Permanent & Electromagnets for Automation | AEC Magnetics

china usa aecWith all of the rigmarole surrounding the U.S-China trade tension, a number of queries coming in to AEC Magnetics concern quality,  price and availability, since China is permanent magnet-maker to the world.  While we don't speak for the industry, we can tell you that AEC Magnetics' sources for permanent magnets--including super-strength neodymiums--remains robust, timely and open.  This is in large part due to our carefully selected sources in China, sources with whom we enjoy long and solid relationships.  "I have spent years building our network of China suppliers," said Bill Klaus, president of AEC Magnetics.  "It is crucial to AEC to be able to provide the best quality, the best supply chain and the best value in permanent magnets to our customers on a day-to-day basis.  It's what we are known for.  However, during the current U.S.-China trade situation, we are finding just how critical these relationships are for our customers."

"We also offer blanket sales; that is, we will lock in today's pricing for large orders but release those magnets to you on your schedule."
