What does IJ stands for?

Is IJ Research a manufacturing company or a research organization?

IJ Research is a manufacturing company. IJ Research is our chosen name with an idea to convey our internal R & D capability to customers who may need initial research and development and qualification of IJ Research and its processes as needed prior to volume production. IJ Research is not a pure research organization.

From our many years of operation in the field (since 1988), customers are aware of our outstanding reputation of quality, on-time delivery and a solution source for challenging projects.

Applications include military optical sensor assemblies, optical window assemblies and electrical feedthroughs for oil/gas applications, metallized ceramics for telecommunications, electrical feedthroughs for automotive applications, ceramic to metal seals with spiral geometry for analytical instrumentation, graphite metallization for military application, and many combinations of feedthroughs and optical windows in one unit.

Do you work on small jobs?

All of our current orders started as a prototype or small quantity qualification lot. We understand the initial job is critical to our future growth and invest substantial engineering resources into development. While many repeating production orders are in volume, all prototypes are small runs. The opportunity to work on initial qualification lots is considered an opportunity for us in terms of both collecting knowledge and potential future orders. Our customer’s success is our success, no matter the scale of the project.
