Since the introduction of rare earth magnets in the 1970s, Electron Energy Corporation (EEC) has been the preferred source for manufacturing and supplying samarium cobalt magnets (SmCo). EEC’s SmCo 34 grade material is one of the highest performance materials available, ideal across a range of applications, from biomedical equipment to microwave signal amplifiers.

As a DDTC Registered company, EEC is a leading supplier of ITAR compliant products.  As the only remaining U.S. producer of samarium cobalt, EEC also provides DFAR compliant materials.  EEC is certified to AS9100D and ISO 9001:2015 with the systems in place to satisfy DPAS rated (DX or DO) requirements.


As a producer of permanent magnet materials, EEC has a deep understanding of the science behind the materials. This allows for superior product development and time to market due to the reduction of costly defects. This additional insight separates EEC from competitors and allows its engineering team to provide best-in-class service to customers. EEC’s application engineering team works closely with customers to develop magnet solutions and optimize design performance. In addition to application engineering, EEC also provides contracted engineering support and research and development services.

EEC’s Samarium Cobalt magnets are the ultimate choice for high-performance applications including:

  • High Speed Motor Applications
  • Generators and Actuators
  • Microwave Signal Amplification
  • Aircraft and Aerospace Assemblies
  • Biomedical and Surgical Equipment
  • Oil and Gas Equipment
