Dec  2013 

Dear Electronics Assembly Colleague:  

After much Turkey with way too many trimmings, we find ourselves in the home stretch of 2013. We are thankful for much, including our clients, vendors and employees.


My last west coast trip found me at some of the largest semi and tech companies in Silicon Valley. It was exciting to see that the tech sector is doing well again (though some non brick and mortar, no profit company IPOs seem to be a replay of 2000). As part of that experience, I got to go to a San Jose Sharks hockey game. In Chicago, you cannot walk up the day of the game and sit 8 rows up from the back of the net! 

A Merry Christmas and a Successful New Year!
