Our Facilities

Our 25,000 square foot facility houses office-based personnel, ceramic component manufacture, and assembly operations. The facility was designed and equipped to optimize cleanliness, organization, and process control.

50 Years of Corry Micronics 1970-2020

The Beginning

In 1970, Reggie Baker, former employee of Erie Technological Products, opened Corry Micronics, Inc. (CMI) in a humble building located in Corry, PA. CMI began with a small product line consisting of Filter/Bias Networks, Stripline Mounted RF Shorts, Feedthrough Devices, Stripline DC Blocks, and special thick film metalized Mica.

Military Quality, Kanban & Capacitors

During their first few decades, CMI was solely focused on the defense market and adhering to military quality standards. CMI paired their military quality with the lean manufacturing practices of Kanban inventory control and ushered in the development of what would become a signature product: Ceramic Feedthrough Capacitors for both the military and communications industries.

Acquisition & Modernization

In 2000, the Peterson brothers acquired Corry Micronics and brought with them a new wave of leadership and innovation. Don Pavlek, their new President and CEO, set out to modernize and improve the entirety of the operation: facilities, products and production, and personnel.

Production & Packaging for Success

The next decade was critical to the advancement of the company. It began with senior engineering hires who developed and patented the automation of several Ceramic Tubular Capacitors manufacturing processes resulting in an overall production cost reduction. This allowed for the development of new product packages such as Solder-in Filters, Filter Plates, Filtered Terminal Blocks, Filtered Connectors and Mil-Circular Connectors.

Innovate to Grow

It was clear that investing in top engineering talent was necessary to power future CMI growth, and the company opened a R&D complex attracting additional talent to the new innovation hub. The resulting complex portfolio of products included Band pass, Low pass, High pass, Band reject and All pass filters using technology such as LC, Crystal, Microstrip, Comb line, Cavity, Interdigital, Tubular, Waveguide, Ceramic Resonator and Helical.

Engineering Solutions

Top engineering talent equated to the ability to develop new products and solutions for the industries and clients CMI had become experts with.  Client challenges quickly became CMI solutions. This led to the development of of the lightest weight RF Filter available, as well as Diplexer and Multiplexers, Microwave, USB, Ethernet and HDMI filters.

Automate to Advance Again

Nearly ten years after their first automate-to-improve cycle, CMI harnessed the power of CNC machining to yet again reduce costs and speed manufacturing. This time, allowing the company to accelerate prototype development with advanced machining of housings.

CMI currently has four vertical CNC’s running five days a week, 17 hours a day.

Ever Evolving

CMI was now growing at double digit annual growth rates, but did not rest on its laurels. They continued their trend of innovate and evolve. Additional engineers joined the team, bringing new ideas such as the design of some of the world’s fastest and highest power RF Switches, Switch Matrices, Power Amplifiers and Sub-Systems.

A Timeless Sales Strategy

When most in the industry were relying on independent sales representation to push product, CMI chose to remain close to the client by selling direct. This sales strategy resulted in long-term relationships and the ability to hear firsthand what industries were looking for. CMI recently took this strategy overseas developing Corry Europe and establishing a partnership with UK’s PPM Systems.
