The process at Hydra is highly efficient with a totally controlled environment and 100% testing in all steps of production. Therefore, we are confident that only top quality products are delivered from our factories.
In addition to providing our large orders, we here at Hydra can also provide small and mid level orders with high efficiency and cost effective as Hydra production is extremely flexible. Due to our flexibility, we also are able to produce custom made capacitors at no extra cost to our customers.
All Hydra capacitors use metalized polypropylene foil (MKP technology) and are produced in our manufacturing facilities using our own designed machines so nothing is out sourced.
Producing a simple capacitor is easy. But producing top quality capacitors for a reasonable price is the challenge we face every day. With our dedicated and knowledgeable staff we feel we can provide our customers with quality products.
