Just checked, and you are correct.

Manufacturing of Evox Rifa large can electrolytics has now been moved to a low wage / weak currency location - Weymouth in England!!!

Seems that BHC are now making them under the Evox name.

Guess it's all part of the Goliath that is KEMET (TM)....

I suppose now I'll have to be patriotic for Evox Rifa instead!

If you want a swedish brand, RIFA is the only one

Do some 1997 NOS caps need to be "reformed"?
I do not have the PS to do it.

(ps: hi Matthew )

Hi Matthieu!

As these are stud-mount, you might also need to borrow a hacksaw ;-)

Well the caps are 20% tolerance, so I reckon that gives a shelf-life of 8-12 years ;-)
