Tim Hemphill of ATL Technology www.atltechnology.com said it's been a really good show so far. They have picked up some really good leads and met a lot of people.
We had fun reminiscing about the electronics industry. he started selling for electronics in 1978. he even work for Foxconn when they were young. he remembers driving Terry Gou around to see customers when it was just a small company.
ATL manufacturers Costa Rica and Dongguan.
The Benchmark Electronics representatives so they're having a good show. The Northeast region is big for Benchmarks medical device assembly services.
it is always a question what the new year will bring. Will it be better than last year? Will be worse? I'm already getting those questions from people, what is it looking like?
So far it's looking really good. The job activity from last year is strong and continues. Of course the first quarter is always tricky. It usually starts out really strong and then people start fidgeting with budgets. Things get put on hold and a lot of jobs get pushed out into the second quarter. We'll see how this year goes but I'm optimistic.
“Entrepreneurship is the pursuit of opportunity without regard to resources currently controlled.” Professor Howard Stevenson of Harvard Business SchoolI love this quote... gotta be a Visionary to create something truly new!
What most call "disruptive" is merely adaptive.
StepBeyond.com is the culmination of 25 years of trying to figure out how to "fix" the employment matching problem. In 1988, after completing a Bachelors degree, (prior degree AAS 1982 Wood Tech) I picked up the classic "What Color is Your Parachute" and read...the way the employment systems operates doesn't work, but it is what we have so....
The entrepreneur/ visionary/ rebel in me said "NO! Not good enough. If something is broken fix it!"
25 years later my vision (and sweat) finally began paying off.
StepBeyond.com is "disruptive"...Connecting more people to their best job, Finding the best people for the job, Saving companies money on the process (even over having their own internal recruiters!!!!)

SCHAUMBURG, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 27, 2013-- Sparton Corporation (NYSE: SPA) has again been recognized with honors by the medical design community. The latest award, in the category of In Vitro Diagnostics, was presented at an awards ceremony for the Medical Design Excellence Awards last week as part of the Medical Design & Manufacturing East Conference and Exposition in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA) program honors the highest caliber medical devices on the market today and celebrates the achievements of designers, engineers, and manufacturers. The MDEA is an annual awards ceremony that is organized by UBM Canon and recognized throughout the industry for its prestige.
“We are once again excited and proud to stand on the platform in recognition of our contributions as a design team”, commented Dave Lapeus, Director of Design Engineering for Sparton Corporation in Strongsville, Ohio. “It feels great to have been recognized not only this year, but four times out of the last five years. This recognition gives credibility to the emphasis we are placing on design services for Sparton, in addition to our manufacturing services.”
Sparton’s design and engineering services include, but are not limited to, the disciplines of electrical, mechanical and software design with specific emphasis on medical devices in the diagnostic, therapeutic, surgical instrumentation, and laboratory fields.
“Sparton has a proud heritage in the manufacturing of full medical device assemblies, and I am happy to say that we are building a heritage on the design side”, added Mike Gaul, General Manager of Sparton in Strongsville, OH. “It is great to see colleagues in the industry rewarding Sparton for our work and to have the opportunity to move Sparton to the forefront as an organization with quality design capabilities.”
"We focus on the full product lifecycle," commented Cary Wood, president and CEO.

Reshoring has been a buzzword for years. Mostly Tier 2 and High Mix Low Volume was the beneficiary. Now High Volume is getting into the game. I visited Flextronics new factory last week "The 1st SmartPhone Factory in the USA" last week, a sign of more to come! StepBeyond has hundreds of salaried jobs to fill ASAP, production in <90 days.

CAREER CONNECTOR – ReShoring Jobs to Texas!
I am excited to have been asked to help with the career and job service of the Dallas SMTA chapter. I have been a member of the chapter on and off since about 1993. Back then SMT was the hot new thing and there were hundreds of new jobs for SMT Engineers. There is very good news about the electronic manufacturing job market once again. Companies are actually adding jobs, not just replacing people.
Companies are hiring. Following a long winter for job seekers in this industry there is good news. The reshoring and nearshoring movement is really picking up steam. In the USA and Europe OEMs are demanding product be made closer to the end customer. Even consumer electronic giants Apple and Google are having some of their new product made in the USA. Foxconn is building a new plant in Houston for Apple. Flextronics recently closed on the purchase of Motorola Mobility, they will be building Google MMI according to news reports.
Flextronics has 149 jobs at their new Alliance Airport facility! Housed in the former, immense, Nokia cell phone plant, this is a major sign of the reshoring effect. The press release on the operation and major customer was due out last week but I haven’t seen it yet. Even if you don’t want to work at Alliance I expect that many jobs will reshuffle employees all over the city. People working far from home will take those jobs, opening up opportunities across the city.
StepBeyond will be meeting with Flextronics on site this week. Flextronics will be utilizing StepBeyond's RPO/Outsourced recruiting model to staff positions without increasing their cost-per-hire over current recruiting systems.
Contact me if you wish to be connected with any of their jobs. I am working directly with the HR Representative and Operations Management to fill key roles immediately.
