Asheville Mica Company was established in 1899 in Asheville, NC. In the mid-1940’s Asheville Mica combined with A.O. Schoonmaker, a New York importer and manufacturer of natural mica, and Mica Company of Canada, a manufacturer of mica plate products. The collective companies relocated to the present Newport News, VA location as Asheville-Schoonmaker Mica Co.
Our products are used in a wide variety of industries such as small appliances, strip heaters, tubular heaters, high voltage transformers, traction and D.C. motors, grid resistors, thermal batteries and electronics. In short, wherever there is a requirement for high dielectric and/or high thermal resistance.
