About Us

Neosid Australia Limited (NAL) was established in 1956 to support the Australian Electronics industries.

Neosid Ferrites and Magnetic Materials are ideal for the traditional RF applications e.g. coils, suppression, ariels, and for the modern necessities of the market place, namely Switch Mode Power Supplies (SMPS), Current Transformers, Pulse Transformers, Common Mode Chokes, Light Dimmers, Circuit Breaker Chokes, Inductors, Fly-Backs, Energy Storage Chokes, Electro Magnetic Compatibility and High Frequency Impeder Welding.

Neosid (UK) Ltd, the parent company of NAL was founded in 1936. The main products at this time were Suppressor Cores and components for Radar and Radio Communications for the Ministry of Defence.

After 1945 a range of soft ferrite materials were added, going into transistor radios and black and white televisions. These were the nickel-zinc ranges such as our still widely used F14 and F16 materials. With the onset of colour televisions a range of manganese-zinc materials were developed for various applications including line drive transformers, width control coils and the essential power supplies. The in-house manufacture of accessories such as Coil Formers, Bobbins and Clips, as well as Permanent Magnets including Isotropic/Anisotropic Ferrites and Rare Earth magnets, supplemented Neosid’s extensive range of Magnetic Materials.

In 1956 NAL was established as an additional manufacturing facility with presses and kilns to support the production of ferrites for the Australian Electronics Industry. Australia at this time had a vibrant Electronics industry, with some of NAL’s major customers including: Amalgamated Wireless (Australasia) Ltd (AWA), PYE, Philips, Decca, EMI, STC, Siemens-Plessey, GEC, Hawker Siddeley, and Radio Corporation.

With the removal of Tariff Protection in the early 1970’s mass manufacturing of electronics in Australia declined. NAL still supports the remaining manufacturers as well as the niche businesses that have flourished since this time.

Ferrites are intrinsically Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) compliant, and are manufactured to ISO 9001 standards.
