We were fortunate to have a wonderful turnout for the recent rework symposium that was held at BEST on Thursday, August 14th at BEST Inc in Rolling Meadows. Speakers from OK International, VJ Technologies and BEST spoke on various rework technologies and practices. In addition, there were demonstrations from the BEST staff , Chemtronix and PACE. Engineers saw how to do it !
Congratulations are in order to the BEST team which was rewarded with a INC Top 5,000 fastest growing companies in America award.
Do not forget to mark your calendars for BESTFest, our grand re-opening party taking place the week of IPC-Midwest / ATExpo in Chicago. If you are coming in from out of town this is your chance to see our newly-remodeled space and have some fun with games, food and drinks after the show!
Do not forget to see our new capabilities movie!
