TDK-Lambda Americas was founded in 1945 as a manufacturer of electronic instruments to serve the military R & D market. In the years following its inception, then Electronic Measurements became more involved in the design and development of DC power supplies. EMI was purchased by Rowan Industries in 1964 and in 1970, was spun off to become a privately held corporation.
Growth in power supply technologies continued through acquisition of New Jersey Electronics (NJE), manufacturer of fixed output AC/DC power and Applied Laser Electronics (later shortened to ALE systems, Inc.) ALE provides innovative high voltage/high power products for Lasers, Power Modulators, RF tubes and Accelerators.
In 1986, EMI was acquired by Berwind Group, a 120 year old, family-owned business. In 1995 EMI moved from Berwind Industries, as a wholly owned subsidiary, to a company under management by Berwind Financial, allowing EMI senior management to take equity positions. In 1998, Electronic Measurements, Inc. (EMI) was acquired by Siebe Power Controls, a division of Siebe plc, the parent company of Lambda Electronics, Inc.
