Eric Miscoll of Charlie Barnhart & Associates was guest editor at electronica for the EMSNow team and he sat down to discuss his week with Philip Stoten. The two chatted about the changing world of EMS and what the industry might look like moving forward.
CBA was struck by the irony of a news article recently quoting Terry Gou, head of Taiwanese EMS company Foxconn (Hon Hai), offering to train Americans in electronics manufacturing. The thought was he wanted to help President Obama bring jobs back from China. We read some arrogance and perhaps taunting in that comment from Mr. Gou. It caused us to reflect on the background of his company.
