  • Manufacturers/Industry:    

    Recently Superconductors.ORG wrote several maufacturers regarding their position on RoHS. None of them responded. A second batch of letters were written. And again, none replied. Such behavior is not only rude and unprofessional, it is unacceptable. As such, Superconductors.ORG will no longer provide free links to manufacturers. Each manufacturer who wished to be listed must make a commitment to professional and courteous communications with the public. The below manufacturers have made this commitment.
