The company's roots in electronics began during the formative years of wave soldering and a relationship with Electrovert which remains in place today. An additional 3,000 capital and consumable products from over 50 different manufacturers are now available covering virtually every facet of printed circuit electronics assembly and repair.
A continually evolving business model characterized by a uniquely executed blend of technical expertise and customer-centric attention to detail has enabled the company to successfully navigate the numerous economic cycles and technology changes that have taken place since 1960. It is now a third generation family owned business introducing a new wave of commercial initiatives and enabling new processes for a customer base that now spans five Midwest states. Family owned businesses are consensually estimated to represent at least 29 percent of the U.S. GDP and 78 percent of new job creation.
Company President Murray Percival explained, "Maintaining the core values upon which the company was founded is crucial to us but at the same time we know that change is essential. New programs underway include a highly sophisticated e-commerce presence and our multi-faceted EVP strategy…Enhanced Vendor Partnerships. A key component of EVP is a new VMI (Vendor Managed Inventory) program already in full swing. Essentially, our business is characterized by a commitment to nurturing an advanced skills set."
