Pizza, Beer, and NFL Sunday

Are there any football fans out there? Football season is in full swing, which is like heaven for some of us. There's not much better than kicking back on Sunday, enjoying a beer, and watching the Broncos win against the Vikings. 

Why do I bring up football? because competition is good! So good, in fact, that we want to dare you to compare us to your current manufacturing partner. What's in it for you? Easy, 40% off Papa John's pizza. This way you can enjoy a slice of cheesy goodness while you sip a Bud Light and watch the games this weekend!

Good luck this Sunday,

Director of Football Greatness

*The views and opinions on the Broncos do not necessarily represent the views of NAS Electronics Manufacturing, even if our founders are devout Broncos fans themselves.
**No offense is meant to Vikings fans, I have nothing against the Vikings and actually have Adrian Peterson on my fantasy team. But you will lose to us this Sunday.
This offer is only good for 7 days after posting.

Caribbean Vacation

Ahhhh... September in Las Vegas. A time of year when the temperature finally drops to... 102?!?! I hope the weather is better wherever you are... Our Vegas weather is not being very kind. If only we could get away to a beach somewhere in the Caribbean. Instead, we're stuck here at work.

First Dates

   Was asking you to get a quote moving to fast for our new relationship? I apologize for that, I've always had a tendency to move too fast. Let's try going on another first date, and I promise, no talk about marriage yet!

Pizza Party!

         Have you been reading out emails? Probably not, because they're pretty boring. Anyways, I had a glass of wine over the weekend (okay, it was a bottle) and realized two things:
1. Pizza does, in fact, pair well with Pinot Noir at midnight.
2. Our marketing campaign stinks!

The Aftermath of the West Coast Labor Dispute

         If you have had longer than normal supply chain delays as of late, you undoubtedly know that a major reason has been the West coast port closure. Laborers have been in negotiations for better wages, effectively shutting down most West coast ports and leading to massive delays. While we are not the only industry affected by this, it has definitely affected the electronics supply chain.

A Better BOM Scrub

Over 350,000 components went obsolete in 2013 according to Silicon Expert Technologies. That is a number not likely to favor the uninformed. With so many parts going obsolete every day, what are you doing to mitigate your exposure?  The preferred option for many Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) is to proactively scrub their Bill of Materials (BOM). By continually monitoring the raw materials used to build your products, you can prevent unforeseen problems and expenses.

Offshore Sourcing - Ensuring Your Success

Many Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) are choosing to source the parts needed for production from offshore suppliers. If done correctly, this can help to keep you competitive in the marketplace, but one wrong step can have the exact opposite effect. Many larger OEMs conduct site visits with their offshore suppliers to ensure they meet the OEM’s criteria. Most small to mid-sized companies do not have the resources to do this, so here are a few ideas that won’t require a 12,000 mile trip while ensuring the best possible outcome.

The Future of Electronics Manufacturing for OEM’s and CM’s

The electronics manufacturing industry is undergoing some dramatic changes. Intense pricing pressures, pipeline challenges, increasing global competition and the constant need for even faster response times are all reshaping the decision making process for many Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). Contract Manufacturers (CMs) will need to transform to keep up, and those that differentiate their service offerings and capabilities will retain customers and grow their business. As Glen Wayne, our CEO points out, “This is a highly competitive marketplace and CMs that adapt quickly will position themselves as market leaders.”

Keeping Counterfeit Parts Out of Your Assembly Process

Everyone can agree counterfeit parts lead to unreliable products, drive up costs, and can damage your brand. It is becoming increasingly difficult to identify counterfeit parts as the producers are getting better at their craft. It’s a continuous cat and mouse game with each side trying to outsmart the other.
