Leader Tech, a well known name in EMI shielding, has opened its new Global EMI Technology Center in Tampa, FL. According to Leader Tech president Dario Negrini, “Every detail of our new one-of-a-kind facility has been engineered to streamline and improve our customer service, engineering, and manufacturing processes. The new expansion encompasses all facets of the business including people, building size, and equipment and has drastically increased our productivity and capacity across all three of our core product lines including board, enclosure, and cable shielding.” Director of sales and marketing Tim Black noted that many businesses had sent their manufacturing facilities offshore. According to Black, “As a core value of our company, we believe that customers are better served when they talk directly to a live applications engineer instead of a machine.” Learn more details by visiting the Leader Techwebsite.
