Strong R&D concentrates on new-generation markets
When Firstohm was first established in 1969, we had oriented ourselves in the specilization of thick film and thin film resistors. Firstohm acquired substantial resistor manufacturing techniques from Japan in 1974, and further acquired a major resistor factory from SONY in 1982. In 1986, Firstohm acquired an NEC subsidiary Yokohama Electronics for its technology of precision metal film resistors. Afterwards, Firstohm successfully developed chip resistor, surge resistor. In 1991, Firstohm developed high-end MELF SMD resistor, which drew large quantity of orders from Thomson, a worldwide leader in electronic products. In 1999, Firstohm successfully developed 50KV-degree high voltage resistors, which obtained orders from the French car maker Renault. We pioneered many types of resistors in Taiwan, as well as in the world. Firstohm has succeeded in long-term achievement of R&D, and managed our competitive niche in the market.

With Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), conductive film of a high-voltage resistor is observed，which predicts voltage parameters of the resistors.
High Degree of Flexibility and Automation of Production Lines
FIRSTOHM's consistent investment in the best manufacturing equipment has gained a competitive corperate image of quality, reliability and price by our own knowhow in maintenance, modification, and flexible utilization of the equipment.
Because of our effort in improving product quality and reliability, Firstohm Co. had been awarded the best performance by Phillips and AT&T. Firstohm Co., also has been award Best Enterprise Award by TEEMA. These honors also very helpful when we develop a new market.
Besides, we obtained ISO 9002 certification in 1998. Next year, we obtained IECQ certification. This year, we pass the evaluation of ISO 14000. This certificate improves our effort in production control and reducing the harm to environment.
Professional R&D service team
In order to keep up on the fast change of market, FIRSTOHM adopts a flat managerial structure to facilitate pace of decision making. The management team here at FIRSTOHM also has full understanding of customers’ applications and material science. Thus, resistor technology is manipulated as a state-of-the-art skill at FIRSTOHM and new products can be developed in a speedy manner. We have successfully developed some specialty resistors such as Short Circuit Protection Resistor, Dual Power Resistor, High Humidity Resistor, etc.
