Joseph Federico Vice President and Engineer of NJ MET

Joseph Federico of Wayne, New Jersey is the Vice President and Director of Operations of NJ MET and has been a successful electronic engineer for years. NJ MET was co-founded by Giacomo Federico and two other partners in 1978. In 1980 Joseph Federico started as a Test Operator for Solid State Electronics at NJMET. After earning an Associate degree in Electrical Engineering Technology from the Metropolitan Technical Institute, Joseph went on to graduate with a Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering Technology from Fairleigh Dickinson University (FDU).

While attending college, Joseph Federico, working under the then president of NJMET, initiated a military testing department accommodating the SDI program initiated by the Reagan administration. The success of this department opened the door for NJMET to be recognized by other organizations, winning contracts with companies such as the Boeing Company, Honeywell International Inc., the former British Aerospace and Lockheed Martin Corporation.

That was only the first of Joseph Federico’s successes to come. After several extensive visits to the Asian-Pacific region researching the counterfeit components epidemic, Joseph Federico created the world’s first electronic component counterfeit detection program in 2003. NJMET’s position as an industry leader became clear when the world’s largest online electronic component trading center adopted Joseph Federico’s new program.

Joseph Federico is now internationally known in the electronics industry and is the first American engineer invited to Israel, Russia, and China to speak about counterfeit electronic components. Joseph Federico lectures at the P. Muscarelle Center at the FDU on this global epidemic of counterfeit electronic components.

Joseph Federico has become an accomplished engineer, Director of Operations and the Vice-President of NJMET Electronics in Clifton New Jersey.

Mr. Federico has presented talks at many industry meetings.  You can see the slides from some of his presentations on the Presentations page of the NJMET web site.
