons in the fire. Bill put his career search on hold to help out his dad temporarily. Today, 36 years later, Bill is president of AEC...

Our China suppliers keep us very informed and up-to-date on production and planning, and AEC knows China slashed its rare earths production quota by 70 percent this year, in some part because they were plentiful in the world market in 2017. Some analysts believe that, in case of a repeat of...

  • The Hearts of Children 06/04/2018 18:48:18

    The strogest attractive force on earth is not a magnet.  It is the hearts of these children behind me in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.  Hi, I'm Patricia Klaus from AEC Magnetics.  Corazon de Ninos attracted me, and AEC Magnetics, a few years ago at Mass and forged a forever bond with us.  Corazon de Nina, or "Heart of the Child," is a home for almost 60 at-risk boys and girls in Puerto Vallarta. Corazon's story is amazing. Puerto Vallarta is incredibly poor in many areas.  An overwhelming number of children...
