My thoughts on ...
EMS companies I have worked with
I have successfully partnered with nearly every tier one EMS provider as well as many smaller providers from $5 million in annual sales to more than $40 billion in annual sales.

What I think about low-cost manufacturing
I believe that more importantly than just "low-cost manufacturing" it's more important to get it right the first time with the best people and service available. While cost is extremely important, never under value exceptional service, on-time delivery, and 'doing the right thing' verses 'being right'.

One of my favorite quotes
"If you're going through Hell, keep going". Winston Churchill

Some of the countries I have visited for work or play
Mexico, Canada, Germany, Costa Rica, Bahamas

A helpful travel tip I often use
It's better to be an hour early than a minute late!
