Products: Semiconductors from 300 up to 12000A
and 200 up to 8500V
A wide variety of high power semiconductors using
conventional and future oriented technologies with high reliability
fulfilling the demand of the traction, industry and energy transmission
segments. This product portfolio comprises GTOs, IGBTs, IGCTs, Thyristors
and Diodes in the power range of 300 up to 12000 A and 200 up to 8500 V at
the highest levels of quality.
5S Components Inc is a result of a management
buyout of ABB Semiconductors Inc. by John Siefken and Kenny Stephenson.
Effective December 1, 2005, 5S Components became the successor to ABB
Semiconductors Inc. Kurt Hoerhager, Managing Director of ABB Switzerland
Semiconductors and Roland Villiger, Director of Sales, commented that
?Creating 5S guarantees focus on semiconductor sales in North America, a
vital part our growth strategy. John, Kenny and the 5S team have my full
backing and ABB will be able to support the North American Market and its
customers even better than in the past.
Since the mid 1980?s ABB has marketed it
semiconductor products in North America. After ABB was formed on Jan 1,
1988, ABB increased it focus on North American markets by having a dedicated
sales group, which was a part of ABB Technology Inc and was headquartered in
New Jersey. When John Siefken joined ABB in 1992, this sales operation was
moved to Pittsburgh and a new growth strategy was implemented.
As sales grew, additional people and product
lines were added that supported the semiconductor lines. Kenny Stephenson
joined the company in 1999. Andy Camardo joined the company in 2007 and Gary
Jones joined in 2010. GTO Gate Drivers, to support the sales of GTO
semiconductor devices were added in 1996. IGBT gate drivers were added in
2007, current and voltage sensors were added in 2003 and power capacitors in
When it became clear 2007, that the present
facilities were inadequate, the company decided to move to a new location
where adequate space was available for growth and expansion. In February
2008, 5S moved to it new location at 630 Fifth Avenue, in East McKeesport,
PA, a suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
